16 · 17 · 18 JUNE 2022 / RIMINI EXPO CENTRE & ONLINE
We at WMF have one big and ambitious goal: to foster a better Future enhancing digital education and promoting innovation, meanwhile boosting cooperation among social, economical and institutional actors, both in Italy and in the world.
The WMF - with its events and initiatives throughout the year - is an accelerator for culture, education, innovation and entrepreneurship, a tool at the service of society aiming at uniting people.
Education, Cooperation, Innovation, Inclusion as well as Research, Technology, Business and creativity represent essential elements for us. In this perspective, to strengthen our commitment despite the difficulties of these complex times, and to increase cooperation, in 2020 we have doubled the editions of our Festival, by creating - first in june and then again in november the first hybrid and widespread Festival in the world, thanks to our platform ibrida.io, wich allows activities were in fact streamed live for participants, following the event from wherever they are. On those days, we gathered again to explore the universe of Digital and Social Innovation.
In 2021 we were the first big event in Italy to be, once again, live and in presence in Rimini, with more than 24.000 attendees. We designed a whole new and advanced program consisting of over 100 events, like the World Startup Fest, and the Innovation Film Fest. We featured trainings, business meeting, networking occasions, art performances and cultural events; more than 600 speakers and guests from all over the world - Philip Kotler, Purna Virji, Siyabulela Mandela to mention a few; over 1.200 startup and exhibitor, and again live shows, concerts by Roy Paci & Aretuska and QueenMania, entertainment event and many other interactive activities.
All of this was made possible, worldwide, also thanks to our online platform ibrida.io.
We want to thank everyone who joined and supported us throughout 2021. Now get ready to build the next edition with us! We are already working on WMF2022, which has been confirmed to take place on the 16th, 17th and 18th June 2022 at Rimini Expo Centre, Italy, and Online on ibrida.io.
