Friends of Digital Festival
15 – 18 September 2016 /Kaufleuten / Technopark /// Zurich
Can successful innovation be planned? Do brands have to become publishers? What can I still do better than a robot?
We will discuss these and other interesting questions about the digital future at the Digital Festival from 15 to 18 September in Zurich. The focus will always be on the challenges and opportunities for the Swiss economy. We are a partner of this premiere event and are looking forward to charismatic speakers, highly relevant topics and discussions with lively participation.
The Digital Festival comprises:
12 KEYNOTES: Relevant speakers and content that focuses on Switzerland without losing sight of the bigger picture.
12 LABS: Digital leaders up close and personal. Expand your knowledge and discuss topics in small groups.
10+ SESSIONS: Not a regular conference – this is a festival! We offer hands-on technology for you to try, yoga for nerds, and even evening barbecues instead of programming sessions.
HACKZURICH: The largest hackathon in Europe. New digital solutions designed in just 40 hours, with a jury giving awards to the most innovative approaches.
Among the first confirmed keynote speakers are Alain Chuard (co-founder of Wildfire), Philip Inghelbrecht (co-founder of Shazam) and Renaud Visage (co-founder and CTO of Eventbrite). Ninety-minute labs will be offered by SIX, KPMG and DIE POST, among others.
