Business Insider Trends Festival


– the most important business conference in the CEE region in autumn in Poland-

Already for the second time, Business Insider Polska is organising the Business Insider Trends Festival international conference that presents an opportunity to meet the Polish and international visionaries of the business of the future. The event will take place on 2-3 of October 2019 at the Praga Koneser Centre in Warsaw. Among others, Henry Blodget, founder of Business Insider Inc., Hannes Schmid, photographer, millionaire and philanthropist, founder of Smiling Geco organization and Zev Siegl, co-founder of Starbucks café chain, have already confirmed their presence at the Conference. The speakers at the Business Insider Trends Festival will include also Ingo Rübe, founder and CEO of BOTLabs, Mark T. Hofmann, a crime analyst and business psychologist and Aleksander Wandzel, VP Sales & Marketing in Abstra. The group of speakers is also enriched with Ylva M Andersson, leadership and team coach.

The Business Insider Trends Festival is addressed to the executive staff, managers and representatives of start-ups. This year’s edition offering will be even broader – the organisers will invite participants to take part in an interactive festival of ideas, trends, art and music.

– The success of last year’s conference made sure that this year our event is a must on the Polish business scene – says Jovan Protic, COO Ringier Axel Springer Polska. During the first edition, on three stages we have convened 80 speakers from all over the world and 1 400 attendees took part in presentations and workshops where they learned how the new technologies will influence the change of the world of banking, finances, industry and our lives. In the new second edition, we will offer the public even more – adds Protic.

The four stages of success

The second round of the Business Insider Trends Festival expands the scope of topics and focuses on four areas of knowledge that will be presented on four distinct stages. Business 4.0, Global Economy, LifeScience and the new category – Media&Marketing – are the domains determining the operation of businesses in contemporary markets. Each is extremely crucial and may be critical to the “to be or not to be” of modern business.


– We are witnessing and participating in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Over the next six years, by 2025, a critical turning point will occur in the growth of many modern technologies – they will proliferate and change our lives to the extent we are not yet aware of. Printing human organs on 3D bioprinters, artificial intelligence on company boards, autonomous vehicles and the first commercially sold implantable smartphone – these are just some of the forecasts. Every industry is undergoing transformation and the speakers who will be presenting at the Business Insider Trends Festival will help the audience understand these changes and will open them up to new perspectives – says Łukasz Grass, Member of the Programme Board of Business Insider Trends Festival.


What will the future bring?

Continued development of artificial intelligence, the emergence of new payment systems, patient examination, diagnosing and treatment with the use of generally available technologies such as video conferencing and smartphones, without the need to see a specialist, are the processes that we will soon be generally using. Our environment and the cities we live in are becoming ever smarter. Technology became part of every aspect of life. How to find our ways in the cyber world? What will be the place for humans at times of another industrial revolution?


Visionaries within arm’s reach

Invited speakers will share their experience with the visitors – they are visionaries in their respective domains, business people and true success people. They may be heard not only directly from the stage. The interactive EXPO will facilitate networking and the organisers will provide space for private meetings, closed workshops and debates with the speakers.

Trends and much more

Business Insider Trends Festival is much more than just a business conference. The event will be accompanied by an art and music festival and many other cultural attractions provided by the organisers and partners of the congress.
