In 1995 LIFT presented 30+ companies from China, Brazil, the UK, France, Mexico, Tunisia, France, Japan, Canada, Romania, India, South Africa, Bali, Germany, Australia, Algeria, Denmark, Turkish, Kurdish, and the U.S.A.

By LIFT’95 the Learning Programme was integrated into the main programme of festival events and has remained so ever since. The first Business Arts Forum was also took place in that year.
