Ϟ Unforgettable side events all over the city

What’s a business festival without legendary side events? We'll be taking over Tartu by hosting a variety of events all over the city – expect networking parties, empowering meetups, workshops, and a great time. This year may be different, but it won’t be any less memorable. Our afterparties are the place to be – quite literally. Just a couple of examples are Tartu’s first-ever parking lot party and a performance by prorapsuperstar Tommy Cash surrounded by a 270° video projection. We’re stepping up our game this year. You don’t want to miss it.

Ϟ A unique festival atmosphere

We believe the best deals and ideas come when you’re in a good mood, so in between the talks, workshops, and matchmaking, take some time off to enjoy the unique festival atmosphere. You won’t find it anywhere else.
