What are this year’s Must SEEs at ESNS?


Finally, ESNS has arrived! As a proud brand partner of See Tickets, we wish we could have all met in Groningen, with a drink or a dance… Luckily, bringing everything online means it gives you the perfect opportunity to check out every single interesting speaker or performance. To help you go through the programme, See Tickets’ Marketing Manager and long-time ESNS visitor Marcel Dekkers composed a shortlist of five must SEE sessions of the conference. Main topic: looking forward. After all, we’re all hoping on an exciting and hopefully fully packed ‘Summer of love’ in 2022. Check out these Must SEEs by See Tickets:
