New features on the DMEXCO platform available earlier than expected

Participants will be able to try out many of the new features on the DMEXCO platform at the “MarTech Trends 2021” digital conference on August 11 and 12, 2021. Organized by marketing-BÖRSE, this conference features a wide range of speakers from the digital industry and will be the first test event to use the new platform. The focus will be on marketing technologies, new tools, and best cases. Designed as a community solution, the digital platform will be hosted by DMEXCO, so that participants can create their profile now and then use it at DMEXCO @home as well. The networking tools are also ready and waiting for the community to use.

“Our DMEXCO conference is just as diverse as the industry itself; we have moved on from simply focusing on hard facts like marketing trends or new technologies. Sustainability, diversity, and new work are topics that affect all industries – and ours in particular. As digital experts, this allows us to lay the foundation that we need to keep developing our economy and our society. We are moving toward an open, digitalized world”, says Dr. Dominik Matyka, Chief Advisor at DMEXCO.
