The attendees

Innovators from media, marketing and tech sectors converge at this premium European media event to share ideas, learn about emerging trends and see new concepts in action. Each year, DIS attracts some 600 delegates from more than 30 countries in Berlin, a vibrant, always evolving city that is also at the heart of Europe’s startup culture. Based on current registration trends for DIS2018, with delegates from more than 20 countries already registered, 2018 will be no different. 

The experience

Apart from the top-notch programme and international speakers, delegates also have the option to book for add-on experiences (more about these closer to the event), join fellow delegates and solution providers for networking drinks after the close of Day 1 programming, and more. 

We hope to see you in Berlin!
