Fall 2018

Hello Detroit.

Fifteen Seconds USA 2018

Driving positive change.

Europe’s leading interdisciplinary festival is coming to the States. Join 2,000 visionaries in Detroit.

Fall 2018

Designed to
make you grow.

Back in 2014, we began to fundamentally rethink what a conference experience should feel like. Since then, thousands of curious minds have decided to join our events and helped make Fifteen Seconds into what it is today: Europe’s leading interdisciplinary business festival. 2018 marks our next step. We’re coming to Detroit. Why? Glad you asked.

The time
is now.

We’ve heard the news: Detroit is on the rise again. Since we’ve fallen in love with the city, we want to be part of this movement and make our contribution. Our festivals gather thinkers and makers from highly diverse fields and industries in one place. What they all have in common? The will to shape the future.

A stellar community of big-thinking innovators who will inspire and wow you. This festival is on my A-list.
