    NEXT Conference 2023

    Mark your calendars: NEXT23 is approaching fast!

    Our annual conference hosted by Accenture Song and Faktor 3 is coming to Hamburg on September 21, 2023.

    With NEXT23’s theme “Let’s get physical” we’re exploring the exciting fusion of the digital and physical worlds, known as the phygital world. The phygital world is emerging as a fusion of the digital and physical, powered by AI.

    The pandemic has permanently changed the way we live and work and created new challenges. The power of digital technology is transforming the physical world, from health to robotics. LLMs and AI are transforming the workplace, automating repetitive tasks while creativity remains a human capability. It’s time to turn our attention to the physical world and embrace the paradigm shift.

    Expect a full day of networking, innovation and inspiration.
    Don’t miss the opportunity to connect with thought leaders, marketers, strategists, innovators, creative thinkers and doers from across industries.
