About Us

MISSION


  • Hello Makers.

    From September 16th to 20th 2022, the seventh Digital Festival unites digital makers in Zurich. Whether hackers, managers, scientists, programmers or CEOs, we focus on the individual. Over the course of five days, we combine hierarchies, functions and industries in one place, build bridges, and create Switzerland’s most relevant, interdisciplinary and future-oriented community

  • Hello Future.

    We focus on visionary thinkers. We bring pioneers, digital movers and shakers to Zurich, who challenge existing structures and think in new ways. At the Digital Festival, the international world of technology discusses the major topics of the digital future – always with regard to the challenges and opportunities for the Swiss economy and society.

  • Hello Inspiration.

    At the Digital Festival, we do not dazzle people with buzzwords or lengthy talks about what is possible in Silicon Valley. Instead, we prefer to create lasting inspiration by encouraging people to exchange opinions and discover new approaches. To this end, we have created platforms which everyone can actively participate in and contribute to, and on which technology can be experienced.
