Christian Muche, dmexco Director Business Development, Strategy & International and Frank Schneider, dmexco Director Marketing, Sales & Operations: "Our declared goal is to represent all of the relevant innovations, technologies and trends and to systematically network the increasingly expanding segments of the economy. In the process we want to bring together the best thinkers of the global digital industry at dmexco. The Conference, in combination with the Expo, offers the perfect stage for this project. And this year it will once again be available at the very highest level! Our lineup of participants was already incomparable, but once again we've managed to make it even better. In addition, we're delighted to be able to offer our visitors in 2014 a completely redesigned conference experience with even more space and comfort. dmexco is thus underlining its role as one of the few significant worldwide digital events with a genuine business background that has successfully occupied a leading position at the global level. Today dmexco occupies an influential position not only in Europe but also in the USA and increasingly in the Asian region.
