The biggest tech festival of Europe is coming again! TNW Conference is more than just an ordinary event.
Like TNW indicates on their own website: “The whole setup of TNW Europe is focused on bringing the right people together in order to do business. Facilitating business meetings, hosting round table sessions, matchmaking and a touch of instinct are all key ingredients to a positive ROI. If you are looking to develop high quality leads, build long lasting relationships, and/or supercharge brand awareness, then this is the business conference for you.”
This year, TNW will take place on the 24th and 25th in Amsterdam, and Signaturit is also participating in this 13th edition! In this post we provide you with more information about the TNW conference and our participation.

What is TNW?
TNW - The Next Web - is Europe's main technology event that this year will take place for the 13th time already..
YOUTUBE VIDEO - TNW AFTERMOVIE 2017
As mentioned in the aftermovie, the purpose of TNW is to move the world forward with technology. But it’s not the technology that’s going to change, it’s the people that are going to drive that change. That is why TNW wants to bring entrepreneurs, CEOs, marketers and developers together to make that possible.
The reviews on former editions of TNW are praiseful. BBC News said: “This was a great show, the production was fit for tech superstars”. And VICE: “It was both terrifyingly interesting and interestingly terrifying”.
These reviews show that TNW organizers are doing a great job in gathering the right people that will move the world forward with technology. Actually, they have already been awarded at the EuBea Festival in 2016 as the best European Event in the ‘Best Conference/Congress’ category.
The expectations of this years' edition in numbers:
