Long day, well organized and timed, more than helpful and interesting.” ~ Mattia Nicelli, Independent Consultant

The program has satisfied all content needs for companies interested in updates from the EU/EEA/CIS and Balkan regions.

Some of the panel discussions have created many new ideas that have to be developed, or have to be discussed further. Thus, are creating a series of Mini Meetups that will feature only one panel discussion per edition and allow the participants to engage even deeper into the conversation.

After receiving positive feedback and engaging into organizational discussions, Zoltán Tűndik, Co-Founder and Head of Business at Hipther Agency commented: “We are thrilled to see that our regional meetups are helping the industry engage in forward thinking conversations and are not as tiring as a large conference would be. With such occasions, we can keep the momentum going by also maintaining the quality of the content. During the two Q1 Meetups (Americas + Europe), we had a total of 3000 participants and over 17k viewers on YouTube. We are complementing the Meetup offering by the launch of the Mini Meetup series which will take place monthly and have only one panel discussion that allows participants to engage in the discussion themselves.

Here are some important dates to keep in mind:
