Tech Open Air, Europe’s leading interdisciplinary technology festival, starts today. A blend of conference and festival at once. At TOA our mission is to connect, grow and inspire the human spirit through interdisciplinary knowledge exchange and collaboration. Now in it’s fifth year, the festival takes place over three days with 120 speakers and 175 satellite events, enabling attendees to connect and learn with industry experts in Europe’s startup capital, Berlin. Attendees will experience inspirational storytelling, interactive forums, art installations and live music at a beautiful riverside location and across town.
Berlin is a special place to be right now. When Kickstarter CEO Yancey Strickler took to the stage at TOA16 he echoed the thoughts of the changemakers in attendance when he said that “the gravitational force of technology and innovation will shift squarely to Berlin”. He’s right, this city is brimming with talent, creativity and opportunity just waiting to be harnessed. TOA is where this powerful mix of talent and opportunity comes together to connect, grow and be inspired. Join us in Europe’s startup capital and place yourself squarely at the intersection of tech, music, art, and science.
