A meeting of minds, a collaboration of forward thinking, innovative and ground breaking talent, Futuro is an intimate gathering of some of the world´s most creative and passionate trailblazers from the work of technology, social media, art, music, wellness, gastronomy, and every other section of our diverse and ever expanding world.
Where better to host this evolutionary experience than Ibiza, an island which has always been known for its visionary and open minded attitude and a place to welcome, develop and grow new ideas. The event FUTURO which was held this year on 25th – 28th May saw these visionaries gather in the glorious surroundings of BEACHOUSE, Villa Los Angeles and Nassau Tanit Beach and come to dramatic finale with a spectacular sunset party hosted by the legendary Felix Buxton of The Basement Jaxx.
Over the 3 days, the guests and speakers came together to share their insights, ideas and knowledge during a series of talks, discussions, group debates, and with some mindful wellness activities thrown into the mix to calm the whirring minds at the end of each day. Enjoying paddle boarding, coastal walking and yoga to re energise and revive, plus of course fine dining at the villa, Tanit and BEACHOUSE, Ibiza is fast becoming the hub for this world class collection of dreamers, thinkers and visionaries to create and coerce their groundbreaking thoughts and actions. This fusion of creative intelligence and leisure is an ideal canvas to inspire collaborations that catalyse new ventures.
Futuro has also inspired a new base for the islands very own emerging tech venture community. A platform which is overspilling with the resources to support, inspire and encourage aspiring entrepreneurs with creative and technical development plus providing them with a network to connection and capital. David Mickler, Founder and creator of Futuro and the Beta Beach events, tells us that very soon, Villa Futuro will be a creative hub for creatives, ventures, and adventurers to both dream, work and collaborate together. The concept is to extend the ethos of Futuro to energise, elevate and enlighten, Futuro House will provide the elements to balance the mind, body and soul, which we all agree lies beneath the foundation of every successful journey.
Futuro is promising great things to this island which we live and work on and we look forward to experiencing and benefiting from their creative collaborations in the future.
