Instead of April, DK festival will be held 29-31 October 2020 when global industry leaders will come to Hotel Lone in Rovinj to inspire the communications industry for three days.
Instead of the beginning of April, DK festival will take place on 29-31 October 2020. Following the WHO guidelines on the global spread of coronavirus and our commitment to the safety of all 3000 attendees, speakers and partners who make our unusual festival one of the best events in the world, we have decided to reschedule DK2020 to October. The decision was also based on the fact that several companies of festival speakers and participants have imposed bans on travel and attendance of public gatherings. The rescheduling put the festival on a growing list of national and international events that adapted their schedule to the precarious circumstances, prioritising the safety and well-being of every individual.
We thank our longtime partners and loyal participants who have already purchased their tickets and assure them that their tickets as well as Maistra hotel bookings remain valid for the fall edition of the three-day DK festival. So hold on to your tickets, they are an invaluable investment in your education, business and the progress of our national market communications industry.
