Data is NOT the new gold – unless it is shared from the silos to drive business decision. Events such as DATA festival is playing a key role in raising the awareness about Data and helping to bring a cultural shift in the industry. Great event, awesome talks and cool organisation!​

Speaker of the DATA festival #online

For us, this was a great experience! We were particularly pleased with the good organization and the fact that the online format made it easy to integrate the event into our daily work routine. As a speaker you can get in touch with other conference participants who are working on similar projects. We really benefited from the open and creative exchange culture of the DATA festival.
In this sense, we are very much looking forward to the next DATA festival. All the more so when it takes place ‚face-to-face‘ and on site again!
