Ultimate events guide: best CEE conferences to attend in 2023

While North American, European, and Asian tech markets are still acting quite independently and anchored in their historical hubs, Central and Eastern Europe remained “terra incognita” on the global map. More than 2 million talents, first offices, and R&D centers of up to 70 unicorns and around $44 billion in export.

CEE startups are initially focusing on international markets. Product companies are included in global industry rankings. Outsourcing companies work with clients from all over the world. At the same time, there is a very limited amount of available verified and regularized information on the CEE tech scene in English. In this text, AIN.Capital is committed to filling the gap with tech events in the CEE region.

AIN.Capital has selected the most important and largest IT events in Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Finland that will be held in 2023. Visiting these events will introduce you to the CEE technology scene, will help you find employees, clients, startups, investors, press coverage, useful acquaintances, and much more.
