“Cristal Festival – The networking event not to miss”

Since 2001, Cristal Festival has grown from a small event to a more and more global event where people come together, debate, discuss, absorb trends, new stuff.

We were introduced to Christian Cappe and his team through our Nigerian CoolBrands curator Clara Chinwe Okoro who has a media partnership with the African Cristal Festival.

They invited us to come to marrakech to speak at their second African Cristal Festival, last October.

This was a great experience, a small scale, very accessible event, where we connected with a lot of people. Most of them are based in Africa.

Because we mutually liked our concepts, cristian invited us to come to Courchevel to do a key note speech at the yearly international Cristal Festival.

So here we are…yesterday we did our speech, which was well received.

So I think we will be seeing more of Cristal and they of us.

We talked to some people of the organisation, sponsors, jury members, attendees to figure out what makes cristal festival unique, worth your while, different.

Of course, everybody has a different reason to come, but the most common denominator is the networking.

The event is organised in such a way that all activities take place at the same location. So in between sessions, there is time to network.

There is a high level of accessibility to the people present, conversations are open as we are all looking to learn, grow and enrich our experiences.

In february 2015, the 10th MENA Cristals will take place in Dubai and we will be there, to speak, interact and network!
