Why attend Innowave Summit 2019?

For two days the Palace of Culture and Sports will transform into the “Mekka” of digital and business innovations. Again, this year Innowave Summit will not be breaking faith with its reputation of the most significant high tech and business conference in Southeastern Europe. The conference will be based on the same old principles, existing from the first edition and namely quality and thorough communication, selected and synthesized information and successful networking.


About the event in short…

During the conference you will have the opportunity to meet around 5000 attendees, among which will be managers, business owners, investors and entrepreneurs from around the world. Innowave Summit will present different options for communication and learning. There will be a Business Hall where attendees will learn and be part of a discussion about business development, marketing, tourism, customer service, investment, business strategies, e-commerce and many more. For the “tech nerds” there will be an Innovation Hall, which will introduce topics such as digital innovations, AI, blockchain, audio branding, VR, startup development, financing and more. Both halls will be represented by world-known speakers with years long experience and expertise in different sectors.

One of the most intriguing aspects of the event is the 1600 sq.m EXPO Zone where you will find over 120 Bulgarian and international tech companies and startups. They will present the most wanted innovations in almost every business sphere. In the EXPO Zone you will meet potential clients, sponsors and investors from the UK, Germany and Bulgaria.
