<< FRWRD BREAKING >> As you might already know, FRWRD is all about innovation and development. We’re working hard on innovative cases, with our community and our partners. Good is not good enough, we want the best. In order to show our best side to the world, we need time. Therefore we decided to postpone FRWRD FESTIVAL. It will not take place this June (2018), but next year (2019). This is not the end, this is just the beginning of the future. We’ll work the upcoming year even harder to give the world even more than they expect, innovations that amaze, presented during the festival of the future.
