WEBIT.FESTIVAL, 26 & 27 JUNE IN SOFIA, BULGARIA
This is more a gathering of government officials, EU policymakers and corporate executives than it is a typical startup/tech event. But Webit.Festival is projected to draw 7,000 people from 100 countries, all people who can influence Europe’s futurre digital course. But at the heart of Webit.Festival is Bulgaria’s chance to shine during its presidency of the European Union. And promote itself as an emerging innovation center.
Make no mistake … this is a big deal. True, Elon and Zuck won’t be here. But Mariya Gabriel, the European Commission’s commissioner for the Digital Economy and Society will be one of the 70-plus speakers, along some big corporate names including Andrew Tsao, managing director of Silicon Valley Bank and Maurice Lévy, the head of Publicis Group.
Somewhere in the middle of all this, the 200 “most promising” startups are scheduled to be honored. And this is all part of EU Digital and Innovation Week, the flagship event of the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union
Tickets start at 190 euros, and you can get them here.
