Dear London TechMeetups Member,

We are completely booked for the upcoming FinTech Drinks & Demo Night at Bloomberg so I wanted to ask you to update your RSVP status if you know you won’t be able to join us. The other important thing is that registration will be open only till 6.30 pm so make sure you are not late.

If we reach venue capacity, we won’t be able to guarantee entrance who arrive later.

We are thrilled to announce that Philips Hue just joined as sponsor for our upcoming hackathons inLondon and Berlin. They will bring great developer kits and help all developers play with lights! Maybe you can build something as cool as this:

Not to forget the other great sponsors who will prowide amazing prizes and support during the weekend: Amazon Kindle FireAmazon Web Services and Rightmove.
