GREAT TECH EVENTS YOU SHOULDN’T MISS IN BARCELONA
Participating in events is quite important for various reasons, which is why at Apiumhub we try to participate as much as we can to all sorts of tech events. From conferences to workshops & meetups, we always find great value in events related to our industry and services.
Why is it that important to attend tech events?
- Be part of your community — You obviously get to follow/know interesting people via social medias and online channels, and don’t get me wrong it’s very important. But let’s just say that most of the time true connections are created when you have face to face interactions, and what better place to meet and interact with influencers than conferences?
- Freshen up your mind — I think that it’s quite easy to say that listening to others’ point of view helps seeing things differently, we all have our ways but there’s always room for inspiration and new concepts. By the way, conferences are the perfect place to get up to date on new trends & technologies and learn from others.
What is so great about Barcelona?
The city of Barcelona has been for a long time now one of the most visited cities in Europe. But not only does the city attracts tourists coming on holidays, it also attracts many Business trips. Maybe it’s due to the fact that it’s almost always sunny, that it has amazing restaurants and that it’s a Tech Hub.
