The Tokyo based architecture firm Klein Dytham Architetcs (KDA) originally started Pecha Kucha Night in their nightclub “Supperclub”. After it proved to be a perfect recipe for a good night out and a great way of meeting new people, ideas, employees or jobs the evening was picked up all over the world. Pecha Kucha Nights are held already in 158 cities worldwide. Pecha Kucha Night in Beijing is founded and organized by Sebastian Linack, Florian Pucher, Miriam Deller and Alessandra Henderson.

The Japanese term "Pecha Kucha" roughly translates as chit-chat or noisy chatter. As a potent crossbreed between an elevator pitch and a slide show Pecha Kucha Night presents ten or more participants who show 20 slides for twenty seconds each. No more boring lectures, painful seminars or tiring presentations. Pecha Kucha Night offers the audience the experience of a dazzling range of speakers and images in the course of one evening. Breaks will be filled with drinks, music, images and of course: chit-chat.
