We are counting down the days to DK2022, a much-anticipated festival which brings together the communications industry’s elite by day and hands out prestigious awards to the best Croatian advertisers and agencies by night.
The communications industry is gearing up for the new edition of DK festival – from 31 March to 3 April 2022 Hotel Lone in Rovinj will host leading international creatives, digital experts and communicators which will let the Croatian industry experts in on their unique perspectives. The official program is filled to the brim with great panel discussions, less formal discussions and conversations in which the local experts will get to share their opinions on relevant topics.
DK festival cannot stand stiffness and pre-rehearsed generic stances, but DK loves expertise, authenticity and a no-bullshit approach. This is why the festival’s 360° stage hosts only the boldest speakers who are confident in their knowledge – and in their stage presence – and do not hesitate to share it with others. The number of seats in the main hall is limited, but the amazing atmosphere is not: the attendees can tune in from the romantic setting of the hotel lobby’s indoor garden, from the hotel’s terrace or at the beach while relaxing to the sound of waves. It is of utmost importance to let you know that our Meet the Speakers stage is an ideal spot to hang out with the world-renowned keynote speakers, which will gladly answer any questions from our ever-curious attendees.
The energy of our unusual festival is so amazing that it is enough to just materialize yourself in Hotel Lone next to the best industry experts for a wave of inspiration to hit you, said Nikola Žinić, a member of the DK festival’s organizing committee. However, it would be a shame not to attend the lectures and miss out on discussions with your colleagues – the program is filled with topics that are worth being discussed, and the lecturers were carefully selected. The cherry on top is that you can attend lectures while enjoying a cup of coffee. Don’t say that we didn’t let you know and plan out your personal festival schedule wisely.
And of course, DK isn’t DK without highlighting the best projects of the Croatian industry. On Friday and Saturday evenings the whole community will get together for the prestigious ceremonies where we hand out awards to the Croatian industry’s best of the best. On Friday confetti will be flying in the air for our Effie and MIXX award winners, while on Saturday we will be applauding our IdejaX competition winners as well as officially handing out the awards to our brave young lions. All those who like to comment on winning projects with their colleagues will be happy to hear that they can tune in to the awards ceremonies in a more casual setting of the hotel’s indoor garden, but the cheering (and the cheers) can be as loud, if not louder than in the main hall.
To relieve some stress before stepping on the stage and giving winning speeches, and the morning after to regenerate after celebrating, our attendees can join our relaxing yoga sessions against a beautiful backdrop of Rovinj’s sunrise and sunset. And even those who like to relax by dancing to the rhythm of great music won’t be disappointed – on the first night of the festival everyone is invited for a long-awaited reunion, while the second and the third night will be dedicated to the best dance moves of our industry creatives.
Wherever they may be – at the beach, on the grass, in the middle of a discussion with the speakers after a main hall lecture, at the morning yoga session or the evening party – members of the unique DK community can expect to have their (creative) batteries fully recharged.
