EMW 2019 will take place November 14-17 in collaboration with a new IT conference Latitude44 (L44) to bring together two prominent IT countries, Canada and Estonia. By connecting our two sources of national pride, incredible music and the success story of e-Estonia, we will definitely find a new audience and more attention in the media.
What are we offering this year? During the day there will be a conference program and in the evenings good Estonian and Canadian music. We will also open a new exhibit, which has been taking shape as we prepare for the festival. Come for the tech and stay for the music!
