We are thrilled that you are joining us for this year’s conference. Please find below some information to help you prepare.

What can you do before the conference kicks off?

  • Plan your conference schedule. It frees up your time on site so that you can move quickly to the sessions you are interested in. You can find the timetable online. In addition, you will find a printed program in your conference bag that will be handed out at the registration.
  • There is no official dress code. Wear whatever makes you feel the most comfortable.
  • Bring your business cards. You will meet people that you want to stay in touch with after the conference.
  • Have empty space available in your luggage. This will allow you to bring giveaways home with you.
  • Don’t forget: Berlin is a large city and you’ll need some time to get from point A to point B. Check all important information about the venue and how to get there here.
