Your Opinion Counts!

An extraordinary stage, live voting, a hot seat and passionate debates.


The Debate Stage impresses with its proximity to the action, dynamism and the special backdrop of an extraordinary conference arena. Here, the leading experts of the global and national digital economy discuss current topics in-depth – in a 1:1 dialog or controversial round, always at the highest level.

From a thematic perspective, the Debate Stage reflects the ecosystem of digital marketing and focuses on opinion-forming talks: from marketing and media to technology and the latest business trends − participants here discuss what’s currently moving the industry. Global CEOs meet the most promising start-ups, national makers meet international visionaries, creative brand-makers meet technology-driven futurists and popular up-and-coming stars and influencers meet established experts.

And the winner is …

At the Debate Stage, the best are honored − at the DMEXCO Start-up Hatch, the Seven One Pitch Day and the BVDW Challenge Award. We question the concepts of the cool people of action on the now legendary hot seat − a format you shouldn’t miss. In addition, the Debate Stage is interactive and gets your opinion right into the middle of the action: The audience’s assessment flows live into the discussions using a voting tool − and has already provided many an exciting twist.

In short: The Debate Stage is the Hidden Champion of DMEXCO.

The Debate Stage is located in Hall 6 − and offers space for more than 850 spectators.
