■ 70+ Speakers | Concept Of Connections ■
This year we are shifting our focus to the concept of connections: how we connect diverse LGBTQ+ people under one roof, how we connect queer identity to the wider tech community, and how we connect our attendees with fresh new ideas and opportunities, both on a personal and professional level. All while delivering a day full of entertainment, networking, exciting new tech demonstrations and inspiring insights in one of Europe’s tech capitals!
Within one day 70+ passionate speakers will offer insight into different topics and let you get involved in various workshops. We will dive into discussions about gaming, virtual & augmented reality, app development, open data and data science, wearable electronics, solar energy technology, crowdfunding and start-ups. Get a glimpse of recent breakthrough developments in neuroscience research, reflect on queer feminist leadership and on our gender identities and perceptions, master our coding skills, enjoy networking and some good music. This will be a day full of excitement, encounters, performances, entertainment, presentations, installations, music, art and a lot of inspiration within one of Europe’s tech capitals. The program is going to be as diverse as its attendees. Get prepared for this unforgettable day!
■ Love Is In The Air ■
Same as with all of our UNICORNS IN TECH events, the central goal is to maintain an atmosphere of inclusivity that extends beyond the queer community. We welcome allies from diverse backgrounds across the world to our festival, as we strive to demonstrate that our shared passion for tech transcends all barriers.

When & Where
Welcome to Uhlala
Founded to combine visibility and appreciation of Pandas & Unicorns within the working world, Uhlala is the creator of several and interrelated projects. While these projects differ in regards to the industries approached and the intended participants, they all have one thing in common: desire to build stronger LGBTI communities and networks. United we stand, but divided we fall. Connections create space for mutual support and personal as well as professional growth.
Each member of the team represents a different angle of the diversity spectrum, drawing on and bringing in their own experiences as well as their expertise. Thus, we practice what we preach when we talk about proud companies: Uhlala is a very proud one.
