Building The Future is where technology, transformation and leadership meet to empower people and organizations.

Where you’ll find world-class experts that are changing the way we interact with reality. And where you’ll be able to learn from them with hands-on sessions and outstanding use cases.

After an unprecedented first edition, Building the Future established itself as Portugal’s greatest tech event, returning in 2020 to build the vision, the strategy, the foundations and the code necessary to create the future.

Digital transformation is happening right now at an incredible pace and it’s impossible not to embrace it.

Building the Future is the place where experts meet, helping us to understand how technology is constantly redefining human progress. Futurist Gerd Leonhard, non-obvious Rohit Bhargava or A.I. fearless Jim Stolze shared their knowledge at inspiring sessions, paving the way for this year’s edition.

Get to know the current trends and build the vision for a collective future.

If you think your company is already digitally transformed and making the most of it, think again.

At Building the Future we go beyond concepts: we’ll show you in concrete and tangibly the gains new technologies will bring to your business.

Learn from visionary leaders and innovative case studies what’s the future of customer journey, how to make the most of a Gig Economy and how to build an innovative culture.

Get ready to boost your company’s productivity, creating new products and services and reshaping the way they collaborate and work.

In a world where all businesses are technological, you don’t need to be a heavy user or developer to understand how it impacts the world we live in.

It’s vital to empower all those who deal with technology on a daily basis to subjects such as Business Apps, Big Data, Blockchain or IoT so they can make a difference.

Once we strongly believe in democratising technology, the content offered during the event will allow the participants to fully emerge into what a technological business is and to be up to date with technological innovation.

Go deeper. Move forward. Code!

Whether you are a DevOps, an IT Pro, a Maker or you’re just getting started with javascript, in our hands-on sessions, we’ll give you the skills to build the future.

Interact with the technology you love, watch live demos, learn from experts and make a difference.
