Reacticon v2 will take place on the High Tech Campus (HTC) in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. To be exact, in building 1b. The city of Eindhoven has received fame because of it being home of Philips (the light-bulb company that has developed numerous technical appliances), while currently is known as being an IT hub in The Netherlands. HTC is home to well-known companies like Intel and IBM. And in upcoming decades, it will be famed for hosting Reacticon. Bam.
The conference will be hosted in the High Tech Campus (in the south of Eindhoven) while the diner+party that same evening and the hackathon will be hosted at the Deity office in the area of Strijp S (in the north of Eindhoven). We will arrange for some kind of transport in between these locations. Alternatively, a taxi will take about 15 minutes. Buses are a bit confusing, you can walk an hour as well. And we'll be constructive with car pooling.
Blue Collar Hotel has great burgers, but most other restaurants are in the center of Eindhoven. A good tip is to use the website thefork.com (the Dutch version is iens.nl): It lists good restaurants by popularity or price or whatever. To give you some good ideas anyway, here are some options:
Close to the event venue, there is the Van der Valk Hotel (about 30 min walk from the venue, or 5 min by car). Accomodation around this area is convenient if you are staying for the conference but not much else.
If you are joining the after-party as well and/or the hackathon the day after, staying in the north of Eindhoven might be a better option: Unfortunately, Blue Collar Hotel (which was actually also the venue for Reacticon v1) had budget options available but is almost booked full (ed: Sept 8th).
