muCon Party - Wednesday 27th May

Attendees at Skills Matter Party

Did you enjoy the first day of muCon? It's party time now! Visit the Skills Matter booth during muCon for a Party Ticket (tickets are limited to 400 only - so grab one while they last!) to enjoy our Party at Codenode's {{SpaceBar}} and share your experience and impressions of muCon with other muCon attendees.

We will have our very own muCon double decker routemaster buses bringing you from the BDC (Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street) to CodeNode. Buses will be ready outside the BDC once the conference ends on Wednesday 27th May (straight after the last session at 6.15pm) to bring you to CodeNode!

If you prefer the good old London Underground, CodeNode is a five-minute walk from Moorgate Tube Station, which is just two stops from Angel (the closest station to the BDC, where muCon takes place), and it's served by the Northern Line.

You can come along from the conference or meet us at CodeNode for an evening of good music, games, food and drinks – a chance to share your ideas with each other in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. We look forward to having you with us!

And if you need some help finding your way home/to your hotel once the party's over, please visit the Transport for London's website which contains full information on how to move around in London.
