PICNIC Festival 2012 will be an international gathering of approximately 3500 professionals representing business, technology, government and non profit, education and the creative industries.
Engage! TV is Picnic's partner for the production of all conference session videos. Engage! is a company that produces multicamera events videos, webcasts and talkshow. Over 20 lectures and presentations will be available online soon after the festival.
