11–13 September 2019 | Hamburg

6200 visitors +++ 520 speakers +++ 350 sessions


For the fifth time now, digitalisation experts from across Germany came together at the Kampnagel in Hamburg from 11 to 13 September for the event. The fact that the challenges of digital transformation have not diminished over the years since the first conference is amply demonstrated by the attendance in Hamburg once again of more than 5000 visitors and over 100 partners. And of course, mgm was there to discuss the consequences of digital transformation with the visitors.

For the third time, mgm was a Platinum Sponsor of and had put together a varied series of presentations for Strategy Day on 11 September. Countless A-list decision-makers from industry and from society spoke to a fascinated expert audience about the specific answers that their organisations had already found to the problems raised by digital transformation. True to the track title ‘Embracing digital transformation’, they focused above all on the opportunities and possibilities raised by digital change, though without trying to mask the problem areas that naturally also arise.
