The Next Web, May 18-19, Amsterdam, Netherlands
If you somehow avoided The Next Web earlier, then you definitely should visit it, at least once in your career. Even though the event isn’t the best place to network, there is a lot to take away from these two days in the heart of Holland. Not only is the event extremely well organized, but there also are a lot of relevant speakers to check out and the tech exhibition to every taste.
