Why become an event organizer?
Our first question is - why not? If you have an idea, we have the platform! If you are ready to submit your event, feel free to do so here, otherwise follow our suggestions and input on how to plan and promote a successful event at Internet Week Denmark 2016 below.
All events submitted to internetweekdenmark.com will be included in the programme for the festival. If you submit your event by April 1, yours too will be in the printed programme.
We expect 5000+ participants this year. Last year, more than 4500+ attendees participated in over 100 events. It is a festival open for everyone, just like the internet is an open platform for everyone.
Who Can Submit an Event?
Anyone — whether an established company, startup, organization, agency, public institution, or individual — can submit an event as an official Event Organizer of Internet Week Denmark.
Why Submit an Event?
Internet Week Denmark is based on the concept of crowdsourcing, which means that companies, educational institutions, networks, and individuals contribute by hosting events during the festival. In that way your role as an Event Organizer is essential for the festival.
By hosting an event during Internet Week Denmark, you and your company will become a part of a digital festival that celebrates the success and the impact of the internet on innovation, business, and our everyday lives.
This year’s festival is the third Internet Week Denmark held in and around Aarhus. In 2014 and 2015 the festival went beyond all expectations, which is why it is a perfect opportunity for you to create an event that supports business, network expansion and image and branding of your company. Make sure that your company becomes a part of all this by hosting an event during Internet Week Denmark May 9 - 13, 2016.
What Kind of Events Can I Host?
Our best advice for you as an Event Organizer is to think of your target audience when you plan an event. In general, you can submit any event you would like. We aim at diversity in the activities during Internet Week Denmark and welcome both events aimed at a more narrowed target audience and events aimed at everyone - citizen, professional, or executive. However, the event must remain within the official framework that consist of the following five tracks: Technology, Marketing, Business, Creative, and Citizenship. You can get more information about each track here.
