15th & 16th of May
Maribor, Slovenia
We wish to give you many opportunities for establishing contacts with the right acquaintances at this year’s conference and meeting people who will help you on your entrepreneurial path.
This is why we have developed special side-conference modules, which will help you collect the right business cards and add the right knowledge and team members to your team.  


At the PODIM conference, we offer all participants the opportunity to potentially have a one-on-one meeting with the conference speakers, investors, startups or other attendees. Each participant can suggest up to three candidates for a 1:1 meeting, adding a personal presentation, presentation of the company and their expectations for the 'mentor'. If the presentation is convincing enough, we do our best to organize a one-on-one meeting with suggested person.

PODIM breaks networking

During the breaks on both conference days, including both coffee and lunch breaks, we will organise several opportunities for networking, connecting and gaining new contacts – in both a professional and a lighter, fun-filled manner.  

Evening PODIM party

At the end of the first day, there will be an evening party in the hotel, organised for all conference participants, including a DJ and entertainment. The evening party represents an additional opportunity for networking, meeting and fun at the conference itself. There will be no lack of good food, drinks and local specialties. Play contests will also be organized.
