The NEXT brand addresses the key digital trends in design, marketing and product development, while endeavouring to explore their impact on human behaviour.

On September 24, 2021 the NEXT team invites you to the first conference in two years: The NEXT Conference Limited Edition! Our digital festival will be celebrated via livestream from Hamburg’s Schmidts Tivoli theatre on the world-famous Reeperbahn – with keynotes, discussions and music. NEXT takes a look into the future – how will new technologies, markets and people’s behaviour evolve in the post-pandemic era?

Our plans are closely aligned with the German health authorities’ Corona regulations, so live seats are strictly limited. All off them have been allocated by now and our on-site participants have been notified via email.
