Blue Skies

IFB2016 is about sharing ideas, being inspired and changing the future. That is why we launched the Blue Skies programme – it is inspirational, challenging, prophetic – and it is open to everybody.

Blue Skies Speakers will round off the festival day programme at half past five – fifteen of the world’s most creative entrepreneurs, economic experts and political leaders will share their experiences and their stories to inspire and motivate.

Alongside the speaker programme, Blue Skies Events run daily throughout the festival. Cutting edge debates and insights will challenge the way we think about business, society, the environment and culture.

The Blue Skies programme is completely free and it will deliver a unique, innovative and inspirational festival experience. It is the part of IFB2016 that truly is for everyone.
