Geeks on a Beach Returns to Boracay

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Geeks on a Beach (GOAB) turns 3 this year and a lot has been said and even more has been learned. It's time to put all of the learnings to the test, are we ready? Let's all find out: Sink or swim, as they say!

The geeks are going back to the one of the World's best - BORACAY BEACH, BABY! Where the sand is like powder and orange sunset has power. Boracay, with its pristine seas and world-class amenities, is the perfect place for this year's conference.

Geeks on a Beach is the honest-to-goodness, no holds-barred conference where people speak the truth about startups, tech and design.

Real people come to GOAB. People with dreams. Those that are looking to get started. The ones that are trying to make it over the hump. Those that have something important to say. Talented, forward-thinking, good people.

Heroes have come to hang out by the beach. BUSINESS people. Investors. Founders. Founders' buddies. Hotshot designers. Smart-a Developers. And you know what the good part about it is? Everybody gets a chance to speak up. You know what's even better? Nobody has to be forced to dress up. GOAB has cracked the code to the perfect half and half of events - important exchange of ideas in an environment that is not daunting. So leave your long-sleeved plaid shirts AT HOME, pack your tank tops and short shorts and book your flights for Boracay for August 20 and 21, 2015!

The main event is two days but the activities happen over four days. There are pre-event get-togethers and welcome drinks. Workshops and training sessions. Networking and pitching events.
