“It is my pleasure to make the welcome note at SlavConf., which is usually opened at our official ceremony hall – the Aula! Unfortunately, this year we couldn’t see you there, but I hope that every one who visits the conference is open-minded and sees the new opportunities in these challenging days. We use those opportunities to break the walls and share creative ideas with as many people as possible through digital technologies. To have the possibility to touch the minds and hearts of many people, their creative thinking and actions, their interesting ideas. For all these reasons, I believe this conference will have success. I wish luck to all participants and guests and I thank the organizers – Atanas and Lilia. I hope next year we will see each other in our really very beautiful Aula. Let’s open the conference now and next year you are all welcome again at Sofia University! I hope we can be all together there. Thank you!”
The sessions of the program covered the topics of journalism and art, how to sell a video game, business perspectives in the creative industry, success indicators in the music business, graphic representation of a dance, video marketing and more.
