designing the future

Madrid • October 8, 9 & 10 (+11 & 12)



Spain will host the next world futurist summit on October 8, 9 and 10, 2021. HumanityPlus will be the main international organizer of this world congress. TransVision 2021, collaborates with leading associations and organizations working on futuristic concepts such as longevity extension, artificial intelligence, human enhancement and other future technologies and trends. The first TransVision conference was held in 1998 in the Netherlands.

Over the past 20 years, we have seen extraordinary progress, and we expect to see many more in the next 20 years. One wonders, what will the future bring? Science and technology should lead the way! We are now planning to celebrate in Spain the 20th anniversary of the TransVision conferences, an international summit open to people from all continents, with participants coming from the United States to the United Kingdom, from Argentina to Australia, from Africa to China, from Russia to Venezuela.

The topics covered will be very broad, from recent medical advances, to artificial intelligence and robotics. The first keynote speakers will be Ray Kurzweil and Aubrey de Gray. Additionally, TransVision 2021 will feature other keynote presentations, such as those from futurist movement pioneers Natasha Vita-More and Ben Goertzel, members of HumanityPlus and other leading institutions.
