What's on



DMEXCO is the meeting place and a community for key players in digital business, marketing, and innovation. We bring together industry leaders, marketing and media professionals, and tech pioneers to set the digital agenda.


Digital disruption is now ubiquitous. To get the most out of a networking conference, focus and specialisation are vital. At DMEXCO 18, you will get personalised e-mails with recommendations on how to cut through the noise and meet your business needs, from the future of virtual reality to data driven marketing. 

DMEXCO, Expo and Conference, the meeting place for digital business returns to Cologne September 12-13. Over 1,000 exhibitors and 550 speakers will address today’s digital challenges. This year election scandals, accusations of internet monopolies, e-privacy issues have shown us that the golden age of the internet is over. DMEXCO under the motto ‘Take C.A.R.E.’ will embrace the debate with a ‘C’ for curiosity - stay curious about change, ‘A’ for take Action in your own business, ‘R’ for take Responsibility - inspiration from a conference dies without responsibility for change and ‘E’ for make a great Experience. Whether you are interested in seeing how Virtual Reality can be integrated into marketing and communications from an exhibitor like Viond GmbH or the latest from industry giants such as Google; Facebook, Deloitte or hearing Kim Kadlec, Global Marketing Platforms at VISA, you will find that your business interests will be met.

The Congress Stage is the heart of the DMEXCO Conference. The leading minds of the international digital industry discuss future trends and present their own milestones, innovations and visions. 

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.

Feel. Experience. Understand. The Experience Stage takes this approach in getting closer to innovative technologies and shows − more or less on the living object − how VR, artificial intelligence, IoT and blockchain can be used to transform the business.

On the Motion Stage everything revolves around video and the moving image: The imposing LED wall offers the perfect stage for presenting moving image content in an emotional and impressive manner and providing information about the latest trends and innovations.

Start-up Village presents diverse and international topics. Surrounded by meeting units and the two Start-up stages, the successful entrepreneurial generation of tomorrow will meet here.
