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.

“I think you’re seeing a move-back to print; a move-back to the appreciation that print is restorative; it’s actually information that you take in. We know that there was a connection between the tactile, taking in of information… so, the touching of print and the absorption of information. And I feel very confident that print will continue to evolve and remain relevant.” - Joanna Coles8th Dec 2017 Features
