We are all Futurists.

M is the exclusive MLOVE Forum about exponential experiences & accelerated brands.

Our carefully curated speakers and panelists will inspire and provoke, surprise and challenge your comfort zone. The content and talks follow a narrative that balances business strategy insights, success stories and presentation of world wide premieres of technology or thinking.

Throughout the flow of the agenda there is ample time to network – and we include evening programs with artistic experiences that keep you inspired to exchange ideas and add valuable partners to your network within the MLOVE community.

The program includes open innovation workshops, sports activities and interactive gadgets.
