Imagine this: Over 30,000 of the world’s leading online marketers, brands and agencies colliding across premier online and offline events worldwide. How can one company accomplish so much?
Our answer: With the right people on board.
Who We Are
iStack Conferences hosts bi-annual events in Dubai, Barcelona and Bangkok, along with large scale online events throughout the year. Since 2015, we have witnessed exponential growth. Our offline events welcome an average of 1,000 companies and 10,000 attendees annually, while our virtual conferences surpassed more than 50,000 attendees in 2021.
At iStack Conferences, we take the business aspects of conferences and turn them into fun, stimulating experiences. Our events attract the world’s sharpest online entrepreneurs who push boundaries and are looking to connect with the world’s brightest minds. We’re business savvy, but without the suit and tie. The dimly lit rooms and stale refreshments? Not for us. Think massive stages with LED, state-of-the-art lighting. Think beer pong tournaments, adult-sized bouncy castles and night events that give Ibiza a run for its money. Here at iStack, we know that ultimately, we’re all headed to one place: the future. Our dynamic conferences reflect this. Our motto here is ‘adapt and thrive’. We value the unique, the avant-garde, the innovative. We offer flexible working hours, virtual offices and depending on which event or role you’re hired on, potential travel to the locations we host conferences around the world.
Behind the creation of any great experience is a great team. To produce stellar events, we need a stellar crew. We take pride in recruiting the best talent from the worlds of design, marketing, development, event management and more. Time and persistence has helped us grow from a very small team to a global company that now consists of more than 75 insanely talented humans from all over the world, including.
We are now looking to expand our team further to take our vision as a company to the next level. Do you have what it takes to grow with us?
