The first speakers of the 2018 edition of iCEE.fest have been announced, also hinting at new topics of interest that will make it on the 6 stages of the festival.

Over 130 major digital &tech companies will send their experts in Bucharest, for 2 days of business, know how sharing and debate about the many ways technology is no longer an industry, but together with the tools of the internet and the digital advances, one of the main drivers of change and innovation.

Some of the companies lined up are Facebook, Google, YouTube, LinkedIn, CNN, Netflix, Financial Times, Kiip, Techstars, Holition, Meta AR, Ryan Air, Global Data, Social Chain, Fortune 500, The Digital Insurer, Rethink IoT, Trend Watching, BBH London, Unruly and many others.

Acknowledged professionals and incumbent players, or newcomers in business, startups and entrepreneurs who shift the traditional business models, but also enablers who facilitate the understanding of the changing world, will meet again, in Bucharest, June 14-15.

Just as usual, the iCEE.fest will feature diverse content tracks, under the vibe of the « UPGRADE to your best version » concept – launched last year, as a metaphor of the need of digital specialists and business leaders to be connected to all the transformations led by tech and digital.

Next to the already familiar content pillars (creativity / viral campaigns, marketing and content technologies, e-commerce, e-health, virtual and augmented reality, entrepreneurship, startups and investments), the satellite-event dedicated to fintech, one of the previous edition’s prodigy tracks, expands its coverage with new topics such as insurtech, blockchain and cryptocurrencies.

Good news! We have also released hundreds of presentations from previous editions of our multi-stage, multi-sessions event, which are now available, free of charge, on iCEE.academy.

As a first, the conversation on agritech (which studies the impact of technology in agriculture) will kick off this year, whilst the iCEE.health project (which studies the impact of technology in medicine) grows its footprint with more speakers and a stronger content proposal.

The start of the campaign for the current iCEE.fest edition pins another important moment for those who have never attended the festival: all the presentations featured in the iCEE.academy platform are now available free of charge, the access to the archive of the event being unconditional until end of June when the new ones will be uploaded.

ICEEfest will be held on June 14-15 at the Grand Cinema & More in Bucharest and is organized by ThinkDigital România, powered by Orange and with the international support of IAB Europe.
