SxTech EU 2022, the annual European sex tech event with focus on retail and startups, is set to take place in Berlin on August 31 2022.
The event will take place at the German capital city’s Nåpoleon Komplex venue. Organizers have not revealed details of the conference beyond the venue and date, but it is likely to be a hybrid in-person and online event, as was the case for the 2021 SxTech conference.
Tickets for online access to the 2022 conference are not on sale yet. A basic online ticket for the 2021 event, which took place in Wrocław, Poland last month, cost €45 euros. Prices rose to 200 Euros for an ‘investor’ ticket for virtual access. Tickets to attend the 2021 event in-person cost between €170 and €300 euros.
The event is heavily focused on sextech production and retail companies, particularly startups. Speakers at the 2021 conference included Soumyadip Rakshit, CEO of British sex toy firm MysteryVibe, and Shakun Sethi, founder of sexual wellbeing and lifestyle platform Tickle.life.
The 2021 SxTech EU conference was held as part of the European tech conference Wolves Summit. The Wolves Summit Pitch Contest, the startup competition held at Wolves Summit, was won by Pleasy Play, a subscription service with an app that delivers sextech products to customers on a bimonthly basis. Kind of like Beer52 but with vibrators instead of craft ale.
Pleasy Play won the overall Wolves Summit Pitch Contest after winning the SxTech Great Pitch Contest that preceded it, that was just for sextech companies. In doing so, the company won €50,000 euros in funding to further the idea.
While details about the contents of the event are obviously still subject to change, we’ll expect to hear more as the Winter progresses.
