2. International Events
During Q2/Q3 2023, the MobiDev team attended 23 events covering the following locations:
MobiDev team members, Oleg Lola, Anna Karnaukh, Xenia Potiakova, Tatyana Nizheholtseva, Selma Ghalem, Liubov Zatolokina, Karyna Anisimova, and Iryna Volotska, had a very productive time at these expos and summits.
These were four intense days where we were networking non-stop, making new connections, and even meeting some of our clients. Once again we are convinced that we are on the same wavelength with our clients. On the last day of the event, all participants could attend Elon Musk’s talk, but since it would take 3-4 hours to wait in line to get into the auditorium, our team decided to watch it on a monitor screen. However, this didn’t stop us from meeting Emmanuel Macron just a meter away from us.

I had the privilege of attending the Bits & Pretzels conference in Munich this year, and I can’t express enough how impressed I am with the entire event. The atmosphere was electric! Meeting brilliant minds, engaging in insightful discussions, and learning from some of the brightest innovators in the industry made this event unforgettable.
