Introducing our amazing NEXT22 venues!

This year, all NEXT22 venues are located either on or close to the world famous ´Reeperbahn´, which once again provides the iconic backdrop for the amazing NEXT experience. As you’ll see from the map, all venues are within walking distance. Take a closer look at them below.

This is where it all happens:

Schmidts Tivoli

Direct on the Reeperbahn and next to St. Pauli’s iconic Davidwache police station, this ornate theatre is almost 150 years old. Here, the main stage plays host to our keynotes on Thursday and Friday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. Registration starts at 7:30 am on Thursday and 8:00 am on Friday.

(only on Thursday).

Reached by an eye-catching glass lift offering views over the Reeperbahn strip, GAGA is the NEXT22 networking hub. High above St. Pauli, the club opens its doors at 08:00 am on both NEXT days. Our NEXT networking hub offers talks & workshops, demos, a co-working space and networking areas with free coffee and other beverages. Come along, mingle with the NEXT crowd and meet the NEXT Premium Partners. And don’t forget to check out the legendary GAGA parties.
