Discover the SmartCities of the world / Gathering in the HafenCity


2015 our beloved ConFestival will build up its tents (literally, there will be a huge tent!) in the very popular HafenCity of Hamburg, Germany. In fact our new home will be full size sea containers, featuring workshops, un-conference and networking.

Our expo space for startups and tech players will feature the next hot inventions & ideas. We are inviting smart cities world wide to come and showcase their projects in Hamburg. This temporary FutureCity Campus will launch in June with its ceremonial climax at the MLOVE ConFestival 2015 – and will grow even more over the following months. The campus is planned to stay at this location until September 2016.
