The Tech Festival 

What we do

Our flagship event, Pirate Summit, brings together carefully curated seed-stage startups and investors. With RIOT we open up for tech enthusiasts interested in later staged innovations while keeping the laid back festival atmosphere and people focus that we are known for.

What it is about

The next wave of innovation and disruption will be all around us. All “things” will become smart – driven by artificial intelligence. This will have a huge impact on how we live, work, travel etc.

At RIOT you will get insights into the latest trends and experience new product innovations first hand. Next to that RIOT will provide excellent networking opportunities and #meaningfulconnections.

Who is coming

The Festival’s Expo area will feature 100 invite/application only startups from cutting edge technolgy.

RIOT will be attended by real entrepreneurs, corporate executives, investors and all those people, who celebrate technology like we do.
