Basic Facts

One day – 400 attendees – 30 international speakers
22nd February 2018 – Munich, Germany

The innovation and future conference 48forward unites 400 attendees and 30 international high-class speakers – a hotspot for forward-thinking minds.

The one-day conference will take place in Munich on 22nd February 2018.

The conference focusses on trends and visions in different life and economic areas. Thereby we don’t want any marketing-presentations on stage – it’s not about products, it’s about the ideas behind them, the role they play in an ever developing world.

Furthermore we don’t want an anonymous event for exchanging business cards without getting to know each other. We want a very personal event, a developing community that somehow feels like a big family of like-minded people.

2016’s 48forward Conference took place at Freiheiz in the heart of the Bavarian capital Munich. The big old brick house was once used as a turbine plant and is a extraordinary event location for almost ten years.

The location of 2018’s 48forward conference is going to take place in Munich again. The exact location will be announced within the upcoming months.

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.

About last year…

2016’s 48forward took place at Freiheiz in Munich on November 24th. We had 40 speakers on stage. 

It was an inspiring day and we all had a lot of fun – looking forward to repeat that this year.
