The 4GAMECHANGERS Festival is a flagship social responsibility initiative of Austria’s leading commercial broadcaster and digital entertainment group, ProSiebenSat.1 PULS 4. It was founded in 2016 in Austria’s capital Vienna to establish a platform where to establish a platform where influencers, rebels, visionaries and game changing personalities – who change the world for the better – meet, connect and discuss trending topics.
Since then, the 4GAMECHANGERS Festival has evolved to the most important conferences about the future – a mix of symposium, entertainment, music and innovation fair.
Hundreds of opinion leaders from all industries - technology, economics, media & entertainment, etc. - as well as other outside-the-box thinkers, futurists and hidden champions fascinate and inspire thousands of gamechangers of all ages, each year.
Our Innovation & Entertainment Court offers visitors a diverse array of activities, entertainment, refreshments and special events. Enthusiastic festival visitors have the chance to experience the latest digital gadgets such as drones, robots and virtual reality equipment at over 100 booths. At the various meet and connect areas, our guests are able to relax, network and even get to know some of the speakers.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the festival was cancelled in 2020 three weeks before the event would have startet. As a substitute for the cancelled festival and in response to the uncertain times for events during the pandemic, the 4GAMECHANGERS Studio was launched in April 2021. Ever since, we have been broadcasting our 4GAMECHANGERS TV show weekly on Austrian 24/7 news channel PULS 24 and on the streaming app ZAPPN. The shows contain the core topics of the festival as well as the game changing topics of our partners.
In 2022 4GAMECHANGERS returned in a focused edition on the big stage for the first time in Austrian media history, with the public service media company ORF as the co-organizer. With combined forces, the new collaboration pursues, in addition to the festival, a joint contribution to a strong media hub in Austria and a maximum output of public-value content for Austrian society.
