The Cristal Festival has served as the not-to-be-missed, annual showcase of the latest trends and developments in the industry since 2001. The Summit brings together European and international agencies, advertisers, producers, publishers, media, talent, and members of the technical industries, through debates, keynote speakers, conferences and workshops.
