The photo contest at an IT conference!
The photo contest was a part of the Data Science Conference although it sounds strange. Here is what happened. Data Science Conference Europe 2021 was held from 21st to 25th November in Belgrade. Due to the current pandemic situation, DSC Europe 21 was organized as a hybrid event. Mercury Livestream platform was in charge of the online part. Everything went smoothly to the joy of the organizers as well as a large number of participants.
In the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Belgrade, several companies set up promo booths to present themselves, meet potential partners and coworkers, and strengthen relations in the IT community through networking. Mercury Livestream had one of the most interesting promo booths. We heated the atmosphere with the Mercury competition where many visitors took part.
The photo contest was conceived as a social media competition to collect as many likes, comments, and shares as possible. The photo contest lasted two days. In an extremely uncertain race, Marija Marković won the main prize.
At the closing of the conference, the organizer awarded her a laptop backpack full of useful gadgets. We wish all the best to Maria, in her future career!
