TechChill Baltics on February 13 in Riga

The most significant technology event of the Baltic region begins in February 13 in Riga, Latvia. New tech start-ups, first class investors and experienced professionals meet at TechChill Baltics 2014 conference to discuss how to market a product, covering sales, marketing and PR topics.

TechChill Baltics is a practical day, topped with chilling out and spending a productive time with Baltic and European start-ups, VCs and experienced game-changers to learn, share and make contacts that definitely mean their business. Rocking the Riga walls for the third time, the conference has become an important event in the technology world, letting inspirational presentations be told and remembered – all of them in one place and all of them fully equipped with a technological vibe.

This time the conference plays with words, style and image. In other words, it outlines the strategies to reach the market – agenda foresees media, marketing and PR discussions by influential speakers, along with stories by well-known tech start-ups that are willing to spread their precious knowledge to likeminded colleagues. Collette Ballou (Ballou PR), Shira Abel (Hunter&Bard), Mike Butcher (TechCrunch), and Piers Ridyard (Nifty Drive) are some to electrify the Palladium stage and multiply an assortment of ideas that may potentially promote your area of expertise.

TechChill Baltics 2014 also invites new IT and tech companies to enter the Pitch competition and draw attention of both investors and future supporters. TechChill is proud to applaud for the success of Infogram and BliuBliu – our past ‘pitchers’ – to note how valuable it is to be cooled off by a top-notch VC jury.  The deadline for the application is February 3.
