redefine the next normal with us.
SHIFT BUSINESS FESTIVAL 25-26 AUGUST 2021
SHIFT brings together change-oriented business leaders, innovators, and decision-makers who believe that business as usual is not good enough. We cannot predict the future, but we can have an effect on it.
For two days in August, SHIFT Business Festival turns Turku Business Region into the Nordic epicenter of technology, insight, and co-creation of future business. Network with like-minded individuals, take part in matchmaking, and get inspired by the stage program.
CHOOSE YOUR LEVEL OF ENGAGEMENT
Circular Economy, AI & Digital Trust, Food Tech
This year at SHIFT Business Festival we present three main program tracks: Circular Economy, AI & Digital Trust and Food Tech. These three topics are at the centre of redefining the next normal, determining how to conduct business in the future.
The past year has especially shown how life cannot continue the way it is at the moment, but also, that change is possible and within reach. Circular economy is needed to resolve the current/ongoing climate crisis. With the European Green Deal, an ambitious set of policies to fight climate change, real action is required immediately. Both big and small companies are looking for more sustainable options.
At SHIFT 2021 we will tackle how you can implement circular economy into your business and elevate your business to higher standards. Companies taking the steps to a sustainable future now beat others to it.
AI & Digital trust
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been increasingly applied in remarkable ways, from online search engines to hospitals, it is ever-growing. However, the recent data breaches and information leaks are a raising concern, as more of our everyday life is digitally connected. Indeed, a company or business cannot thrive without its customers’ trust.
With the ever-growing digital and computerised world, digital trust and online safety are imperative. At SHIFT 2021 we will discuss what you as a business and member of society need to be aware of, and how can you benefit from AI’s full potential without compromising ethics?
From online grocery shopping to meat and dairy alternatives and to product traceability, the food industry trends and practices are changing rapidly. Led by technological advancements, these changes are opening new avenues for entrepreneurs and businesses.
In turn, at SHIFT 2021 we will discuss how large food production companies are adapting to changes in their customer values? How can customers’ needs be fulfilled, whilst creating a more sustainable future? The next steps, trends and successes of food tech are being defined now.
We will publish more speakers during the spring.
