About Affinity

The idea to create Affinity came to life in 2017 when we decided that instead of taking part in external conferences we will create an extraordinary event ourselves and build a community of tech professionals!

We are proud to announce that it’s the second year that Akamai Affinity Tech Talks connects Akamai & industry experts to collaborate and share current hot tech topics!

Akamai Affinity Tech Talks is a conference which broaches the most important subjects of the current technical landscape, focusing on Security, Networks and IoT Technologies. It’s a one-day invitation-only event, dedicated to the IT professionals, consisting of in-depth technical presentations delivered by both Akamai and external experts. In 2018, we bring together the tech community to the Park Inn Hotel by Radisson providing plenty of opportunity to learn, explore and network.
