Jeremy Tai Abbett on stage during 48forward in 2016

EUROPE’S MOST HOLISTIC FUTURE AND INNOVATION FESTIVAL


Munich, world-famous Bavarian capital and hotspot for hightech innovation ever since we discovered that beer and agriculture are not the only things we can do at world-class level.

Since 2015 the city is also home base of 48forward, the annual conference and its regular satellites. Join us in shaping the future!

Our world is changing – faster than ever before. We have to find solutions for problems that never existed before. We have to be innovative, have to disrupt our very own mindsets for being able to think like no one ever has.

OUR SATELLITES


LEADERS.48FWRD


Three days full of inspiration, innovation, creativity and responsibility in changing the world into a better place.
What challenges will affect us within the upcoming five to ten years? Which technologies will disrupt our industries?
We want to discuss the future – with high-class international speakers.

TALK.48FWRD


Our monthly Talk.48fwrd sessions focus on one single topic. We invite one single speaker for an interview on stage or a couple of speakers to form a panel discussion. Our attendees are always able to ask their questions in an interactive and easy way and will use the event as a networking platform after the stage program.

DEEP.48FWRD


We don’t like the idea of having boring traditional workshops that challenge you to stay awake. With Deep.48fwrd we developed a half-day-format that will provide a deep-dive into one single topic. We invite a couple of high-class speakers and experts to discuss the topics and have a mix of speeches, panel discussions and Q&A-sessions on stage.
