We attended four different tech events in the month of April. They all varied in size, field of focus as well as place. We went to Seedstars Summit in Lausanne, App Builders Switzerland in Lugano, IoT Tech Expo Global in London as well as eCom in Geneva. We gained a lot of valuable insights from each of the events.

But now, the month of May is here with new opportunities to gain even more valuable insights at new events. While many of the past events have targeted a large crowd within a broad tech focus, there is one event this month which is quite niched - The SPOT 2018 organized by ThinkSport Network. Continue to read to see why this event is different from the other tech events we plan to attend in May!
