DMEXCO Digital Spring Summit: The Future of Marketing is “Onchain” Not “Online”
Successful premiere: For the first time in its history, DMEXCO — Europe's leading digital marketing & tech event — kicked off the marketing year with a “Digital Spring Summit”. Featuring more than 80 speakers on four parallel channels, the warmup to DMEXCO 2022 presented more than 25 hours of programming. Over 6,000 members of the digital marketing community participated in the event. The key topics of the DMEXCO Digital Spring Summit were the developments in Web3 and their impact on marketing and society.
Eintracht Frankfurt, Freeletics, Snap and Twitch are announced as the first top speakers for the DMEXCO Digital Spring Summit
Piran Asci (Managing Director, KoRo Handels GmbH), Berit Bretschneider (Marketing Director DACH, BookBeat GmbH), Ellie Hughes (Head of Reputation, Freeletics), Timm Jaeger (CEO, EintrachtTech, Eintracht Frankfurt), Dr. Volker Kitz (lawyer and author on the Spiegel bestseller list), Philipp Klösel (Head of Online Marketing & Media, Peek & Cloppenburg KG), Götz Trillhaas (Managing Director, Snap Germany) and many other speakers await the DMEXCO community at the Digital Spring Summit on May 3, 2022.

Shortage of skilled professionals: lots of unfilled vacancies and a long wait for new employees
The DMEXCO trend survey at the start of 2022 showed that the shortage of skilled professionals is currently the hot topic in the communications industry. A new, representative online survey conducted by Civey on behalf of DMEXCO has now confirmed that there are currently job vacancies in almost half the companies of the marketers and communications experts surveyed. It is taking many companies five months or more to fill positions, and job ads are still frequently being used for recruitment.
#WeProgressTogether is the motto of DMEXCO2022
Mottos from previous years have included #AttitudeMatters and #SettingNewPriorities, but this year DMEXCO is taking things a step further. The company is inviting its community to come together on September 21 and 22, 2022, under the motto #WeProgressTogether with the goal of not only discussing progress in theory, but also how to translate it into real life and help it to continue evolving. What will progress look like after the pandemic? How can we shape it to deliver positive and profitable results? What role can and must the digital industry play in society to make this happen, and how will this impact how we interact? These are just some of the topics that will be discussed by the more than 500 international top speakers at the exhibition center in Cologne.

DMEXCO Trend Survey: the shortage of skilled professionals is the hot topic for 2022
Diversity, sustainability, and data strategy: these topics dominate the public debate on digital marketing. But in practice, one particular issue concerns marketers and communications experts for 2022: the shortage of skilled professionals. This finding has emerged from a representative online survey conducted by Civey on behalf of DMEXCO. Next, in second to fourth place, are finding new revenue streams, New Work, and logistics problems.
