On December 7-th and 8-th, our 2-nd Annual Spoonbill Nest Youth Conference for Future was an extraordinary success. We had over 550 registrants, who were presented with 16+ hours of live streaming conversations, insights, and keynote speeches from over 40 local and international experts. In contrast to last year, this time, we organized Albania’s first hybrid-online youth conference.


What was this year’s theme?

This year’s themes were Sustainability, Digitalization, Entrepreneurship, Management, and Soft Skills. Our amazing speakers made sure to bring a new perspective, not only for the youngsters but also for parents, teachers, and institutions. In conjunction with our co-presenter, the City of Elbasan, some presentations were watched by up to 5K viewers on Facebook, and our social media reach was over 50,000 people.


What are we looking forward to?
Just as we promised last year, each of the authorities started their speeches with a follow up of the promises they made last year. Although it has been a tough year, we were glad to hear that there was progress. events elite travel group
