Building an international forward thinking
community to shape a future
we all want to live in - since 2015.
48forward is all about exploring the future - about understanding what's going to be next.
48forward started back in 2015 with the vision to create a conference that is not about products or companies, but about technological and social trends and their impact on our daily lives and work.
What started as a one-day-conference soon developed into a whole series of events. The annual festival, our annual Leaders.48fwrd Summit and our focussed topic-conferences are just some of the things we are doing today.
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.
