Besides the annual conference 48forward organizes various satellite events – in total around 30 events per year.


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.


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.


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.
