Sometimes the best stories and emerging business models come from surprising sources. So the DIS boasts speakers from various markets who are creating exciting new business models in sometimes challenging conditions. Over the past 10 years, more than 350 international speakers have shared insights at DIS, 60 of those in 2016. They’ve come from Europe, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kenya, South Korea, and more. 

3. Hear key American execs

Many key US media and technology influencers don't make the trip to Europe too often. But they make an exception for DIS, with 100+ participating in DIS over the years – 20 in 2016 alone. From the New York-based heads of the world's leading media companies, through to the ambitious young execs from Silicon Valley’s hottest startups - DIS brings them to Berlin. 

4. Superb networking opportunities

It isn't just the speakers who will inspire you - your fellow delegates will too. DIS is like an exclusive club for high-level media executives - professionals in media, marketing and technology from across the globe. It is a great place to rekindle or make connections, share experiences and create lasting business relationships.

With its innovative restaurants and chic new bars and cafes, Berlin is one of Europe's hottest destinations. Join us for one of our social events - taking in the sights or sampling the nightlife - or plan your own agenda. Berlin has so much to offer.

6. Explore new business solutions at the expo

Our expo area showcases innovative companies who may just offer exactly the solution your business needs. It’s also the venue for DIS Early networking drinks the Monday evening, providing you with an opportunity to mingle with colleagues and solution providers in a relaxing atmosphere.

6. Play with the latest gadgets

DIS is a great place to get hands on experience with some of the hottest new gadgets and accessories, or to simply relax participating in our theatre of fun in the Expo area.
