Over the years, the DIS has been established as the place in Europe to hear about the future of media and technology from the innovators who are driving change. 2016 will be no different, with a programme (which we have started work on) including more sessions, fireside chats and deep-dive workshops, not to mention networking opportunities, than ever before.
In 2015, more than 600 senior executives from more than 35 countries congregated for this premium event in Berlin, a vibrant, always evolving city that is also at the heart of Europe’s startup culture.
This set a record for the DIS and makes it the largest conference of its kind in Europe. Continuing a trend of the past 5 years, we expect an audience of well over 600 senior media executives at the event in 2016.
There are several reasons why you should book now to be at DIS 2016.
