Creative Summit is blend of conference, workshop, party and some secret ingredients. Our first event in 2007 is older than a lot of the ideas, innovations and technology that we usually share talks on and it all takes place under the midnight sun in the north of Sweden.


We believe that bringing people together is important for sharing knowledge, inspiration and ideas and that by creating environments where people can meet, regardless of industry or background, is important.


Creative Summit is open for those interested in new ideas, technology, creativity and innovation. Each year we bring a broad range of speakers to share thier stories, dreams, success and failure.



We are extremely proud of our partners and the network that has been built since the first Creative Summit event took place in 2007. And we're always looking for new partners to work with, so if you have an interesting idea for a Creative Summit event or you'd like to learn more about how you can become a partner, please contact us.
