About us





48forward was founded in 2015 to create a conference format that focusses on technological, cultural and social trends to explore their impact on various life and economic areas. Over the years the conference grew and transformed into a three-day-festival with more than 1.000 attendees and 100 speakers from all over the world.

The 2020 48forward Festival is going to focus on optimism. We believe that we have to unite to create a future we all want to live in – to fight hate, populism and dystopia.
