Exchange of experiences is essential for the success of business. A broad network of contacts is not only a chance to establish new partnerships or to find new customers, but also to share one’s doubts with others. Networking is also a source of mutual inspiration and education.

As part of the conference, we will ask the panelists to spare some of their time for young companies. Every participant will have an opportunity to meet our guests in person, ask questions and network.

THE CONFERENCE WILL ALSO INCLUDE:

  • Cafe Biznes zone (open throughout the conference, including meals)
  • Gazeta zone (where short videos and interviews will be made)
  • Prenumerata zone (possibility to subscribe)
  • Partner and Networking zone (partners will have a permanent zone with promotional materials and branding)
