Everyone is a VIP
Respect is the foundation of all interactions. Everybody is a human being first. That’s why we treat everyone the same. What you can contribute is more significant than a title or your status. Everybody has a story to tell and everybody can contribute something. PIRATE is a place where people can be themselves.
From day one, we never had a dedicated corner for speakers or journalists. If they wanted to be part of PIRATE Summit, they had to immerse themselves with everyone else. In 2018, we discontinued the “Speakers Dinner” the night before the PIRATE Summit kick-off. That was the only exception we had until that point.
