This is the third year Dscoop will hold an annual event in EMEA. This year the event is structured a little differently than the previous two events. Dscoop Grandmasters Summit focuses on business strategy, professional development and growth. The delegates participate in five, three-hour workshops.
“With the focus ofDscoop Grandmasters Summitbeing on education and business strategy, we thought it was a perfect opportunity to bring our partners even closer to the Dscoop community,” says Dscoop EMEA Director Peter van Teeseling. “The decision not to have a product showcase in Budapest came after consulting with our partners, and this year’s event provides new and exciting networking opportunities for them. We have been overwhelmed with the support we’ve seen from our partners and the eagerness to participate in the three days of education at the Summit.”
One of the new benefits for a Dscoop Grandmasters Summit King Partner was the option to host one of the five workshops which includes brand exposure in the room, as well as participation in the workshop curriculum.
