As the sun goes down on Tuesday, September 4, join us in Stockholm’s vibrant Södermalm district, where the Fotografiska Museet will be opening its doors to our delegates and speakers. The museum exhibits pieces by the world’s leading photographers in stunning surroundings – making it the perfect location for our opening party!

Tech insiders will deliver a welcome speech that leaves audiences at Fotografiska with valuable takeaways — as well as that feel-good glow of being in exactly the right place at the right time.
Don’t think that this evening will only hold treats for your eyes: get ready for a DJ set from one of the hottest producers — who exactly will be revealed shortly...

september 5: raise the curtain for a night full of surprises

The Södra Teatern, an ornate 19th century theatre, offers a stunning space for partying, including a huge veranda to enjoy balmy Swedish evenings on. Enjoy the beauty of your surroundings when visiting on Wednesday September 5, to dine, network, watch a film screening, share your day’s experiences – and party to live music in the heart of the city!

  • Don’t miss the smart Startup Slam (7:00 – 8:30 pm), where local and international startups alike will be competing for one big prize by presenting their rival’s slides to an audience and jury.
  • Then get set to dance hard. Musicians across a dizzying spectrum of genres will perform and DJ, with performances from Adée (soul/hip hop), Elle Exxe (electro-clash), Royal Prospect (rock), Simon Alexander (folk), Púr Múdd (pop), Klez (soul), Tall Blonde (indie pop).
  • Looking for a chiller way of spending your evening? Then don’t miss the Swedish premiere of the AI documentary More Human Than Human at 9 pm, also in the Södra Teatern.

september 6: hot and cool

Information point by day, party hotspot by night. Located in Stockholm’s Norrmalm district, the lounge atmosphere of the Mercedes Pop-up Store makes it the perfect place to relax with a drink and some chill music. A great meeting point for friends or an even better meeting point for finding some new ones. Be sure to stop by before saying hej då, Stockholm!
