The event was sold out and the venue was full of IT professionals. The sponsors had their own place to present themselves, answer questions and discuss potential collaborations and prospects with people interested in their work. The most impressive was stoiximan who had an installation of the VR project they made with the Greek football champion Olympiakos. It was really impressive to see it and more impressive to live it.

I was very happy to see many Greek colleagues that now work abroad and came to Athens for the event. Looks like Voxxed has become a pan-European meeting place.
The venue was OK for the talks but the rooms for socializing and networking were a bit small and were always very crowded. The food was fine, not as good as in Thessaloniki but honestly no Greek city has better food than Thessaloniki.
And now the interesting part
