Second edition of the best small digital conference in the region will be held on 27 and 28 of September in Labin. During those two days, the city of Labin transfers to the IT capital of the region. First edition of this Conference has set high standards. Already in the first year, Digital brought names like Dogstudio and Build in Amsterdam, as well as Vitaly Friedman.

This year’s Conference Programme

Even though the bar was set very high last year, things are brought to an even higher level this year. Namely, the organizers have announced big names worldwide, some of the greatest world companies, rewarded web agencies and leading Croatian IT companies.

Conference Programme is split on two days. The first day is reserved for acquiring new knowledge through workshops, which will be led by top Croatian and international experts.

The main part of the Programme takes place on the second day of the Conference, and participants have the right to hear some of the leading names worldwide and get acquainted with new trends in development and web design. Participants can expect additional interactive contents, and the evening is reserved for mingling and good fun on after-parties.

Combination of learning and fun

Last year’s participant Daan Klaver (creative director, Build in Amsterdam) described the Conference well, in three words:

“Good food, nice people and excellent speeches”.

Except excellent speakers, it is just that atmosphere what marks the Conference, along with the unique ambience of picturesque Labin and beautiful Rabac. One of the impressionable things about the Conference are certainly the locations; the workshops are for instance held in the impressive rooms of the City Library, and the main programme is held at the Sports Centre “Franko Mileta”.

The Conference is, however, not lacking good fun – other than the welcome party on the first day, the participants can look forward to a real little treat – the party in Lanterna, which is a must.

On the Conference

The idea of organizing the first digital conference in this area was initiated by a software
& IT company from Labin, Lloyds Design, which is made of a team of approx. 15 young experts – programmers, developers and designers; the idea was supported by many entrepreneurs from Labin, as well as the local authorities.
