European Editions of EmTech in Review
EmTech in Spain
Spain was the host for EmTech in Europe from 2011 to 2014. EmTech Spain first arrived in Málaga in 2011 where it anchored its community efforts around Málaga Valley. For two consecutive years the Palacio de Ferias y Congresos de Málaga, hosted this event welcoming european and international speakers, that engaged the audience in keynotes and panels about technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.
In 2013 EmTech moved further up, to the coast of Valencia, for its next two editions. The Palau de Les Arts Reina Sofía, one of the buildings of the City of Arts & Sciences, designed by the world-known Santiago Calatrava, was the chosen location for MIT Technology Review’s major european conference. Both Valencia and Málaga have been cities engaged with entrepreneurship, innovation and technological advancements, as well as research and development, framing the overall interest of a conference such as EmTech.
