NEXT24 theme: New Energy – Recharging our Systems

We proudly present this year's motto for NEXT24: "New Energy - Recharging our Systems".

Our NEXT Conference loves to play with its themes. Each year our team devises a conference headline that aims to both intrigue and to create friction or even brief moments of confusion. However, in 2024 we live in times that confront us with new dissonances and a permanent “new never normal” every day. No wonder we find ourselves craving clarity and a positive mindset. For this year’s NEXT therefore, we chose direction over disruption – at least for our motto: New Energy – Recharging our Systems.

We will explore the topic on different levels:

  • AI innovation and creativity as energy drivers in our companies,
  • the high-speed transformation of our energy consumption
  • our own energy levels in business and personal life.

International thought leaders from diverse backgrounds will bring their views to the NEXT stage in Hamburg. They will share their thoughts and insights with our audience of strategists, marketeers, product and experience experts on the main stage and in smaller masterclass/workshop settings. The single day main Inspiration Day will be complemented by pre-events and selected workshops for C-level-managers and partners.

Participants will leave the event with fresh ideas for their customer agenda and a reenergised mind to bring some spark back to their everyday work.

NEXT24 – the digital conference that’s part of the Reeperbahn Festival

The NEXT Conference transforms Hamburg into the epicenter of the European digital scene on Sept 19th. The focus is on the question of what will motivate consumers in the near and distant future. To this end, NEXT offers inspiration, networking and business-relevant knowledge on trends and future technologies to prepare companies for the challenges and opportunities of constant change and digital transformation. This makes NEXT a unique event in Europe for around 1,000 decision-makers with a digital agenda, marketing and product leaders, digital executives, creatives, developers, and innovative founders. NEXT is embedded in the Hamburg Reeperbahn Festival with more than 40,000 attendees where NEXT24 delegates will receive privileged access to 700 concerts, professional and cultural events.
