Tech Open Air (TOA) started as a crowd-funded festival and has grown significantly since 2012. This year, TOA runs from July 11 to July 14. Guests can expect more than 200 speakers and 20,000 participants. TOA is a festival meeting and conference format that unites diverse branches of technology, music, art and science. Besides its main location, the Funkhaus, TOA will spread out across Berlin with its Satellite events (many of which are free to attend).
Besides its summer festival once a year, TOA is also making an effort to extend its activities all year around with TOA Life, where the organizers share curated community stories and journeys as well as behind-the-scenes learnings and news.
TOA is part of Tech Open, which includes the co-working Space Ahoy Berlin, the online platform TechBerlin and the startup service provider Openers.
