Web2day festival comes back in 2021!

For the past 11 years, La Cantine has been helping to develop the digital ecosystem of Nantes and its surrounding areas. In this context, we are delighted to organise and present Web2day, the festival dedicated to innovation and innovators. Since the first edition, in June 2009, we have been committed to offering you an event that is increasingly ambitious every year. However, it seems to us we are close to maximum capacity for the current format (we exceeded the 11,500 participant threshold this year). We have, therefore, reached a turning point, where we can choose from:

– Building upon what we have learned, and continuing to apply a formula that works (after all, coffee always tastes better in our own familiar cup)
– Stepping outside our comfort zone and offering something new
– Ditching everything and moving to Knokke-le-Zoute.

Against all the odds, we have chosen option… 2. For some time now, we have been looking at ways to revitalise the event and the overall experience, and to offer you something stronger and even more unique. To achieve this, we need to test some hypotheses, take an overview, and develop ambitions in accordance with the values of the association, and this includes departing from our annual preparation routine. That is why the next Web2day will be held in 2021. We will, of course, keep you informed about our progress. Between now and 2021, a lot will be happening in La Cantine, in the heart of the Ile de Nantes. 2020 will be largely taken up by a move, the preparation of a brand new annual programme of more than 150 events and a host of other projects.
