The Meraki Xperience is a 10-day gathering of entrepreneurs, makers, artists, and philosophers.
Between July 14th and 24th, on the island of Patmos off the coast of Greece, innovators from across the globe will come together for connection, rejuvenation, and the opportunity to inspire and co-create.
“Meraki” is a Greek word that means doing something with soul, creativity, or love. For example, when setting a table and putting your full soul and creativity into it, you can be said to be doing it with meraki.
It's not a conference (people don't wear suits or "network"). And it's more than a holiday.
It's a space where extraordinary people discover personal freedom and genuine human connection.
Pico Iyer once said, “It's only by having some distance from the world that you can see it whole, and understand what you should be doing with it.”
Meet people like you. Entrepreneurs, visionaries, creators - who are all out to make something happen.
Together with like-minded peers, learn new skills, challenge yourself, and rediscover creative passion.
Share your personal journey, ask meaningful questions, and exchange wild ideas with the tribe.
Get inspired by the visions and experiences of the extraordinary people around you. Share your vision, and connect with partners, allies, and friends.
Sink into the laid-back island vibe and Mediterranean lifestyle. Immerse your mind, body and soul in the landscape, the converstations, and the experiences.
Patmos is the perfect island for reading, wandering and thoughtful reflection. Give yourself the gift of solo time to do the things that bring you joy.
Dive into the project that you've been wanting to create, but haven't had the time and space to start.
