About Bright Day

Main themes of the festival are: Smart Home, Future Mobility, Robots & Superhumans, Gaming, Future Jobs, Bright Kids and Future Food. The festival takes place this year in the Expo Haarlemmermeer: ​​a light location with a roof of 26,000 m2 of solar panels that fits perfectly with Bright Day.

“This year’s Bright Day is dominated by” the bright side of tech “, explains Bright editor-in-chief Erwin van der Zande. “We keep close to issues concerning privacy, addiction and security at Bright, but on Bright Day we want to celebrate the promise of tech. It will be one big party.”
