Tech startup’s 2014 guide to events in Europe and MENA

tech-event-guide-2014Despite their amazing growth in number, which complicates the process of selecting the best and most useful to attend, tech events and conferences matter now more than ever for almost all startups and tech people around the world. It is not only about networking and brainstorming, but also for the chances of letting more people (and the press, of course) know about your brilliant business across diverse markets. Webrazzi has been on both sides of the fence, attending, sponsoring and covering major events in Europe including LeWeb, NOAH, DLD, WebSummit, TechCrunch Distrupt Europe as well as organizing 6 of its own.

The beginning of each year therefore necessitates a thorough study of upcoming events and making tough choices accordingly. Now we have done our homework and selected our shortlist, we thought it would be a good idea to share the (almost) complete list of technology and startup events to be held in Europe and MENA (and some basics from the US) with our readers too. Check the list below and let us know any details we might have omitted. See you there!
