ICT Spring 2021: The Largest Physical Event Of The Year Kept All Its Promises
On September 14 and 15, at the Europe Convention Center Luxembourg, in the heart of Europe, a new edition of the global tech conference ICT Spring was held. Organized by Farvest, this two-day event composed of keynotes, roundtables, meetings, and networking allowed experts, managers, start-ups, and investors to meet and discuss topical issues and future trends in various sectors: ranging from FinTech to Space, including Cybersecurity, the digitalization of services, the Supply Chain and the development of the startups’ ecosystem at the international scale.
With 2.200+ people registered for this 2021 edition, 2350+ bilateral contacts made, 51 countries represented, 400+ meetings booked and 6000+ messages exchanged, ICT Spring kept all its promises.
Being the unmissable event since 2010 and supported by the Luxembourg government as well as an array of companies committed to the future of the tech world and of our society, ICT Spring, was the main event of the Digital ICT Week organized last September 13 to 17 by the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce and Enterprise Europe Network.
As a consequence of the current health situation, ICT Spring took place in a hybrid format, with the possibility for attendees to join either on-site or either to follow the conferences broadcasted live on a dedicated platform. Two intense days during which more than 220 high-level international speakers shared their expertise on major tech trends, their impact on society and the working world. In addition, more than 55 exhibitors met and exchanged with the 2021 springers while featuring their products and services in the exhibition hall.
True to its commitments and objectives, ICT Spring 2021 has encouraged emulation and networking between business leaders, decision-makers, start-ups, researchers, and VCs. The participants were pleased to exchange face-to-face after months of a health crisis that prevented such meetings from being held, a real “first” for the country since March 2020. To offer a 360 event experience to its digital attendees, a networking platform was also implemented -allowing attendees to participate in the matchmaking and targeted networking sessions- through the use of an internal application, generating more than 1500 meetings over the 2 days.
For its inauguration, the Mastermind Summit & Competition offered a brand new conference dedicated to entrepreneurs, VCs, and startups. Featuring the best international start-ups in the tech world, Mastermind Competition rewarded 3 start-ups, at the forefront of innovation, active in Deeptech, Fintech, and NewSpace. The winners of this first edition are: FIN-PAY from Australia (FinTech), Encapsulate from Canada (DeepTech), and Pale Blue from Japan (NewSpace).
