Future Festival World Summit: Our Top Innovation Conference


Our Toronto Innovation Conference

Future Festival will begin with immersive trend conference safaris in the afternoon and end off with a Future Party complete with some of the hottest new tech releases to demo. Your second day at the Canadian innovation conference will be content-focused, diving into Trend Hunter’s 6 Patterns of Opportunity and exploring some of the key drivers of new trends emerging for 2019 and beyond. The last day of our Toronto innovation conference will be focused on driving action from insight in application workshops to help you prototype 5-10 key ideas to bring back with your team.

Our Toronto innovation conference is our Future Festival World Summit, designed to be the "World's Best Innovation Conference". Over 700 attendees come together to prototype their future. While most attendees come from all over the globe, Toronto, Canada is our HQ city with trend safaris, workshops and thought leaders. If you are free to choose, we highly recommend the Canadian conference versus any other city event because it is the complete 3 experience." – Jeremy Gutsche, CEO & NY Times Bestselling Author
