State of the Net is a conference where you decide to go, not a conference where you pass by chance. Come and share two days of long term thoughts about the internet and its impact on our society, together with some of the most acclaimed experts and visionaries from Italy and all over the world.

Around State of the Net there is a growing and healthy community of innovators, curious about their time and not especially keen to follow the latest hypes. The goal of the conference is to help this network to become truly international, connecting reciprocally Italy to global conversations about ongoing shifts in everyday life.

State of the Net is the best opportunity for entrepreneurs and internet activists to showcase their ideas and products on an international stage. For local businesses, we are also a valuable partner in the worldwide promotion of Friuli Venezia Giulia region's brands and uniqueness.
