Christian Muche and Frank Schneider, dmexco: “Like dmexco itself, the variety of speakers and themes presented on the stages of the dmexco Conference has grown exponentially. In 2017, dmexco visitors can look forward to more expertise and more big names than ever before. That underscores the undisputed significance of dmexco far beyond national boundaries. dmexco is not only a leading national event and the one that’s most relevant to business — today it’s one of the four leading global events of the sector, next to CES, the Mobile World Congress, and the Cannes Lions. This year we are once again bringing together a multitude of the key decision-makers and strategists of the entire digital value chain — a group that is unparalleled terms of its scope and significance. The biggest brands, the most exciting personalities, the most influential women in our sector, and, last but not least, new themes and a number of additional highlights will be featured at this year’s dmexco. Our visitors will have a hard time deciding what to do first, but they will have two days to experience dmexco, which has more to offer than any other industry event. We can already say with pride that we’ve succeeded in establishing dmexco in Germany as a show that is unique in the global digital business in terms of its scope and quality.”
