Why attend?

Launched in 2007, DIS has been established over the years as the premium international media innovation conference in Europe, bringing together delegates, speakers and sponsors from around the world.


1. An incredible line up of speakers

The Digital Innovators' Summit features an unparalleled lineup of speaker from across the globe. Previous years have featured CEOs, entrepreneurs, expert analysts and influentials all of whom shared their incredible knowledge, insight and market intelligence. They deliver stories that will challenge and inspire you. The DIS agenda zooms in on latest and emerging media and tech developments, shared on-stage via standalone presentations, panel discussions and in-depth workshops. Crucially too, there are plenty of opportunities for you to ask questions and discuss developments with other attendees there.


2. Stories from across the globe

Sometimes the best stories and emerging business models come from surprising sources. DIS boasts speakers from various markets and organisations of different shapes who are creating and building new media models in sometimes challenging conditions. Over the past 10 years, more than 500 international speakers have shared insights at DIS. They've come from virtually every corner of the world, from the US to China, from Germany to Argentia, from the UK to South Korea, from the Nordics to South Africa, and plenty more. Many of the top media influencers from markets such as the US don't make the trip to Europe too often. They make an exception for DIS though.


3. Superb networking opportunities

It isn't just the speakers who will inspire you - your fellow delegates will too. Some 600 delegates from 35 countries attend DIS every year (many of them returning attendees!). DIS is like an exclusive club for professionals in media, marketing and technology from across the globe. Make use of several networking opportunities organised at or around the venue. Make connections, share experiences and create lasting business relationships.


4. Explore new business solutions at the Expo!

Our expo area offers ample networking space and showcases innovative companies who may just offer exactly the solution your business needs. DIS is also a great place to get hands on experience with some of the hottest new gadgets and accessories emerging on the market today.


5. The chance to enjoy the vibrant city of Berlin!

With cutting edge restaurants and chic new bars and cafes, historic attractions and welcoming people, Berlin is one of Europe's hottest destinations. It is a diverse city which in the recent past have seen an influx of tech businesses (incluing Soundcloud, Google and Facebook) as well as the development of one Europe's strongest startup ecosystems. If you have never visited Berlin, you should do so around DIS. Berlin has so much to offer.
