What makes going to a conference a great experience is meeting people having a great variety of backgrounds and perspectives, all sharing a common passion.

Being able to discuss, work out ideas, or just chat over a cup of coffee with hundreds of people over two days is what makes the difference between attending and watching a video online.

Every year we're surprised and delighted to see how many new connections, friendships, projects and smiles are born at #Pragma Conference. That's why we put a lot effort into making #Pragma Conference a great environment for our community to network, relax and have fun together.

what people say

I really enjoyed Pragma Mark. I both gave a presentation and held a workshop, so I got to meet a tonne of people. Pragma Mark was a great relaxed environment. Being held in the heart of the beautiful Milan doesn’t hurt, either.

Pragma Conference is one of the European events with the best content. Amazing workshops and stellar speakers attract audience from around the globe. The event is a fantastic opportunity to network, enjoy great food and wine, and visit Italy.
