The Future of the Future is an open platform that explores the creative economy and innovation in the 21st century.

It is an event that brings together some of the most important international protagonists of this area to share experiences, knowledge and research.

While looking at the present, this initiative also focuses on the future of society and the importance of the creative economy for the social and economic development of the world.

It explores the departure from conventional models and the subsequent transition to a multidisciplinary alternative that connects the general
economy to cultural and technological concepts, centred on the predominance of creative contents and services.

It is an event that possesses a strong international networking component and that is designed for a qualified and demanding audience. It stands as a platform for discussion and prospection, as well as a catalyst for cooperation and the creation of collaborative projects and networks.

The Future of the Future will take place in central cities around the world, such as São Paulo, Lisbon, New York, Shanghai and Abu Dhabi, with each edition focussing on a defined geostrategic orientation and specific themes.

SÃO PAULO

The Future of the Future takes place in São Paulo, a city that irrevocably stands as one of the great global centres of this century.

The event is organized in co-production with Grupo Bandeirantes de Comunicação and takes place during two days in an auditorium within a privileged location in São Paulo.

This edition was programmed within the scope of the Ano de Portugal no Brasil and integrated into the logic of this
initiative, and conveys a programme that presents as its geostrategic centre the Portuguese language and four countries where it is spoken – Portugal, Brazil, Angola and Mozambique – while also establishing a link with the United States, China, India, the UK and Europe.

The two-day programme is organized into segments of Keynote Speakers, Case Studies and Debates, and counts on the participation of invited moderators, rapporteurs and agents provocateurs.
