The Future of Work is Now!

UNLEASH World Conference & Expo returns to the RAI Amsterdam in 2018 as the largest conference in the world on the Future of Work and Technology. As organisations adapt to the future of work, models of leadership need to change if they want to have any hope of unleashing their people. Leadership needs to be as adaptive as the organisation they are seeking to create.


From 23-24 October in 2018, +6000 leaders from the most exciting brands, largest enterprises, startups, media and governments will attend our largest show to date at the RAI Amsterdam from over 120 countries worldwide for three days of inspiring stories, networking, and FUN.

Past Speakers

We bring you the visionaries, the movers & shakers and the hard-edged thinkers shaping and unleashing tomorrow's world of work. The CEOs, CIOs, CHROs and leaders from the world’s most innovative enterprises, the people and organizations that have been there and done it, the ones who can and will share the challenges they had to overcome to get where they are today speak and attend our events. More than that speakers at UNLEASH will share their passion for people, for life and for the power of transformative technology and how it can unleash the power of people!

Startup Expo

UNLEASH is host to the world’s leading Startup Competition on the Future of Work and Technology. First staged in October 2011, it has successfully hosted eight editions in total, including four in Amsterdam, two in London and two in Paris. As the show has matured, what started as pro-bono work is now the must-attend show for startups; it’s where they learn how to pitch their product to fans and critics alike including entrepreneurs such as Arianna Huffington and Sir Richard Branson, thinkers and analysts like Josh Bersin, Gary Hamel and Simon Sinek, as well as investors, vendors, media - and perhaps most importantly of all - the organizations they wish to serve.

Venue

Known for its openness, Amsterdam is one of the world’s most multicultural cities, a leading financial centre, and a major arts and cultural capital.
