Reflect 2020, the most open(minded) festival of the year

Reflect is a future casting festival where Europe & the Middle East connect, students boost their career opportunities, startups find their investors, businesses meet their clients, and new friendships are formed. For the third edition of the festival, founders Stylianos Lambrou, Dusan Duffek and Andria Lambrou decided to boost meeting opportunities at Reflect and partnered with an event app startup ImpromptMe to get the most out of the Reflect experience. What does it mean for you?

 

All important information under one roof 

Environmental sustainability is the future. At Reflect, we don’t want to only support and promote eco-responsible businesses, we want to lead by example! Naturally, we are going paperless, so the whole program will be available solely through the event app. You can download it in advance via App Store or Google Play. Prior to the event you will receive a personalized e-mail with a unique code and you’ll be able to make your profile, set up meetups, create your Reflect agenda, check all attendees, discover the venue map, and you’ll find some special customised surprises 🙂

 

 

Meet your stars 

This year, you can set up one-on-one meetings not only with all the attendees, but with our innovative speakers as well! This list of confirmed speakers is continuously growing: meet the latest additions.

As an expert on the human mind, he wrote the book “ Zombies in Western Culture: A 21st Century crisis”  where he’s discussing the zombie model in pop culture and how it reflects a crisis in modern Western culture. Are we becoming mindless, ugly, homeless creatures stuck in a hopeless cycle?
