Over 20,000 participants, more than 800 speakers, 260 partners, and a conference agenda spanning over 160 hours. This year’s DMEXCO @home, which is taking place on September 23 and 24 for the first time in a purely digital version, will end with record attendance and a finale concert by Mousse T. DMEXCO will be held next year on September 22 and 23, 2021.
Digital channels will once again receive a greater share in the media mix of German companies in 2021. Search engines, social networking sites, and audio/video platforms will be the biggest winners here. In contrast, the advertising budgets for print and outdoor advertising are set to fall further. According to the predictions of over 500 surveyed decision-makers, spending for advertising overall will decline slightly in 2021. Those are the main findings from a representative online survey commissioned by DMEXCO and conducted by Civey among specialists in the fields of communication, marketing, and advertising in Germany.
Only five days to go until the big event: on September 23 and 24, DMEXCO @home will be taking place – in a purely digital version for the first time. Participants can look forward to almost 700 top speakers, presentations, masterclasses, and lots of entertainment over the two days: the biggest line-up in DMEXCO’s history. In addition to a club session with Mousse T., there will be workouts with popular influencers. Additional speakers have now also been announced: Deena Bahri (CMO, StockX), Michael Lohscheller (CEO, Opel Automobile GmbH), Mark Read (CEO, WPP), Adam Singolda (founder and CEO, Taboola), and Hans-Joachim Watzke (CEO, Borussia Dortmund).
Steve Clayton (Chief Storyteller, Microsoft), Garry Kasparov (former world chess champion and Avast Security Ambassador), Won-Jin Lee (EVP and Global Head of Software Services and Partnerships, Samsung Electronics), Sylvia Mulinge (Chief Customer Officer, Safaricom PLC), Janine Pelosi (CMO, Zoom Video Communications), Ilona Scott (Head of Brand Marketing, YouTube EMEA), Nate Skinner (SVP, Global Marketing Leader for CX, Oracle), Jason Spero (VP Global Performance Media, Google), Maxine Williams (Chief Diversity Officer, Facebook), and journalist, podcaster and book author Linda Zervakis: the DMEXCO @home Conference Agenda is constantly filling up with lots of top speakers, and not just from the digital industry.
This year’s motto for DMEXCO @home – Attitude matters – is more relevant than ever in light of the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. During this crisis, many companies have demonstrated a clear attitude and shown themselves in a positive light through social commitment and engagement. In keeping with the motto, we have published our first-ever DMEXCO report this year, featuring a comprehensive study on the topic of attitude and interviews with experts Dorothee Bär (German Minister of State for Digitalization), Eike Wenzel (head of ITZ, a German institute that researches trends and the future), and Claudia Hartwich (Microsoft). The survey explores what challenges await the digital industry, what role attitude plays in various business areas, and what difficulties can arise in this context.
More leads, more return on investment, more awareness, and more customer contact. DMEXCO @home – the digital version of DMEXCO 2020 – has something special in store for its online premiere: registered exhibitors can exclusively invite an unlimited number of guests to their virtual presence at DMEXCO @home for free.
Tim Alexander (CMO & CXO Deutsche Bank), Alexander Birken (CEO Otto Group), David Fischer (CRO Facebook), Thomas Ingenlath (CEO Polestar), Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro (Director, Intelligent Robotics Laboratory Osaka), Julia Jäkel (CEO Gruner + Jahr), Claire Hughes Johnson (COO Stripe), Aaron Levie (CEO Box) and Alicia Tillman (Global CMO SAP), plus around 500 other top speakers and more than 100 hours of programming – all that and much more await DMEXCO @home attendees on September 23 and 24 from 10am to 10pm (CET).
DMEXCO 2020, originally planned as a physical and digital event, will now be held in completely digital form, as ‘DMEXCO @home’, on September 23 and 24. In addition to the physical DMEXCO, Koelnmesse will also be cancelling four events in other sectors that were scheduled to take place in Cologne till the end of October.
