In case you decide to extend your Oktoberfest experience outside of the Bits & Pretzels Founders Festival,
here are 6 Tips for doing business at the Oktoberfest

1. Security first:

Oktoberfest now requires entrance through designated checkpoints, with bags larger than 20 cm x 15 cm x 10 cm not allowed for safety reasons.

2. Eat, Don't Just Drink:

Oktoberfest beer is strong. Avoid awkward moments by pairing your beer with a hearty meal.

3. Travel Light:

Keep your belongings minimal and damage-proof. Consider relying on your smartphone instead of bringing a laptop.

4. Smart

A plastic bag can be handy to keep your jacket or sweater clean from unexpected spills.

5. Know
Your Limits

Oktoberfest parties continue late into the night. Enjoy, but remember,
maintaining your professional demeanor is essential.

6. Dress Comfortably:

You don't need traditional Bavarian garb to fit in at Oktoberfest. Feel free to wear what makes you comfortable.
