After showing the NIC - The Movie - Kaj Kunnas (our conferencier) entered the stage. After a word from the Mayor of Nykarleby, Mats Brandt, he invites the NIC board members to explain what this is all about - and how it all got started.

Our guests

The Sofa-Discussion

The discussion promtly began with wide-ranging discussions. Everything from daring to fail, being invited to Buckingham Palace, AI, overcoming your fears - and doing what you believe in.

Wrapping up

What a show.

The show attracted almost 500 people - all of which left the event with the feeling that anything is possible, even in a tiny town.
