“The Thinkers50 European Business Forum has already established itself as Europe’s premier business event, bringing together gurus and CEOs to explore, share and define the new business agenda.”

– Peter Fisk

Thinkers50 European Business Forum 2018

26-27 September, Odense, Denmark

The European Business Forum is the premier event for business leaders in Europe. It brings together the continent’s top business people with the world’s leading management gurus in “the Davos of business thinking”.

The forum is hosted by Thinkers50, the world’s leading network of business thinkers, and located in Odense, Denmark. The home of Hans Christian Andersen, and now one of Europe’s leading robotics hub, is the perfect place to write the story of the future.

Making better choices” is the theme of this year’s forum. Business leaders face more choices than ever before, and there are few limits to the ways a business can grow. In fact, in a world of infinite possibilities, the hardest part is often deciding what not to do – to make choices.

At the 2018 European Business Forum we will explore how business leaders can most effectively apply these new technologies for more impact, for both people and profit.
