The Next Web – Stepping it up!
Last week I visited Amsterdam for one of the biggest tech events in Europe: The Next Web conference. Together with around 17.500 inspiring founders, investors, tech leaders and many other awesome ecosystem players from all over Europe I spent two days exploring the technologies of tomorrow on the industrial piers of Amsterdam. Here below I will share some highlights and insights from this not-to-miss event!
Human robots, Kristian Nairn aka Hodor from Game of Thrones at eToro’s booth, dinner with Larry Sanger co-founder of Wikipedia, innovator and tech guru Guy Kawasaki opening the main stage, CEO of Booking.com talking about the future of tech in Europe, Adobe ai facial recogniztion tool predicting my coffee order, Porsche ferris wheel overlooking the city, hundreds of startups from Europe & US showcasing technologies of tomorrow, inspiring talks, roundtables and workshops in 8 different quirky and cool venues. Lots of drinks, beers, delicious foods and of course a lot of valuable networking.
