ELKO MeetUP 2018 (LIVE)

Live Broadcast from ELKO MeetUP 2018 ― a Regional IT Industry Partner Conference | 17 May, 2018
ELKO MeetUP 2018
A regional partner event to mark the 25th anniversary of ELKO, and to bring together the world's leading manufacturers, key resellers and other IT industry partners from the Baltics, CEE, CIS and Nordics.

The theme of the year: POWERED BY PEOPLE
This event is not about technology, it is about people. Technologies are powered by people – they were invented by people, and are used by people. But for people to keep moving, and developing they need to be “powered” too. This event is about the mutual exchange of power between people and technology.

The conference, workshops and expo held in Riga, Latvia was broadcasted live here at the ELKO website, and on the corporate Facebook account. Records of the main stage speeches and workshops available on ELKO YouTube account.
