IT Arena is traditionally divided into three thematic streams and will be interesting not only for IT-people, but also for designers, PMs, investors, entrepreneurs, startuppers, top-managers, CEOs, and everyone interested in the latest innovations and trends in the IT world.
Our speakers are chosen by the recognized IT professionals from the leading Ukrainian IT companies, therefore, the lecture quality is exceptionally high. If you look at the cost of a mater-class with ONE of those speakers for your company – the all-in cost will end up being rather high. Lviv IT Arena guarantees way more recognized specialists for you to choose from, as well as the opportunity to communicate with them directly. The tickets prices are relatively low, if compared to the same level conferences in Europe or even in Ukraine. Also, our conference is famous for tasty lunches, good WiFi, productive networking, great after party in different places around the city, and other perks prepared by the event managers.
