I felt placing the halls in several different locations was absolutely brilliant - much better than spending every day in the same building. It was great to meet people on the streets with their badges - it made the whole event feel like a festival.
All around excellent event! Every lecture I attended was brilliant. Furthermore, the organizers of WebExpo were incredibly positive and always had a smile on their faces.
Terrific conference! I never once had the feeling that things weren’t running smoothly.
Our decision to use different venues in Prague’s Old Town was met with praise from both speakers and attendees last year. That’s why we’ve decided to use the same setup again for WebExpo 2015! This year’s venues are even closer together to make getting from one presentation to another a breeze.
