Shaping the Future

September 22-23, 2020

EEST 1pm-11pm | CEST 12pm-10pm I EDT 6am-4pm

EXCLUSIVELY ONLINE

Welcome to Techsylvania: Beyond Borders!

What’s next? This has always been on our minds when creating each edition of Techsylvania. The next in tech, the next in business, the next in the social contexts that determine us to bring to life the best ideas and innovations. 

The challenging times we are living now have transformed our contemplative what’s next into a vital one. We need to gather our forces, in search of knowledge and tactical foresight and determine the next in technology & business, considering the current world state. 

 We’re always up for new challenges so reframing our event into a virtual one will be an exciting exercise. With this in mind, we announce the 2020 edition of Techsylvania as a virtual edition and we’re optimistic about all the exciting connections that can grow within this event, as now we can go beyond all borders.

The tech movement is going online.

Be part of tomorrow.

We have the power to discover, learn, celebrate and shape the future. Together.
