This is Geeks On A Beach

What is GOAB?

Geeks On A Beach (GOAB) is a place of dialogue for people that care about tomorrow. It's an exchange-of-ideas conference that discusses some of today’s pressing topics set along the shores of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world - serious conversations in a relaxed atmosphere.

The conference is a connector between the leading tech capitals and the emerging startup promise lands of today. It’s given the spotlight to the Philippines and nearby regions.

The next GOAB promises to re-engage the community in the country, create new connections, and open new vistas of opportunity.

Geeks on a Beach started from the pioneering efforts of TechTalks.ph, which has now undergone a transformation and is known as #GeeksPH.

The 6th annual Geeks On A Beach international conference hosts more than 500 entrepreneurs, investors, innovators and global leaders in tech, startup, and design for an event filled with insightful conversations and opportunities to build up on the things that are important, set in a world-class beach resort in the Philippines.
