Oh captain. My captain. Table Captain.
Once a year the most influential executives gather at the Bits & Pretzels Oktoberfest tables. Every table at the grand finale is hosted by a Table Captain and all attendees can choose one of those handpicked CEOs, editors-in-chief or investors before the event even starts. Through that we make sure that everyone gets the most out of Bits & Pretzels and enjoys the best networking experience in a relaxed atmosphere.
