VIAfest - F*ckUp Night VOL. 3!

F*ckUp Nights is a global movement where stories of failed businesses and projects are told, questioned and celebrated. It started in 2012 in Mexico City and we're bringing it to Victoria.

3 "f*ckuppers" will have 6 minutes each to tell their story and up to 10 minutes for Q&A. What was the project? What went wrong? What did they learn? What would they do differently? 

This F*ckUp Night is a part of the Experience Tectoria agenda and is sponsored by the Roy Group! 19+ event, no minors.

  • Al Smith (TicTalking)
  • Margo Long (Incite Marketing)
