This year the meetups, the same as the IT Arena speakers lineup, are traditionally divided into topic groups: business, product, and technology, so you can choose the most interesting for you. The format of meetups was created a few years ago for the IT Arena attendees who come from other cities to get acquainted with Lviv. In 2021, IT Arena will not come back entirely offline, but the meetups give an excellent opportunity to gather people offline in a more cozy atmosphere abiding by all Covid-19 safety recommendations.
