NEXT 2011

Concurrent with the renowned international cultural venue – Aarhus Festival – NEXT 2011 offers boosts for mind and matter. This eighth edition of our Nordic Exceptional Trendshop once again presents the very latest and the best proposals for what’s next in our lives and businesses. This year you can experience representatives and global leads within living architecture, publishing, design, car manufacturing and research. On brand-side of things these speakers represent the likes of Time Magazine, LUX, IDEO, HWKN and many more.

NEXT – Nordic EXceptional Trendshop – is a unique chance to get close to some of today’s greatest minds. NEXT is a vessel bound for the new, the odd angled and the unpredictable. A home ground for exceptional minds and their inventions. The first NEXT was held in 2004 and since then NEXT had grown to be an international – and acclaimed – landmark for forward thinking, the new and the next within technology and business oriented innovation.

Beautiful Mistakes is the focus of NEXT 2011 as well as the Aarhus Festival.

NEXT is part conference, part exhibition, part cultural and social event. Each year almost two handfuls of the most daunting international minds on business, technology and invention will take the five conference stages. They will share their secrets, passions, ideas, and insights in an informal and interactive conference setting. During the large exhibition some of the most forward facing and unexpected uses of new technology is drawn from research labs, startups, and R&D facilities from around the globe, to be showcased, tried, discussed and probably fixed a few times also during the exhibition track.

NEXT is a single track conference that covers a sharp edge across industries and organisations. All contributions are relevant for the forward facing and the curious professional with a special attention to five of today’s primary development models that also correspond with Aarhus core knowledge competences.
