Where Extraordinary People Meet

What is it?

The Meraki Xperience is a 10-day gathering of entrepreneurs, makers, artists, and philosophers.

When, Where, What?

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.

What Is "Meraki"?

“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.
