Join Bea World Community – Where Creativity Meets Business


Tailor your content and engage

Build your personalized agenda mapped to your individual specializations and needs. Learn how to adapt business strategies and tactics and choose from uplifting keynotes, experiential workshops, successful corporate case studies or practical sessions. Discuss your individual challenges with corporate jury members and speakers in 1-on-1 meetings or run your own session joined by event professionals to get guidance and advice. Build relationships of value with peers and potential clients and meet opinion leaders and influencers to raise your international awareness. Continue networking in a convivial atmosphere during exciting leisure activities around Coimbra and its surroundings.

Unconventional session formats, a strict ban on marketing fluff and plenty of participant interaction will help you remember and apply what you have learned. Make use of the opportunities to define session content pre-event, to schedule appointments with experts, or to join your peers at topic-led luncheons or be rewarded as the “world’s most curious event professional”.

Meet the right people and talk to the stars!

Bea World offers you excellent networking opportunities and, thanks to the easy to use online seating solution NetworkTables, grants you the possibility to meet the right people at the right tables, which is what you want at events.

  • Star Talk & Lunch: before the event, NetworkTables will let you select a lunch table according to a topic that will be discussed at this table and will show you who is already seated at which table. You will be able to get in touch with other participants and take a seat at the table you prefer.
  • Pick a Brain. 1-on-1 Meetings with Experts: would you like to discuss your specific challenge with one or more experts? The NetworkTables algorithm will generate for you a personalized time-schedule to meet our speakers and jury members during 15-minute 1-on-1s.
