NEXT13: International keynote speakers to come!

THE NEXT13 line up gets better and better! More international keynote speakers sign up as this agenda-setting conference for the digital economy draws nearer

We are excited to announce that further international speakers will be joining us at NEXT Berlin on April 23 & 24! Tech-blogger and author Robert Scoble (Scobleizer) will give insights into the field of context, one of the major topics at NEXT13. While Israel’s grand seigneur of entrepreneurship, Yossi Vardi, will share his vast start-up knowledge – collected over 40 years. Additionally Thomas Kiessling, Chief Product and Innovation Officer of our partner Deutsche Telekom, will explain how the company will position itself in digital growth markets like M2M, cloud or media. And Caroline Drucker (Etsy), very well-known in Berlin's start-up scene, will talk about e-commerce best practice. They will be joined on stage by Neelie Kroes (Vice President of the European Commission), Harper Reed (Obama’s CTO for the re-election campaign) and more than 100 international speakers.

For the first time, NEXT Berlin will take place at bcc, right in the heart of Berlin. There, we will have three different stages dedicated to the latest trends in the digital economy. The conference motto this year is Here be dragons! Together with 2,000 agenda-setters from all around Europe we will discover paths leading into unexplored territories. There might be dangers lurking out there, but for the brave, there are many opportunities to come. We see these in the areas of invisible technologies, new interfaces, the growing importance of context and in the exciting fields that digital technologies have opened to makers. Now is the time to get started. At NEXT13, all of us will discover what will change the way we do business next! Join us!
