Likewise use this knowledge to improve life for the people in Southeast Europe, through education, competition, and networking. Spark.me in 2018 has gathered more than 500 attendees from 28 countries.
This year the event took a place in beautiful Porto Montenegro, a Mediterranean famous luxury yacht marina, located in the central part of Boka Bay in Tivat City. The conference has brought up stories from the front lines of disruptive technological solutions, innovative business models, engaging marketing strategies, and world-changing initiatives. All this was presented by some of the world’s most influential thinkers and brands. Their goal is not to become the biggest conference, with the greatest number of speakers and attendees.

When organizing their annual conferences, they are paying attention to every single detail, as all speakers are carefully picked and very well pampered.
