InnoTown Conference was established in 2000, and is regarded as one of the Premier Business&innovation Conference in Europe. Every year InnoTown curates an acclaimed program of world-class speakers that is truly engaging for anyone with an international and innovative outlook.
InnoTown is more than a conference, it is something special. I have good memories from last year when I gave my contribution working as a volunteer with the InnoTown team and it was a fantastic, unusual, innovative and inspirational way to contribute.
This year I attended the conference as a guest and I shoot some photos during the event. I enjoyed a lot the speech of Shannon Deegan, Google's Director of Global Security Operations. I also had the chance to chat with him for a few minutes and share some thoughts.
