“It is the largest edition so far and, after 5 years, I believe we can say that the festival has reached maturity. It can easily stay in line with similar events in Dublin, Lisbon and Berlin. The audience’s and business community’s support is extremely important, and this is why I personally thank all those who supported us by buying a ticket,” festival founder Dragos Stanca stated.

The final agenda, with explanations for each stage and useful links for each session is available on the official website: ICEEfest.com.

Organisers also published on Facebook a so-called “survival guide” meant to help participants create their schedule using as efficiently as possible the festival’s complex agenda.

Also for an efficient organisation, the new mobile version of the ICEEfest community application has been launched.

The event’s website offers new tickets for specific areas of interest, with prices ranging from just EUR 30 to EUR 75 per day + discount packages (including a 50 percent discount for students). Likewise, resident physicians and medical students benefit from a 50 percent discount for ICEEhealth – the new event included in the festival and dedicated to technology’s impact in the healthcare domain.
