If you’re based in the US but haven’t been to Slush, you’ve been missing out and it’s about time. Slush has grown to 20,000 attendees with 2,000 startups and over 1,100 investors from 110 countries. Described by many as “Burning Man meets TED”, it’s something you just have to see for yourself. (Nov 30–Dec 1, Helsinki, Finland)

People joining include founders of Spotify, Skype, Supercell, Unity, Stack Overflow, and some of the key VCs such as DFJ, Accel, DST, Index and KPCB.

Because usually there’s no direct flight, the folks at Slush put one together. There’ll be a brand new Airbus A350 hot off the production line making its maiden voyage to Helsinki from San Francisco with people like Steve Jurvetson, Arielle Zuckerberg and Dave McClure on board.
