The presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images displayed for 20 seconds each, whilst the presenter talks you through it. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things interesting. It forces people to reduce, to clear their minds and think about what is relevant.
PechaKucha is a more personalised Q&A – The casual atmosphere of the room makes it easy to drop all formal barriers and socialize naturally. You can speak to any presenter during the Beer Breaks and say: “That was fantastic, I love what you do!” – and start a conversation from there.
PechaKucha drags you out from behind your computer into a live situation with atmosphere, energy and real human interaction.

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring people worldwide. It draws its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”.

Anyone can speak – this is the beauty of PechaKucha. The key to a great presentation is to talk about something you love. Most people use PechaKucha to showcase their latest creative projects. All the presenters share their passion and either show their prized collections, share photos, unravel their dream manuscript, or simply show us what gets them out of bed in the morning. So speak, or forever hold your peace.
PechaKucha is presented in a specific 20×20 format. This means that 20 of your slides are shown. Each slide is on an automatic timer and is shown for 20 seconds and then automatically phases into the next slide. This way you will speak for 6 minutes 40 seconds. If you are going to show a movie, do a dance, recite a poem or just do what you do best, make sure it fits into our 6 minute 40 second format (that’s 20 slides X 20 seconds)
