Explore the exhibition floor, hosting more than 300 exhibitors in the last edition, and discover all the newness in services and digital solutions, or attend the great international Startup Competition, in which WMF and its partners have already awarded more than 3.3 million euros in prize value.
Get acquainted with the global innovation ecosystem, attend institutional panels held by governmental organizations, and enter the conversation about political approaches.
Look for a new, exciting professional project or your next co-worker with the Digital Job Placement, where companies meet professionals, and freelancers can find their ideal job match.
Relax while enjoying the WMF side events, a great opportunity to network within an informal and friendly environment.
Finally, end your journey on the Mainstage, where +5.000 people onsite - and over 6 million live stream users - will join and listen to international culture icons, activists, and scientists giving their invaluable contributions on the many ways technology can support in creating practical solutions regarding sustainability, social impact, human rights, accessibility, and more.
WMF is not a summit, it is not quite a festival, it is rather an accelerator for culture, education, and innovation, operating as a tool for the entire society.
"We are not an event, we are a tool for society. We are not just a fair, we are a pathway for acceleration. We are not simply a festival, we are activists. We are a platform for building the future. Together."
Cosmano Lombardo - CEO of Search On Media Group and creator of WMF
