On my way to the Festival Summit at the Cumberland

After a cool 3H 15 trip from Paris Gare du Nord to new St Pancras station, a quick cab took me in less than 10 minutes to the hotel (less than the waiting for a cab at the station)
Arriving at the Cumberland reception I got worried when they told me I was staying in a "nice room in the business executive building" off one block...
Did not sound too engaging, or even convenient

Turns out the rooms ARE nice in fact (vast, modern design, spacious...)
























On my way to a quick snack (after some email checking of course) I got lucky and met Waco Hoover, the organizer of the summit: perfect timing.

We are a partner of the Festival Summit and I needed to hand the leaflets that will go in the participants bags tomorrow.

Let me show you the leaflet:
