Become a partner


D-Congress 2021 October 28

This year’s theme: “We shape the future of trade together”. We live in a time of uncertainty where who and what we choose to trust is changing rapidly. Where digital commerce is growing at a record pace and where those who have the ability to navigate and quickly change their business have the best conditions to create sustainable growth. Discover how to excel your business in a changing world and how to use trust to succeed. At D-Congress in Gothenburg, we bring you some of the most successful speakers and partners on the subject.

This year’s keynote speaker, Rachel Botsman, is a leading expert and author on the subject of “Trust”. She is the first Trust Fellow at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School, she has been recognised as one of the world’s 30 most influential management thinkers by Thinkers50, one of the Top 10 most influential voices in the UK on LinkedIn and honoured as Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.

Rachel designs and teaches courses on trust and technology. She is also an advisor to boards, senior leaders and governments around the world, helping organisations to create trustworthy cultures. Her work has been widely published in The Guardian, Financial Times, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, Wired and other publications.

A sustainable venue


A sustainable meeting place

In a world full of challenges, people need to meet. To share ideas, to make new developments, to grow businesses and help cultures to flourish. Without meetings, these things couldn’t happen. But travel, exhibitions, restaurants and stays leave an environmental footprint that we can’t ignore. Our work on sustainability goes back several years and is under constant development.
