“TechFest educates on latest technologies, latest marketing trends and brings together people from different professions and from abroad – which I think is crucial to create innovation.”

Dan Radu, Macromator @ Speaker TechFest Cluj 2017

“It’s very dynamic here at TechFest. You can feel that a lot of things are happening – I really enjoy being part of this experience.”

Stephane Demichelli, BRD @ Speaker TechFest 2017

“We believe in the potential of innovation and in creating tech platforms in this part of Europe and this can only happen if we transform our vision into reality. Besides that, we want to inspire the general public to adopt on a large scale the current technological solutions, some of them even generated locally.”
