As you'll see from the following report by organizer Adhiatma Gunawan, it was a stunning showing for PechaKucha Night in Surabaya Vol. 2.
The event was held on November 25, 2009 at Matchbox (Bigbox complex) Surabaya, a cafe complex with a capacity of 350. But PKN Surabaya has so many fans, and they exceeded our expectation -- we rocked Surabaya that night with more than 550 people coming to the venue. The ushers told us that it actually reached 600 people, but some of the audience went back home because the venue was overcrowded.
In the afternoon we had more than 10 local and national media in our press conference, and PKN Surabaya got very positive reviews in a few blogs and newspapers. At night, PKN Surabaya Vol. 2 started at 7:10 PM, and 9 outstanding presenters shared their ideas following the theme "I Love Indonesia," and it was totally awesome! Most of the audience stayed until the very end of the event, hypnotized by all the presentations.
We also tried something different. We had no MC, but some of PKN Surabaya Vol. 1 alumni were outstanding in taking up the role of the MC. One audience member said: "They are even much better than the real MC, because they have the PKN soul!"
The day after, we received a lot of compliments, most of them saying "we just cannot wait for upcoming the PKN Surabaya Vol. 3!"
