Communication in the era of cyborgs & algorithms

We live in a time where our ways of communicating have changed dramatically in a very short time. Of course, this will not stop. With all new technology that will be embedded in our society and even in our bodies, we quickly move forward to a world where the outcome is still unknown.

What we do know is that this will open up a world where we will communicate in new ways, this will change how we communicate, offer services and live our day to day both in our physical and virtual life.

We believe that this year’ s Creative Summit will bring you insights that you can use when forecasting how both you and your organization will interact with both your fellow colleagues and clients in the future.

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.
