LaFutura 2013 in AmsterdamPosted: May 21, 2013
NOW NEW NEXT
On November 11th 2013 researchers, innovators and creators will gather in Amsterdam for the co-working unconference LaFutura. The goal of this meeting is to map the business of trend research and future insights in order to create a framework for this new industry. The theme of this event is ‘NOW NEW NEXT Building the future industry’.
People from all disciplines working with trends and the future are invited, from trend researchers to scenario planners and from concept developers to innovation managers. Our starting point is a map called ‘The Future Navigator’, described by Delia Dumitrescu in the book ‘Road Trip to Innovation’. This will be a day full of insights and challenges on the future of this rising new industry.
LaFutura is a network and an annual one-day gathering of futurists, innovators and trendspotters from all over the world, to exchange insights with the aim to grow the trend and futures industry. LaFutura has been organized three times before, in Berlin, New York and Helsinki, where it brought together over 100 experts involved in trends and innovation. The event is organized on a non-profit basis and was initiated by TrendONE.
Amsterdam is the place to be in 2013, a year in which the city looks back at its great history and at the same time builds on the future of their citizens and visitors. The city celebrates memorable events like 400 years of world famous canals, the re-opening of the Rijksmuseum and the inauguration of a new king.
