Matthew Timms, CTO at E.ON, on the stage of the 48forward Festival

EUROPE’S MOST HOLISTIC FUTURE 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 festival 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.

UPCOMING EVENTS


48forward is hosting conferences every couple of weeks. Besides the annual future festival we organize special conferences focussing on topics like the future of mobility, healthcare, proptech or retail – don’t miss them!

Silke Kreiling talking about Futures Thinking during the 48forward Festival
Prof. Dr. Newton Howard talking about the Future of the Brain during the 48forward Festival
Adam Somlai-Fischer, Co-Founder at Prezi, talking about the possibilities of AR.
