The Festival is an annual multi-day event that traditionally attracts large numbers of stakeholders (up to 500/day) representing various sectors of the economy (including the ‘blue economy’ sector, e.g. maritime transport and tourism), and various target groups (including investors, entrepreneurs, researchers, foreign diplomats, Ukrainian government officials, NGO representatives, university and high-school students, and members of the general public). Besides Ukraine, the Festival brings together stakeholders from other countries, both European and non-European, including Azerbaijan, Georgia, Germany, Great Britain, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, France, Poland, the USA and others. Thus, for the purposes of the 4BIZ Project, the Festival in itself may be viewed as an activity aimed, in part, at maximizing the 4BIZ project’s outreach to a vast pool of stakeholders.
Since 2020, the Festival is held in blended format (in-person plus online).
The program of the Festival usually includes:
Within the Festival-2023, the thematic section of the 4BIZ project will be organized.
