“There are more than 53,000 tech conferences and meet-ups in Europe every year, so it’s important to choose the right one. I went to ZEST for the first time last year and it was excellent; one of my Top Five for 2016. I’m looking forward to going back this year to see how things have progressed.”

“In my opinion, ZEST is fast becoming the signature startup conference of the Mediterranean region. Provocative and eclectic, this is the type of community that I personally enjoy interacting with. I enjoyed participating at this event and I look forward to the next one. I also commend the brilliant work done by the MCA team!”

“The ZEST event was an overwhelming success, everything was indeed on a mind-blowing level, from the whole performance of so many local and multinational top speakers to the organisation … it could easily compete with such events in London, Paris, Berlin, Israel or even the U.S./silicon valley in any aspect – even more with the lovely island, country, sea, weather … just as a dream!”
