You may have heard some great reviews about past BP conferences. But why is all the hype?

First, BP18 has a unique conference format.   On the first day we have a series of short, TED-like talks, each followed by a short Q&A session. We use a mobile app that members of the audience can use to ask questions during the talk – then our witty master of ceremonies poses the most popular questions to the presenters.    Day two follows a more traditional pattern of longer sessions in three parallel tracks – allowing for a wide variety of professional content to be presented during the two days of the conference.   Our long coffee and lunch breaks also contribute to more meaningful conversations.

Second, BP conferences are known for their unique, easy-going atmosphere that actively encourages and facilitates new encounters, many of which turn out to be fruitful professional cooperations or even long-term friendships.   We also lay heavy emphasis on fringe events – more specifically on our three networking dinners where conference attendees can go beyond the small talk.

Third, each annual event take places in a lively historical setting. Vienna has so much to offer, with its grand palaces, world-class musuems, classy cafés, concert halls, flea markets… the list is endless.

Repeated attendees of BP conferences are the best advocates, persuading more and more colleagues each year to attend.
