What is NEU ?

In a two day extravaganza, NEU brings together bold minds from technology and science, music, the visual arts, film-making and media to explore the opportunities and challenges of our near and far future.

The inaugural NEU Festival was held 2016 in Berlin, together with the Tech Open Air (TOA) event, Europe’s leading Technology Festival. Over 1000 participated in NEU's discussions and forums and attended the legendary NEU China Night at one of Berlin’s hottest clubs, Ritter Butzke.

Now NEU is back, bigger and better.  And this time in Beijing, on August 25 & 26.
With a mix of lectures, discussions, workshops, exhibitions, concerts and club events, the NEU Future Festival will take place across some of the best venues in the Chinese capital.
