DYFConf Europe Speakers

You’ll speak with each speaker

Many conferences have speakers who fly in, give a talk, and hang out in a “Speaker’s Lounge” or their hotel room throughout the duration of the event.

Our speakers are attendees who just happen to be on stage. After each talk, we have ample time for Q&A with each speaker, and you’ll be able to mingle with them at breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all of our evening events.
