What is NEXT Conference?

Please note: In view of the Corona crisis and its effects, no analogue event is currently taking place. Instead, we are offering talks with international speakers in our digital show WHAT’S NEXT.

The NEXT Conference is a two-day knowledge festival that addresses the key digital trends in design, marketing and product development, while endeavouring to explore their impact on human behaviour. Every year, marketing and product leaders, digital economy executives, innovative corporations and start-ups join NEXT for inspiration, knowledge transfer and entertainment in several unique venues along Hamburg’s world-famous ‘Reeperbahn’.
