Welcome to SHIFT Business Festival, an international business event where the future is present today. The 2019 theme Shapeshifting Intelligence explores how socially and ecologically sustainable business no longer needs to mean diminishing profits and productivity.
Instead of AI hype, at SHIFT you'll witness how new technologies can be implemented to solve real-life problems. You can also meet the thought-leaders of our age, with backgrounds in business and technology, science and philosophy. Altogether SHIFT attracts 3000 tech and industry frontrunners to meet at the picturesque shipyard in Ruissalo, right where the archipelago begins.

PLACE: RUISSALO SHIPYARD, TURKU, FINLAND
