The countdown is on to the Spätschicht X-Mas Party


It’s official. Within just three weeks, we’ve gotten 25 sponsors on board for the Spätschicht X-Mas Party and have reached our crowdfunding goal!


Everyone in the Vertical Media team is getting excited and is hard at work to make 13 of December a night to remember with all sorts of surprises and goodies ready for party goers. We’ll be taking over the famous Kreuzberg club Ritter Butzke for a night, complete with revelry, drinking and dancing.

A shout out to Sponsorpay and our other sponsors so far

It looks like our friends in the tech and startup scene are just excited about the Spätschicht X-Mas party as we are. So far we have 25 sponsors on board, making the crowdfunding project a raging success. Now we can start the countdown to the party! A special mention to the people at value-exchange advertising platform Sponsorpay for buying tickets for their whole team to celebrate.

And the list of party sponsors is growing and growing: On 13 December, we will be partying with PaymillFoundervisionADindexAdspertAngermannAll you needCMS Hasche SigleFound FairGebel Consultinghub:rauminternet4YOUleanovateMashup CommunicationsPoint Nine CapitalRhenusSeed-FactoryTeam Europe and WilmerHale.

Just in! We’re extending the crowdfunding project until 11 December 2012

Because of the many requests and because a party is only fun when it’s full to the brim, we’ve decided to extend the crowdfunding project until the 11th of December.  So if you’re kicking yourself for not buying your tickets yet, you still have a chance to join the 600 other party people from the internet and tech scene. Check out the party packages from the freshly launched Berlin Crowd website. And don’t forget, the morning after the event, our friends at Axel Springer will be hosting a hangover breakfast for all party guests. It’ll be held in the exclusive Journalisten Club on the 19th floor of the Axel Spring House…It’s the perfect cure for sore heads.

What’s better than a party? A party with SURPRISES of course..

Thought that unlimited drinks, electro tunes and a cover band getting the crowd on their feet and dancing the night away in Ritter Butzke was as good as it could get? Think again. The wonderful events team at Vertical Media have been working overtime to organise a host of awesome surprises to keep the Spätschicht X-Mas Special goers on their toes. And not only that, they’ve also been hard at work transforming Ritter Butzke into a magical winter wonderland with endless Christmas specials to give away and even some confetti canons. There’ll be something for everyone there, including a Glühwein lounge run by Wine in Black, delicious hot snacks to be served at midnight, lovely Christmas flower decorations from BloomyDays and glitter makeup, goody bags filled to the brim and excellent giveaways.

What giveaways, you ask? Without revealing too much, let’s just say we’re catering for a range of tastes and desires with the gifts we’ve organised. A little birdy told the VentureVillage team that there will be gadgets from that would make any techie weak at the knees, O2 World is on board with some sports giveaways and presents from Project OonaLush and Nelou are sure to be a hit amongst the ladies.
