What's new for 2017
A new age of tech events has begun.
When 10,000 tech leaders descended on Amsterdam to share ideas and business cards in a setting that felt more like a Coachella for co-founders and coders than a conference, we knew that something special had just begun.
Next year we’re going to redefine the conference experience all over again. In May 2017, 15,000 entrepreneurs, developers, marketing managers, CEOs and policymakers will visit Europe's leading tech festival. They're all looking to stay on top of the latest trends, meet their next client or partner, and connect with other people interested in the future of technology, innovation, marketing and imagination.
An incredible lineup of speakers, and the set up and production of the conference was absolutely mind-blowing. I even paused mid-talk to applaud them because this event was off the charts.
The year was 2006...
A lot has changed in 11 years. Back in 2006, TNW Co-founders Boris & Patrick were celebrating being able to find 300 technology and internet enthusiasts to attend the first ever edition of The Next Web Conference.
Now we're an unmissable fixture in the European tech scene, bringing together a week of side events and a 2-day conference consisting of 7 Stages of content, 400 game-changing exhibitors and 5000m2 of business floor – all built around our open-air food courts.
In good company
Industry-defining brands have helped make TNW Conference into what it is today. These are just a handful that have attended before.
