Thank you for an amazing NXTGEN Hightech Conference.

The strength of NXTGEN Hightech lies in collaboration. And that was evident during our very first Conference. With over 500 attendees, nearly 70% of whom were project partners, we gathered in Utrecht on March 12th. It was a day full of inspiration, but certainly also a day full of new connections. We thank everyone for your attendance. And remember: we innovate together!

Looking for connections? Please check our participants list (note: only attendees who agreed to have their company/names shared are on the list).
