The tracks for IWDK 2017

The festival programme for IWDK 2017 revolves around a broad spectrum of topics and themes with the tagline ‘Build a Smarter Tomorrow’ covered within 5 tracks - technology, marketing, business, creative, and citizenship.

Build a Smarter Tomorrow

IWDK wants to put the importance of digitalisation on the national agenda. The festival is all about how technology affects our lives and the way we do business. To make the most of tomorrow we believe in user driven development: listening, learning and collaborating. Scandinavia holds a strong position internationally doing exactly this. With the people – call them users or consumers – as the centre of our attention and work, we find the result is not only more democratic. It is simply better.
