Fifteen Seconds Festival 2019

The future
belongs to the
curious ones

Stadthalle Graz, June 6-7, 2019

Join 6,000 thinkers and makers at
Europe’s leading festival for business,
innovation, and creativity.

Empowering curious minds since 2014
Designed for those who never stop learning

What’s the definition of curious minds? For us, it’s people who passionately engage with new technologies, practices, and approaches rather than being overwhelmed by them. Curiosity means to never stop learning, facing the future head-on. Back in 2014, we began to build a global platform at the intersection of business, innovation, and creativity, gathering thousands of curious thinkers and makers in Graz, Austria every year. An immersive two-day experience, designed to exchange ideas and push each other forward.

In 2019, we extend Fifteen Seconds Festival by the new areas of science, mobility, and technology: interdisciplinary knowledge and contacts for individual growth and shared success. A highly diverse program, meant for everyone who never stops learning.
