Life is Web and WebFest.Me 2012 is a go! The biggest regional Internet conference will take place in Budva, Montenegro on September 20th and 21st: you’ll get a chance to hear some of the most influential people on the web talking about their experiences and how hard it was for them to get where they are now – online of course!
WebFest.Me consists of an online competition for the best website / web project and a conference that brings together the world best-known experts from all areas of the web industry and if you want to be a part of it – sign up now!
It all starts on September 20th. After the opening of the conference, four guys will deliver extraordinarily useful information about the regional web scene: Ivan Minić, founder of Burek.com, the largest online community in Serbia, Dejan Nikolić, founder of Njuz.net, a parody news site, Miloš Milošević from Mosquito.Me and Ivan Brezak Brkan, founder of the leading regional tech blog Netokracija.com (and editor of the official .Me blog).
Next up – David Balsar from Under.Me will talk about branding and why is it important to you. Heidi Harman of GeekGirl is going to talk about unlocked potential in women and how to reach it, followed by Brian Wong from Kiip.Me and his A “moments” based model talk. Boris Krstović from NewsCurve (which recently reached its exit by acquisition!) will explain how to start, pivot and exit a startup. Carolina Rossi form Startup Chile will talk about startup based economy as well.
The first day will end with a WebUp competition and of course – afterparty 🙂
First up on the stage will be Zé Fontainhas, founder of the Portugese WordPress community, followed by Ivan Brezak Brkan who will talk about why content is the king. Of course, content, although is a king, should be presented in a visually nice way, and that’s what Haakon Wium Lie, CTO at Opera is going to talk about.
After the break, Milica Begović Radojević from UNDP will talk about Foursquare for development, after which Lissi Mack-de-Boer from Sedo will talk about value of the domain. Now, you’ll get a lunch break!
Ryan Freitas, co-founder of About.Me (Maša did an interview with the guy!) will talk about UX design, while Ruth Burr from SEOmoz will have a talk titled “SEOmoz wonders”. After that, we’ll try to finish things up and announce WebUp finalists.
Why do you want to be a WebUp finalist? Because the winner of this competition will get a chance to present their project at TechCrunch Disrupt 2013. in New York!
So, don’t wait for the last chance; sign up for WebFest.Me now and meet us in Budva!
