Like last year, the conference days will take place in the unique Funkhaus Berlin on the Spree bank. TOA founder Niko Woischnik states in a press release:

“We have certainly taken one of our biggest development leaps forward with TOA this year which is not least thanks to our World Tour stops in L.A., Tokyo and Austin.I am very happy to say that our Berlin edition in 2017 will not lag behind in diversity and internationality among speakers and participants. Hereby, we are taking a further step in our vision to create a global platform for interdisciplinary technology exchange. Our new B2B formats as well as the larger exhibition space and our new format for small and middle sized companies “Family Affairs”, which will make its debut this year, will contribute towards this progress.”

About Tech Open Air

Within the past five years, the festival grew from being a crowdfunded festival to international grandeur. For its first investment round, it managed to win over big names like the founders of SoundCloud, Native Instruments, Hello Fresh, Zalando, OneFootball or Berlin startup veterans like Christophe Maire (Atlantic Labs) and Project A.
