About NEXT

With over 10,000 visitors from 40 countries, NEXT has established itself in recent years as a premier conference in Germany for the digital economy. Founded by SinnerSchrader in Hamburg in 2006, the event has taken place in Berlin since 2010. Now NEXT is returning to its roots, to merge with Germany‘s largest club festival – the Reeperbahn Festival, and to come up with a programme platform which will bring together representatives of the music and digital economy in a unique way.

From 2015 on, NEXT will be jointly organised by the agencies SinnerSchrader and FAKTOR 3, who are developing new programme formats for digital minds in companies, agencies and start-ups.

In addition, NEXT organises a personal network for digital decision-makers in the DACH region and beyond. It will continue to grow its network of CDOs with invitation only events in several European cities.
