Why should you attend the DIS?
Our speakers will inspire you!
Our carefully selected speakers from a wide range of publishers and other media-related organisations will motivate and inspire you with their stories of change and transformation and their innovative approaches to business models and publishing in an evolving and increasingly social and mobile world of content media.
Learn from practical case studies!
Our speakers come to the DIS to share their experiences and learnings. Listen, watch, ask questions and discuss!
Get a better sense of trends and developments!
Don’t just read about what goes on - at the DIS, you hear directly from people who are involved in new trends, who use the latest developments to their advantage or help shape them, or who can help you take advantage of the latest trends.
See how app developers tap into media
Media Hack Day, the DIS hackathon, will be a chance to see what apps developers come up with over a weekend when given APIs, caffeine and prizes (without much sleep).
Get to know exciting new Startups!
The DSX (DIS Startup Xchange) will offer some especially promising startups the opportunity to present their companies and offerings to the audience. Get ideas for investments or new business models, catch a glimpse of the future or just a bit of the vibe and energy these young entrepreneurs spread – it might be contagious.
Love Startups and Berlin? Go on our Meet the Founder tour!
Meet the Founder, an optional add-on to the conference or stand-alone offering, takes you right into the offices of some of the most interesting media-related startups in Berlin. Meet the founders and discuss their new businesses or the Berlin startup scene in general with them.
Play with some new digital gadgets!
Get some hands on experience with some of the new gadgets and wearable computing accessories you may have only heard about – we’ll have them ready for you to try out.
Discuss and network with your peers!
Our speakers are great, but so is our audience! Mix and mingle with your fellow attendees, many of them high level executives, all of them professionals in magazine or other content media and related fields.
It’s truly international!
Enjoy the perspectives of speakers from many different countries as well as discussions with attendees from over 35 nations – all in one place!
Discover interesting business solutions!
Our expo area and 100 second pitches showcase innovative solution providers who may just offer exactly what your business needs to be more efficient, address issues or gain new capabilities.
It’s in a cool place!
DIS 2015 will be held in the Deutsche Telekom Representative Office in Berlin that artfully blends history with modern architecture. Transparency, ambiance, light and even the sky surround you here– no need to worry about spending two precious days of your life in stuffy hotel conference rooms!
Enjoy the vibrant city of Berlin!
Because that’s where our conference is held – right in the middle, the historic “Mitte”, of this unique city that now is one of the top centers of creativity and innovation in Europe.
Step outside your-day-to day business!
This is a great chance to ponder the possibilities, get inspiration and practical advice and deepen and widen your network – all in two days in one central location in the heart of Europe.
Because - why wouldn’t you? We’re all nice people working in an exciting industry! And to help a little with the atmosphere and networking, we’ll have some fun events lined up for the Monday evening of the Summit.
We hope to see you in Berlin in 2015!
