If you want to get an idea of what to expect, watch the video of LIICT 2016. The color that year was purple, and we had some different stops, but you’ll get an idea of what to expect when you join us for LIICT.

Spread the word about how much fun LIICT is, on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Feel free to invite others to register and attend.
