The unique location

PIRATE Summit is not simply a conference. It goes beyond any ordinary experience. And to embrace the extraordinary, it takes place in one of Cologne’s most unique locations: Odonien – a scrapyard turned into an outdoor art gallery. It is the perfect pirate location and offers enough space for robots, fire, networking, and fun.

bUILD FOR MEANINGFUL EXCHANGE

The people coming to PIRATE Summit always rave about its atmosphere. To get it right we carefully curate the agenda and formats. We strive for interactivity, P2P learning and meaningful exchange.

The burn ceremony

After an exciting day full of inspiration, motivation, and networking, you’ll be part of an extraordinary event: an 8-meter tall wooden sculpture, based on an old Cologne Carnival tradition called “Nubbelverbrennung”, will be lit on fire on the first night right before the infamous party. Grab a bottle of rum and rethink your past experiences & what you have newly learned while watching the statue burn in the name of entrepreneurship!

“Once you have been in a summit, you think the second time will not surprise you again.
But PIRATE Summit is always unforgettable.”
