CITIES OF THE FUTURE

At TNW, we’re thinking about the future of technology. We want to explore how tech can help solve challenges on sustainability, security and mobility, much of which start local at the city level. Our mission will showcase policy approaches and solutions, both at our pavilion and the innovation workshop. If you’re not engaged yet, the Ecosystem builders and Future Generations tracks will be sure to inspire you.

FINTECH

Since Bitcoin’s boom in 2017, the cryptocurrency industry has had its ups and downs (literally). Yet blockchain technology still has the potential to improve our lives. Perhaps you’ll help us find a solution for the Northern Ireland border issue? At TNW, experts share their strategies and predictions for mass adoption in the face of uncertainty.

AI & MACHINE LEARNING

Both the UK Government and TNW have identified artificial intelligence as having the potential to radically change the way we work, live, and play. Showcase your innovation at our pavilion, engage with key influencers at our VVIP lunch and get inspired by some of the world’s greatest thought leaders in AI. 

CREATIVE TECH

The Creative Sector in Amsterdam is booming, and technology is increasingly becoming a core medium of expression. TNW has made ‘the art of tech’ a key conference track. Come and listen to the biggest names in the creative sector, close partnerships and be in front of the wave.
