Agency at Night 2024

DEPT® office Rotterdam

15 March

17:00 – 23:00 CET

Take a peek behind the curtain and experience the creativity and tech that often remains hidden in the shadows. Projects boast stories far richer than the final product you see online and around you. We’re no strangers to the spotlight, but let’s face it: the real magic happens behind the scenes. 

During the first edition of Agency at Night, we’re breaking down the walls, unveiling the dedication, setbacks, imperfections, and learning curves behind our projects – an evening where Work In Progress shines the brightest!
