World’s leading festival for business and creativity.

Pause Fest is an independent, industry-driven movement with a mission to bring diverse intelligence together to fuel the next generation forward. Our innovation focus is about people, mindset and culture - for a good purpose.

We’ve been described as 'Innovation Capital', 'Octoberfest for business' and 'Woodstock for digital natives’. In 2020, we welcomed over 9,000 attendees and 10,000 online live viewers with over 80 media outlets from across the world. In fact, over the course of ten years, our event has seen 80,000 movers, shakers and creative change-makers come through its doors.

In 2021, we’re self claiming ‘MTV for innovation’ title and we can’t wait for you to experience the next level of online event experience built on UX. Less FOMO, more INSPO.

Go global, or go home. Be fast.

Pause Fest 2021 Online is stretched across 14 days to accommodate your new lifestyle. We believe in less FOMO, more INSPO. We have an amazing range of new tickets for you to binge on, meet new clients, reskill and do business. The earlier you get a ticket the earlier you enter the Pause Club - the festival hub.
