Ultimate events guide 2024: top tech conferences to attend in CEE

European startup market is one of the leading in the world which raised, despite the global decline, €53.4 billion in 2023 according to Pitchbook’s report. However, Central and Eastern Europe still remains mostly an unacknowledged region, despite its constant growth and successes. 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.

We have 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 2024. 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.
