Last week, the second White Nights CEO Summit took place in Barcelona. Around 200 top managers and high-level executives from 27 countries attended.

The majority of participants came from Europe, followed by Russia, Asia, North America, and South America.


Building on the success of last year’s CEO Summit in Cyprus, the organisers fine-tuned the agenda and introduced roundtables. Each roundtable brought together 10-12 experts who exchanged opinions and shared their experiences on a particular issue. Discussions included topics like developing IP from scratch, business scaling strategies, UA, fundraising, exclusive deals with storefronts, and work/life balance.


“The CEO Summit is about slowing down to really have a meaningful talk with each other. Typically, you go from one side of the conference hall to another and you run into dozens of people. But you only have time to say “Hi.”  Sure, it works fine if you are on the hunt for business cards or projects to publish/invest into – after all, that’s what major White Nights shows are for. The CEO Summit, though, is all about communication in a relaxed and trustful atmosphere.”

In addition to the official part, the two-day event included two networking parties. One was on the rooftop terrace of the History Museum of Catalonia, and the other – on an authentic 19th century boat!

Next year, the CEO Summit will take place April 27-28, 2020, with the hosting city to be announced later.

Meanwhile, the preparation for the next White Nights Conference is well under way. The event will happen on June 19-20, 2019, in St. Petersburg. It is going to be the biggest White Nights conference yet. The expozone area will be nearly 6.000. So there is still time –  and room for you to register. See you there!
