MALTA'S DIGITAL BUSINESS EVENT OF THE YEAR
Date: 19-20 September 2017
Time: 09:00 - 17:00
Venue: Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Golden Sands
A networking event for the start-up community in the Mediterranean and surrounding regions. Topics include business foresight, investment, scaling strategies, organisational culture, and the impact of emerging technologies on established verticals such as finance, content and hospitality.
ZEST is a two-day event that presents an ideal platform for networking and showcasing disruptive tech innovations. ZEST is the place where great speakers deliver valuable content, in a fun and relaxed environment. The programme features talks, panels and workshops on technology, disruption and all things start-up.
Malta’s start-up conference, ZEST, will return this year with an even more exciting line-up of leading local and international speakers, wider international participation, and unprecedented networking opportunities. ZEST is the main gathering for tech start-ups based in Malta where technology disruption is central to the discussions. It also serves as an excellent opportunity to attract foreign players to experience the island.
This year’s edition, taking place on the 19 and 20 September at the Radisson Blu Golden Sands Resort and Spa, is expected to attract over 500 participants mainly CEO/founders, investors, talent, influencers and professionals. The event is unique in bringing together a cosmopolitan crowd of locals, expats and fly-ins, whilst offering the ideal setting for attendees to discover opportunities and build lasting relationships.
In contrast to the traditional business conference, ZEST adopts a very informal, no-nonsense format, where talks are short, yet sharp. Discussion topics will include business foresight, investment, scaling strategies, organisational culture, and the impact of emerging technologies on established verticals such as finance, content and hospitality.
A novelty this year is the introduction of satellite events targeting niche communities and giving more space for specialist discussion and networking to take place outside the main event. Efforts are also in place to grow the ZEST after party, which offers all delegates an ideal environment for informal social interaction and community engagement.
