Why Gather?

The World Needs More Diverse Meeting Grounds
- That's why we founded Gather...

To gather culture, science, tech, business and the public sector in one place, with the singular goal of stimulating collaboration and change.

Gathering People Fuels Innovation

We believe diverse perspectives brought together with guidance can manifest into tangible change and development. With this in mind we created Gather Labs.

Goosebump Moments are the Ones we Remember

We want you to have fun and to create unique memories. This is why we added the weird, the wonderful and the outside thinkers with the culture programme in our agenda.

Gather Labs

Gather is more than a conference. Our ambition is to get you involved to co-create inspiring ideas and tangible solutions to drive innovation. All of this happens in the Gather Labs. There are three different Gather Labs; Theme Labs, Solution Labs and Motivation Labs

 Gather Conference

Gather Conference is a two day conference with more than 50 program options based on Gathers five core themes. The sessions will take place across three different stages where you will be inspired by speakers and performances. In our smaller room sessions named Boxes, thought provoking open conversation is facilitated. The conference will also invite some of Stockholm and the world’s best food and beverage producers.  All of this will be framed amongst major international art and culture projects to stimulate your creativity.

 Gather Music Festival

Gather Music Festival is Gather's contribution to the night and to the City of Stockholm, open to everybody. Three nights, across multiple venues in the Nordic capital will be filled with Swedish and international acts in a mixed composite of music, art and performance. The goal of GMF is to create unique mergers of music, technology and design at some of Stockholm's premier clubs, galleries and venues.
