About Pakcon

The Project A Knowledge Conference (PAKCon) is one of Europe’s most practical conferences.

In its sixth edition, PAKCon 2023 will again bring together founders, investors, thought leaders, digital experts, international media, and talents from across Europe for a one-day event packed with thought-provoking sessions, hands-on workshops, and plenty of networking opportunities.

This year's theme is The Obvious. Why dedicate an entire conference to such a modest, seemingly ordinary concept? Well, we’re glad you asked!
The crises we’re experiencing—globally and in our industry—were, in fact, predictable. That’s why we want PAKCon to highlight truths that are so obvious we simply ignore them. While the sessions will focus on diverse topics, they will share a common agenda that explores fundamental questions.

Join us to find the answers and get ready for a reality check.

What to expect

The on-stage sessions are the main attraction of a conference, and ours are designed to be both practical and inspirational. From investments to people, marketing to software engineering, product to sales, and data to brand, PAKCon features dozens of must-see keynotes, panels, fireside chats, and masterclasses focused on digital innovation, VC, and entrepreneurship.

Sessions run between 15 minutes to an hour, hosted by a renowned expert or an up-and-coming talent. Check out the program to learn more.
Are you looking for a dream job to take your career to the next level?
Are you a hiring manager or recruiter looking for insider tips?
That’s what the PAKCon Talent Corner is for!

Like in previous years, Project A’s Talent Acquisition team will host hundreds of applicants and colleagues, answering questions, discussing best practices, and exploring trends.

Check out all the activities here.

Apply for a PAKCon Volunteer job and get a free ticket, food and drinks, invaluable networking, and a chance to land a job.
If the sessions are the main attraction, the meetups are the cherry on top. Join exclusive, invite-only round tables, and exchange ideas in various meetups.

As a speaker, you’ll also have a chance to make the most of the Speakers’ Lounge.

There will also be lots of other opportunities to network spontaneously throughout the day: A few obvious examples are between sessions, around the food market, and at the after-party.
Partying is as meaningful as knowledge sharing.

As soon as the conference ends, the Cinema Foyer will transform into a temporary club, where all ticket holders are welcome to relax, grab a drink, and continue the conversation.

Don’t forget your dancing shoes!
