Agria Produkció Ltd. organized Hungary's first Web 2.0 conference in 2006 and the country's first BarCamp conference in 2009. Since then it has become one of the most important and prestigious conferences on the internet.

BarCamp is an international conference set up by participants, often focusing on early stage web applications in an open workshop setting formulated by its participants. BarCamp events are organized and "evangelized" mainly through the web, using web2.0 tools for its operation.

Web 2.0 Symposium BarCamp Budapest conference was also open for anyone to give a presentation, as long as they registered for the conference and sent their résumé, photo, as well as the title and summary of their presentation. Participants were invited not only to give a presentation, but also to raise an issue with the purpose of discussing it at the event with fellow attendants.

There are four simple rules: 1. Do not present your company. 2. You can have a total of 20 minutes, questions included. 3. You have to buy your ticket to the conference. 4. Your presentation will be checked before the conference.
