A quick guide to Sime Land

Inspiration stage – The first hours of every day and the last hours of the afternoon Sime’s inspiration stage is proud to present international top speakers, thinkers and doers that will touch your heart and maybe change the way you look at the world forever. Amazing founders, freedom fighters, astronauts and mad scientists are just some of the profiles from earlier Sime. The format is fast-paced, fun and for real. 

Sime Summits – The Sime Summits deep dive in a technology, phenomenon, industry or function. A summit is typically a 2–2,5 hours experience with handpicked guests and thought leaders. Followed by business matchmaking, demos and networking. See agenda Day 1 and 2 above for details on which summits are already planned for November 14–15. (Additional summits might be added or changed based on participant and partner requests.)

Expert Zone – In the Expert Zone we offer the expert talk format which is an opportunity to explore and discuss a topic with experts and thought leaders in a more intimate setting during a 45 minute session. The conversations, formats and participant constellations vary for the respective topics, but the core ingredients: cutting edge knowledge; curiosity; and the exchange if ideas stay the same. Depending on the input from partners and participants 12–20 sessions will be offered during the two days. Some of the already prepared expert talks are:

–Digital Transformation – experience sharing session between industries

–The Future of Architecture and Design

–Investing in Tech

–Digitizing Customer Management

–Next Level Retail

–Corporate Innovation

–Mindshift – The world we want to create

–Internationalization

 

Matchmaking Zone – One of the most popular activities at Sime is to connect with existing and new customers, explore partnerships, meet crazy entrepreneurs or your next colleague. The matchmaking zone enables all participants to book meetings with each other, international guests, speakers, journalists or new friends. The matchmaking zone offers multiple ways to connect, from our matchmaking app, to the deal rooms with pre-arranged meetings, to curated serendipity or drinks in the matchmaking bar. Sime offers double opt-in (think Tinder for business) ensuring mutual initial interest.

Demo Zone – In the demo zone we invite our participants and partners to showcase the most interesting, inspiring, fascinating and important technologies, solutions and products. Here is where robots might flirt with you, you learn how to fly in VR, AI:s are guessing your mood or where you find your next hyper powerful CRM system. The demo zone is a must for everyone with a touch of geek in their DNA but also an important place to scout the business tools that will get you ahead in the game.

Retail Zone – At the retail zone we explore the future of retail, a sector virtually exploding with threats and opportunities as digital re-writes the rules forever. Here new technologies are mixed with the most relevant international and local speakers, experience sharing and new business models.

Social Impact Zone – Following a many year tradition Sime invites non-profit organizations and social entrepreneurs for a free, by-invitation-only, Sime experience, building bridges between the social impact sector and the business sector to address problems in society.

Mindshift Zone –Together with Klustret and the Ekskäret Foundation Sime offers a series of workshops and meditations on the inner journey to better (self) leadership, companies and ultimately society. Here superskills like understanding complexity or compassion are matched with meditation and discussions about the world we want to create. 

Party Zone – Sime has a long tradition of throwing a good party. We do this at our after Sime cocktails, at the speaker dinner and party at the home of Ola and at the ultimate Sime Party the last evening when Epicenter turns into a party zone full of surprises, artists, great food and the best audience any dance floor can wish for.
