DIGITAL FRIENDS DINNER HAS PRESENTED MAGNETICA NIGHT - A great experience of food, drinks, audio and the unique Finnish way of life

Stefan Heilmann, Kayvan Nikjou, Risto Kuulasmaa and Simona Nickman have invited their guests to a DFD event like it has never been before.



THE MORE, THE MERRIER. The end of 2018 was again celebrated with a great event in Helsinki, alongside Slush. Together with old DFD friends Kayvan Nikjou and Risto Kuulasmaa as well as DFD newbie Simona Nickman, Stefan Heilmann has  hosted the 43rd DIGITAL FRIENDS DINNER in Helsinki on December 5th 2018, the closing night of Slush. Slush has proven to be the perfect setting for the DFD series as it is one of the biggest and the world's leading startup event. 20,000 tech heads will travel to Finland for inspiration, innovation and to experience the great Scandinavian spirit.

The theme of this special event: "DIGITAL FRIENDS DINNER presents Magnetica Night". Magnetica is Kayvan Nikjou's, Risto Kuulasmaa's and Simona Nickman's new premium agency, located in Amsterdam. Together with further high-class sponsoring partners (Endel, Rémy Martin, The Helsinki Distilling Company and Playhouse Helsinki) the Magnetica team and Stefan Heilmann has organized a DFD night like no one has ever seen before. The guests will, of course, were treated with fantastic food, cool drinks and a spectacular group of people, but but during the whole evening some surprises were waiting for all of them.

As usual: The DIGITAL FRIENDS DINNER event was by invitation only and the event was fully booked. Apologies to all the people who could not attend this time, but stay tunes as there are many events to come in 2019; among them Paris, Berlin and Moscow.
