SHIFT offers media a unique chance to get access to experience and share the festival, as well as book one-on-one meetings with our speakers, advisors, partners, interesting startups and enterprises. SHIFT is an event to attend and write about, not only because of the mind-shifting business program but also because of the unique venue and once in a lifetime art and design experiences.
