Tired of conferences?
Join Fifteen Seconds Festival.

6,000 attendees | Graz, June 4-5, 2020

We educate the other way: Grow your network and learn from the best
at Europe’s leading anti-conference.

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

Curious minds: To us, they are people who continuously and passionately engage with new technologies, practices, and approaches. They never stop learning and tirelessly face the future head-on.

In 2014, we created Fifteen Seconds as a global platform at the intersection of business, innovation, and creativity that has since brought together more than 20,000 thinkers and makers from these areas in Graz. Together, they’ve shared ideas, pushed each other forward and helped shape the future.

At Fifteen Seconds Festival 2020, we continue to focus on diversity of content and, once again, unite the brightest minds from all over the world in Austria: to bring you interdisciplinary knowledge and valuable contacts for individual growth and shared success—designed for everyone who never stops learning.
