1. When and where will the INAT SUMMIT happen?
INAT Summit will happen in Belgrade, the capital city of Serbia on April 20-23. For those of MUNPlanet travelers who want to go on the Easter break, INAT Summit will be a perfect opportunity to take some extra days off.
2. How much is the fee for the conference?
The conference fees range between 40-135 EUR depending on the target group. Bear in mind that these are super early bird prices with 30% discount and they are valid until March, 30.
If you are a student from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Macedonia or Serbia the super affordable price for you is 40 EUR. Still, delegations from any part of the world will get to pay 85 EUR if they come in a group of 4 friends. If you come alone, you will pay 135 EUR which is still a fantastic price for a program of 30 Innovation speakers.
The best part of the game is that all the conference materials, INAT Summit Awards, Refreshments, Conference Lunches, Gala Dinners and Parties, are included in the price. You just need to figure out your accommodation and arrival, which will be a piece of cake in Belgrade, the capital of cool.
3. How many participants will there be at the INAT SUMMIT?
The capacities of our conference venue: Terazije Theatre are around 500, which is the case for workshop venues and party locations. Still, because we do this event for the first time we will be delighted even if we empower 250-350 amazing and ambitious participants.
We have prepared so many surprises that even the bigger conferences can envy. For instance, once INAT Summit is over, all of our participants will get the opportunity to take part in online INAT Mentorship Program where we will track their progress and help them build their endeavors until 2018 INAT Summit reunion.
Another way we created massive value for our visitors is that innovative minds in IT sector can apply for INAT Summit Awards. Thus we encourage all of you who will read this at MUNPlanet to go to our website and nominate yourself or a colleague for INAT Summit Awards
There are seven categories that you or some other IT business leaders may fit in: Best INAT Local Innovation and Best INAT Potential (for Serbian participants) and these for innovators from entire Europe: Best INAT Regional Innovation, Best INAT Company, Best INAT Potential, Best INAT Dude and Best INAT Gal.
4. How long will the conference last?
The conference starts on Thursday 20 in the evening with guests’ arrival and preparation for INAT Summit Gala Opening and Dinner Party. On Friday we experience the entire conference day within Terazije Theatre with refreshments and lunch breaks included. In the evening there will be INAT Summit Awards Ceremony and another party.
On Saturday along with Belgrade Marathon and festive atmosphere there will be parallel INAT Summit workshops that will teach you about financing your business with crowdfunding and/or investments, programming, leading a team, online marketing, and creating global business strategy. Then we will chill out at INAT Summit Earth Day Dinner Party and get hopefully some nice sleep for closing remarks on Sunday. For those who still have energy and who do not have the early plane to catch, we are preparing a guided tour about history, IT and youth passion.
5. Is accommodation included in the fee?
Accommodation is not included in the fee but we got some very cool special offers at the best Belgrade hotels and hostels. For example, you can stay at Hotel Park, a down-town three-star hotel with splendid breakfast and a brilliant service. It will cost 35 EUR per night for you to stay in a single room, or you can share it with a dear colleague for 25 EUR per night. Other hotels and hostels are also amazingly affordable because so many hospitality industry giants want to meet you and believe in this project.
So the best tip we can give you is go to INAT Centre and choose the best accommodation for you right now.
6. To what airport should I fly to when coming to INAT SUMMIT?
It would be the most convenient for you to fly directly to Belgrade, the city where the conference will take place. Our amazing volunteers and staff will be delighted to welcome you at Nikola Tesla airport in Belgrade.
Also, another surprise that we have provided for you is the organized mini-bus transportation for the delegations in the neighbourhood. For example, if you come with a delegation from Budapest, Banja Luka, Ljubljana, Podgorica, Sarajevo, Skoplje, Sofija, Zagreb, even Vienna, there is a chance to experience INAT Summit party bus.
7. What does the agenda look like?
We tend to think that INAT Summit agenda is the best part of the program. Although the event is organized for the first time, our speakers come from ten countries of the world and they are unbelievably committed to inspiring the community, especially young leaders.
So these are some of the topics you will learn about at INAT Summit:
How to land jobs in the 4th Industrial Revolution?
How to be more productive, creative and entrepreneurial?
How to prevent burnout in IT career?
How to build career at Google and other global corporations?
How to create marketing campaigns that will touch hearts and lives of people?
How do business ecosystems look like in Berlin, Belgrade, London, Tel Aviv, and many other cities?
How to crowdfund six figures for your venture?
How to succeed as a digital nomad?
How to build profitable online business?
How can we integrate refugees and create more jobs with the help of technology?
How is technology already disrupting your industry: from fintech, agrobusiness, health wearables, to drones, AI and Virtual Reality?
Let us group best sights in Belgrade according to three categories: learning, fun and history. So the most amazing place for learning is The National Library of Serbia which is just across the most monumental Orthodox temple in the world, Saint Sava’s Temple.
The places with best entertainment are water rafts on the Sava river which in the summertime host the most vibrant parties. Or Skadarlija, the bohemian quarter with orchestras and spectacular food that actually shows how Belgrade has its own Montmarte.
In terms of history, everybody gets inspired by Kalemegdan fortress and Victor’s Monument. It is fascinating to think of this colossal monument as the borderline between former Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman empire.
9. What is the application deadline for the conference?
The application deadline for the conference is April 17 at 24:00 CET (Belgrade time). Yet bear in mind that the conference tickets will be allocated on the first come, first serve basis, plus you can buy the early bird tickers.
10. How do I learn more about the conference?The best way to learn about the conference is to go to the website: INAT Centre to see the conference topics, speakers, and party themes.
