We held the first edition of Future Frontend conference in 2023 as a successor to React Finland. While we followed the lessons learned from our earlier conferences, we also iterated further on it and most importantly expanded the scope to be future oriented. The first edition held at Pörssitalo was a success and as a sponsor you can support us to make the second edition even greater. The second edition will take place 13-14.6 at Paasitorni. Before the conference, we have two days of workshops distributed to our partner companies.
International speakers with local flavor included🔗
For Future Frontend, we use a single track format with eight sessions. Each themed session has two speakers. We include leading names from the community while not forgetting local talent. The choice aligns well with our target of connecting Finland with the global frontend space.
The single track format gives each of our visitors a shared experience while removing the burden of choice. That is not to say there are no benefits to running multiple tracks but in our experience single track works the best for us while allowing to manage costs as we cover accommodation and trips of our speakers.
We do not offer speaker slots to our sponsors. Occasionally there may have been a speaker or two from a sponsoring company but that is due to the merits of the speakers, not due to a specific arrangement. We know some conferences do it the other way but this has been our policy so far and it feels like it has been a good one.
Based on the first edition, it is safe to say that Future Frontend attracts senior-level developers. The first edition was surprisingly international and we expect that even for the second edition majority of the participants might come from abroad. For the second edition, our official target is to reach between 300 and 400 attendees.
This is not to say juniors are not welcome but it seems that due to our speaker selection and positioning the conference is well suited for seniors wanting to understand what is the next thing. In our schedule, we try to include both advanced and inspirational content to keep it varied. Occasionally we also bring speakers outside of technology to keep things interesting for our attendees.
National and international visibility🔗
By supporting our conference, you will be visible both on a national and international level. Most importantly you help us push the conference to the next level as extras, such as the afterparty, are funded through our sponsorships.
Paasitorni, our amazing venue🔗
After a brief visit to Pörssitalo, we are returning back to Paasitorni as it suits our targets for the second edition better in terms of space. Based on our experience with Paasitorni, it is a flexible venue that comes with a historic flavor and often it does not fail to impress our visitors.
Your spot to shine🔗
Sponsorships are a part of corporate branding. Even if you are not recruiting, by supporting Future Frontend you are in a good company. We try to offer sponsorships at different levels with different amounts of commitment and I hope you find a plan that makes sense for you.
Often sponsors end up doing their own activities outside of a conference and we are more than happy to support you with these sort of efforts in terms of marketing for example.
Only frontend focused conference in Finland🔗
Future Frontend is the only frontend focused conference in Finland and one of the few in the Nordics. The scope allows us to include speakers with diverse backgrounds and we do our best to find sixteen speakers that give our visitors something to take back home.

Note that on top of all this, we provide a 20% ticket discount for bronze and above. This applies for any ticket type so if you are planning to buy a lot of tickets anyway, it may be cheaper to become a sponsor.
The * means we’ll let people decide whether they want swag and what kind of swag they want as we’re environmentally conscious.
