Programme 2014:

    DIS 2015: Let's roll!

    While the Digital Innovators' Summit 2014 (DIS) is still fresh on our minds, we are already working on the DIS 2015, to make our next international conference for content and related media businesses even better.

    Now in our 8th year, the DIS 2015 takes place from 23-24 March (with a weekend of activities ahead of the Summit opening on the 21st!) in Berlin, Germany.

    While we work towards 2015, we now offer you the opportunity to register at our special pre-agenda rate, saving you 100s of euros of the standard delegate rate.


    Click here to register today.

    With an emphasis on digital business models, new start-ups and technologies, as well as better networking opportunities, we want to help you find opportunities and tackle challenges that media leaders are facing. Here are some of the things you can look forward to at the next Digital Innovators' Summit in Berlin!

    Hot programme topics and Insightful Speakers
    Top speakers from around the world – some well-known, others a surprise to most - will share their experience and knowledge. This is your chance to learn from the best and pick their brains!

    New Approaches
    Geek out - we'll be hosting another Hackathon - Media Hack Day that yielded some amazing new product prototypes for the media industry at DIS 2014. We’ll also tap into the Berlin Start-up scene and bring the essence and innovation from both to the Digital Innovators' Summit.

    New Tech & Solutions
    We'll bring the Internet of Things for media to you, in one place, so that you can try it out and experience it first-hand. You'll also find top solution providers that will show you the latest digital media tools and technologies in our Expo.


    Mix, mingle and share thoughts and ideas with our group of really smart and interesting people. We will help you meet more people and have more focused discussions with some new offerings and tools.


    * Feel free to browse the DIS site to get an idea of what happened in 2014, while we update the site to be ready with more 2015 information in September.


    * And remember follow us Twitter, Facebook or Google+ for updates!
