TNW and Startup Valencia are back together — and on a VDS date


TNW is taking our relationship with one of Europe’s top innovation hubs to the next level. We’re teaming up with Startup Valencia to accelerate the international expansion of tech extravaganza VDS — which soon reopens its doors to the future.

On October 23 and 24, the seventh edition of VDS returns to Valencia’s breathtaking City of Arts and Sciences. During two jam-packed days, the sunny city will become a global epicentre of innovation.

Expect inspiring talks from world-renowned tech experts, stirring panel discussions between business leaders, and unique opportunities to mingle with prominent startups, corporates, and investors. Last year, over 12,000 professionals from 91 countries were in attendance, alongside 600 investors — with a portfolio exceeding $8bn.

Naturally, TNW will also play a central role in this year’s show. Drawing on our experience of organising one of Europe’s leading tech festivals — TNW Conference in Amsterdam — we’re helping to shape the agenda and bring in illustrious speakers.

We’re also hosting our own International Ecosystems Forum during the event. This will provide companies in Valencia with pathways to attract talent and drive both domestic and global growth.  

Alongside the forum, TNW will partner with VDS to expand the event’s startup competition. The contest will shine the spotlight on prodigious talents from across Europe.

Locally, that talent is building a thriving tech ecosystem.
