FutureEverything is an award-winning festival and conference based in Manchester.

We'd like to bring your attention to the upcoming conference events running in Manchester between 17-18 May and the special offer, which has just been announced.

The FutureEverything 2012 Conference http://futureeverything.org/speakers (and associated workshop events) brings together around 500 delegates from across the creative industries, new technologies, innovation, arts, public sector and academia.

FutureEverything was recently rated by the Guardian as one of the top ten international ideas festivals, alongside TEDx, 99% and South by South West.

The FutureEverything 2012 Conference looks at the next lurch into the unknown brought about by a new participatory culture that is changing our world. We see profound changes in the digital and creative sector, as well as in society at large. The conference presents the people who are changing our world and the future-thinkers who enable us to see the possibilities of such connectivity.

Conference topics include:
Participatory Media
Wikileaks and Arab Spring
Future Cities
Open Knowledge
Fab Lab Creative Communities

Three of our keynote speakers (Carlo Ratti, Rohan Gunatillake and Cesar A. Hidalgo) are from Wired Magazine's The Smart List 2012: 50 People Who Will Change The World. Additional speakers include Icelandic MP and former Wikileaks spokesperson Birgitta Jonsdottir, Bilal Randeree (Al Jazeera), Juliana Rotich (Ushahidi), Bill Thompson, William Heath (Mydex), Adrian Woolard (BBC), Juha van't Zelfde, Moritz Stefaner and more to be announced.

FutureEverything 2012 also hosts the launch of the £4M Creative Exchange (http://thecreativeexchange.org) Knowledge Hub funded by AHRC, and a celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Mass Observation Movement and the UN International Year of Co-operatives - presented with a unique contemporary twist by artists and designers working in these new media.
