“Trust in you” is the central motto of this year’s DMEXCO. In 2019 EMEA’s leading tech summit with focus on marketing and digital business will emphasize the importance of trust in the further development of the digital economy. Companies need the trust of users in order to offer successful products and services. Users must be able to trust that companies treat their data respectfully and responsibly. In addition the industry needs the confidence of society that digitisation will bring more advantages than disadvantages.

“Our motto this year, ‘Trust in You’, is intended to encourage each individual and the community as a whole. I believe the members of the DMEXCO community are aware of their responsibility to society, businesses and individuals. They are committed to equality and discover the benefits of new technologies and how to use them. DMEXCO in Cologne is among one of the places where people are able to do so”, says Dr. Dominik Matyka, Chief Advisor of DMEXCO.

Anyone who wants to exchange ideas with the community, enjoy additional exciting events and discounts should definitely install the new DMEXCO app on their smartphone starting in July. It not only serves as a means of identification on site, but also offers users a range of interesting networking and matchmaking functions, not only during the trade fair. The app provides useful features throughout the year, such as pre-planning or scanning people and stands as integrated lead products during the trade fair visit. In addition, users regularly receive current content, exciting deals, people news and event content.


Who’s who of the exhibitors

From AdAlliance and Adobe to Facebook, FreeWheel, Hybris, Microsoft, Outbrain, SevenOne Media, Spotify, Spryker, Taboola, Teads to Verizon Media and Xing, many prominent national and international exhibitors will again be represented at DMEXCO this year. Around 1,000 exhibitors are expected in total. “This year we are also looking forward to many new exhibitors who will be represented at DMEXCO for the first time or again. These includes companies such as Asana, AT&T, About You, Baidu, Intelligent Apps/MyTaxi and Slack,” adds Christoph Menke, Director Sales & Operations at DMEXCO.


New format for corporate venture capital

Also new in 2019 is the CVC Side Conference: for the first time DMEXCO invites managers of corporate venture capital companies to a half-day conference. Limited, concentrated and with a clear focus on strategic investments, this new format should not only inform and inspire the participants. The focus will also be on networking with each other and actively connecting with the more than 150 national and international DMEXCO start-ups.

Matthias Wahl, President of the German Association for the Digital Economy (BVDW e.V.) adds: “Trust is the indispensable basis for the success of the digital industry, because we are breaking ‘new territory’ every day. Confidence in the implementation of promising ideas, confidence in the regulatory framework and the support of politicians, confidence in the success of one’s own performance. With this year’s motto ‘Trust in You’, this claim finds a home at DMEXCO. We will be presenting everything that can strengthen confidence in the digital future”.
