Successful
business
of the future

We received a lot of great suggestions for topics for this year’s event from last year’s participants. Thanks to you all for sharing your ideas! We gathered suggestions we received under the umbrella theme of successful companies of the future. This brings together speeches on leadership, customer experience and digital technologies. Our goal is to put together an inspiring programme that will provide a boost to your business while at the same time promoting the whole industry. In addition, AKL Summits also serve as the most important annual gathering for those in the industry in Finland– and this year will be no exception. Welcome!
