This is NEXT:

NEXT gets discussions flowing on topics imperative for the future: How does innovation in the age of machines affect everyone? How do human behaviour and customer expectations change? And what does this mean for us, the drivers of digitalisation, and our companies?

/ at our global gatherings in Hamburg and Berlin with up to 2,000 innovators, digital leaders, and creatives from around the world

/ at our special interest events on topics such as Service Design, finance, and mobility
