Theatre evening with M Computers
Last year was the first year of the theatre with M Computers with business partners from Prague and its surroundings. Unfortunately, this traditional event could not take place in the Brno variation in 2020 due to the epidemiological situation, but this year we managed to make this unique experience happen both in Prague and Brno.

The Brno event of the theatre with business partners took place at the Brno Municipal Theatre.
