About the Thinkers50 European Business Forum

The Thinkers50 European Business Forum – dubbed “The Davos of Business Thinking” – will be launched in Odense, Denmark in May of 2017. One of Europe’s newest tech hubs, Odense is the perfect place to create the future of European business. Plan to join us for two days of the very best ideas, business networking, and focus on practical action.

The Forum will gather the world’s top business thinkers and CEO’s, and key managers of European businesses for annual two-day business forums focusing on innovation and growth.

The first-annual Forum will feature Harvard Business School’s Michael Porter.


Thinkers50, created in 2001, curates the world’s best management ideas, continually scanning for the new, disruptive, practical concepts that transform business and markets, driving innovation and growth through better organisations and the best leadership. This mission has inspired the Thinkers50 European Business Forum, enabling:

  • A bold new agenda for European business, from new technology to social progress
  • Making sense of the new order, migration and populism, robots and humanity
  • The best new approaches to strategy, innovation, projects and leadership
  • Broad, provocative, interactive, collaborative, and inspiring connection
