Techsylvania’s story begins in 2014, when Cluj-Napoca, a city with a well established local IT scene, was transformed into the hottest point of innovation and technological development in Eastern Europe. Extremely well-positioned in Europe and relatively close to 5 country capitals – Belgrade, Budapest, Sofia, Kiev and Bucharest – the local IT ecosystem needed a gathering place for the region’s foremost creatives, technologists and innovators, where in-person inspiration was passed on, ideas and knowledge would be shared, projects and collaborations got started. Six years ago, 380 attendees joined the 1-day conference, with well-known national and international speakers and the 24-hour hackathon on connected and wearable devices.
In 2015, the leading technology event in Eastern Europe almost doubled its audience and grew to a 4-day event, with 40 speakers from USA, China, Portugal, Germany, UK, France and Germany. More than 1300 attendees joined Techsylvania in 2016, while in 2017 the conference gathered over 1,500 people. 2018 saw more than 2,200 attendees who benefited from high-quality information delivered by worldwide experts in the IT&C industry, developers, IT executives, leading companies and entrepreneurs. In 2019, the event focused on deep tech, inviting technology pioneers to debate on the convergence of Frontier Hardware, AI, Blockchain, IoT, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.
