Internet Week Europe 2011

Internet Week Europe is a festival to celebrate Europe’s thriving internet industry and community.

The European festival builds on the success of the NYC festival, now in its fourth year, which saw the participation of over 200 organisations and drawing over 20,000 people in 2011, including Yahoo!, YouTube, Mashable, AOL, Time Warner, Pepsi, Motorola, The New Museum, New York University and Foursquare.

Celebrating Europe’s thriving digital media industry and community, Internet Week Europe 2011 honours the internet’s open structure by inviting the entire European internet community – from the biggest companies and most prominent luminaries to grassroots organisations, universities and cultural institutions – to participate and programme the festival.

Any organisation making digital and online efforts a key part of their business – from artists and investment banks to startups and meet-ups - can host an event during Internet Week Europe 2011. Events can be anything from conferences, technology demos, panel discussions, educational programming and meet-ups to late-night parties at venues across the city. All participants can add their event to the newly opened official calendar at no cost, and will have their events showcased and promoted as an Internet Week Europe 2011 Official Event Partner.
