A lot of things have been shifted to fully digital in recent months — something that also happened to our EXPO booklet which has been kept in a stealth mode for quite a while now.

This year however we decided to revive it and — since not everybody will be able to make it to the location on July 7th — we also provide you with a digital copy. Please avoid printing the pdf ;)
