About us


Our vision: Creating a platform for different event formats with an active community to discuss future trends and innovation topics.

48forward is all about the future, about innovation in many different areas.

We started back in 2015 with a one-day conference which is now an important part of a whole set of various event series. We believe that society needs a platform like this to discuss innovation and future topics – if we miss to talk about all those developments in an open and transparent way we will create a breeding ground for fear and misunderstandings.

Advisory Board


48forward would not be possible without a lot of great minds that support our vision with their ideas, inspiration, motivation, network and energetic help.

One part of that team is the 48forward Advisory Board – a group of amazing people that help us to identify the most interesting topics and best speakers.

I like 48forward. It became an important platform for me and it is one of the very few conferences that especially address socio-cultural topics in relation to digitalization. Remarkably it does not leave its attendees unthinkingly behind with the mammon “technology”. Furthermore it’s a great occasion for networking with relevant and exciting people – in a casual surrounding.
