The-Party is a Lan Event that takes place at Beursgebouw Eindhoven every year. LAN stands for Local Area Network, which means that all participants will be on the same network during the event. Participants bring their own UTP cables and plug these into one of the very fast switches The-Party offers. That way they’ll be able to play lag-free gaming sessions with other people.

No, you can’t. There are several reasons for this; the most important one being a lack of space and power usage.
The-Party can easily be reached by public transport. Beursgebouw Eindhoven is within walking distance from Eindhoven Central Station, which makes it convenient for you to use either the bus or the train. Unfortunately it’s a little more difficult to reach the building by car. For more information, please visit our Location page. Here you can also find parking information

We’re doing our absolute best to make sure nothing gets stolen. Unfortunately there are always people with different intentions than having fun, which is why it’s important that everyone keeps an eye on their own hardware. A good start is to order a lock to protect your monitor or laptop.
