With its 470 high-ranking representatives from the most important global brands and companies, the dmexco Conference 2014 will juxtapose like no other event forward-looking visions with real business potential in the international digital economy. For more than 200 hours, newly designed and larger stages at the dmexco Conference 2014 will be used to discuss all of the relevant topics and trends that are leading to the creation of completely new digital business approaches, potential, and strategies. A special highlight of this year's conference program involves the use of many new innovative conference formats that were especially developed for dmexco, and which will ensure a more extensive multimedia experience for trade visitors.

For example, the entertaining Hot Chair dialog format promises to deliver valuable insights when "Digital Prophet" David Shing from AOL answers questions posed by members of the more than 700-strong audience during the "Influencer at a Glance" event (September 11, 4:25 pm, Debate Hall).

The Ubercloud panel "Technology Driven Creativity or Technology Is Almost Nothing without Creativity" will feature Jeff Benjamin (JWT), Steven Simpson (Starcom Mediavest), Victor Wong (PaperG), and Karl Wooley (Framestore).

A very special dmexco Conference 2014 highlight will be the "Women's Leadership Table" (September 11, 3:55 pm, Congress Hall). The event will bring together major female players in the digital economy, such as Ashwini Karandikar (Amnet/Dentsu Aegis Network), Yunah Kim (Locket), and Heidi Messer (Collective[i]) for a discussion about "Smarter Technology for Smarter Advertising."
