As an information broker and central networking platform, we are staging an absolutely top-class program that will present trends and innovations to decision-makers in the fields of marketing, media, and advertising, and also bring these people together with the leading minds of the digital world in order to provide the best possible support to companies and partners seeking to exploit the new dimensions of the digital economy," says Christian Muche, dmexco Director of Business Development, Strategy & International, and Frank Schneider, dmexco Director of Marketing, Sales & Operations. 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).

This will take place directly in special Showrooms, as well as during numerous sessions of the dmexco Conference. The influence forward-looking technologies are having on brands will be reviewed by the panel "World of Experience: How Technologies Impact the Role of Brands", which will be led by Philipp Justus from Google (September 10, 2:20 pm, Congress Hall). dmexco's Ubercloud Sessions will examine the role digital creativity plays in overall business success. 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." Here a list of some of the other leading women from the global digital economy who will be on hand at dmexco 2014: Carolyn Everson (Facebook), Anna Bager (IAB), Barbara Basney (Xerox Corporation), Tina Beuchler (OWM), Wenda Harris Millard (Medialink), Jessica Joines (Rakuten Marketing), Abbey Klaassen (Adage), Allie Kline (AOL Platforms), Shirley Lin (YeahMobi/NDP Media), Deirdre McGlashan (MediaCom), Erin McPherson (Maker Studios), Kate Robertson (Havas), Mirja Schneider (Volkswagen), Kamakshi Sivaramakrishnan (Drawbridge), Caroline Taylor (IBM), and Sarah Wood (Unruly).
