Hybrid format

The world is changing, and so are we. In 2021, IT Arena took place in a mixed format, combining all the benefits of online and offline events. Whether you joined the conference online or in person, IT Arena delivered the best content, quality communication and matchmaking opportunities.

Online part

Last year’s virtual format of IT Arena was an attempt to gain a new interactive experience being in a few places at once quickly switching between speeches and tracks, communicating with fellow attendees via the event’s app, or in business matchmaking chats, asking speakers questions in one click, etc. In 2021, the first two days of the event will again take place on our flagship mobile and web platforms, with a few studios built specifically for speakers to ensure flawless viewer experience.

Immersive sessions

Participate in the event on the go: watch high-quality streaming content with engaging social features like live Q&As, polls and list of attendees in each session.

Attendee networking

Send direct messages or video call other attendees, create private and group chats, and participate in discussion of talks.

Easy navigation

Take part in giveaways, chat with attendees, and switch between four event’s tracks without making changes to your work schedule.

Two-screen experience

Choose the medium that works best for you. Watch talks on your laptop and use the mobile app to network with the fellow attendees. Or the other way around!

Partnership opportunities

Grow your partner network, meet investors or find new team members. Contact companies directly with a message or schedule 1:1 video calls.

B2B matchmaking

Connect with local and international companies, find vendors or partners via a private channel for Executive ticket holders

Offline part

The offline part of IT Arena 2021 will combine the experience accumulated during the previous years, trying to get back to the world’s map of tech events. This year, the conference will expand the number of offline events to be one step closer to its attendees with in-person networking. The third day of the event, which includes meetings and workshops in various locations in the central part of Lviv, will take place offline. The offline format will also include afterparties, organized in accordance with sanitary and safety requirements and with a limited number of attendees.
