Sometimes the best stories and emerging business models come from surprising sources. So the DIS boasts speakers from various markets who are creating exciting new business models in sometimes challenging conditions.

3. Hear key American execs
Many key US media and technology influencers don't make the trip to Europe too often. But they make an exception for DIS, with 100+ participating in DIS over the years – 20 in 2016 alone. From the New York-based heads of the world's leading media companies, through to the ambitious young execs from Silicon Valley’s hottest startups - DIS brings them to Berlin.
4. Superb networking opportunities
It isn't just the speakers who will inspire you - your fellow delegates will too. DIS is like an exclusive club for high-level media executives - professionals in media, marketing and technology from across the globe.
