About us

Our vision: Creating a community around a series of different events to discuss what cultural, social and technological trends and developments will affect us in the upcoming years.

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 formats.

We believe that society needs a platform like 48forward 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.


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.
