Networking forms the cornerstone of COM-EX 2023, offering attendees the chance to connect, exchange ideas, and shape the future of community-driven business.

Mini-exhibitions offer attendees a glimpse into businesses that have placed community at the heart of their operations. Featured exhibitors like Judith Guerra, Founder of Balance Experiences; Gaia Cavallaro, South Europe Community Manager at EatWith, and Luis Antonio & Jana, Founders of Soul, serve as live case studies of success achieved through community-centered practices, providing inspiration and practical knowledge to attendees. More exciting names are expected to join this lineup, offering a diverse range of perspectives on the community-driven approach.

A crucial aspect of COM-EX 2023 is its people. High caliber attendees will have the chance to exchange ideas, forge lasting partnerships, and shape the future of community-driven businesses with like-minded individuals. The day concludes with a celebratory COM-EX Party, where attendees can unwind, dance, and forge connections in a fun, relaxed atmosphere.
