To us, The Conference is all about stopping for a moment. We believe that it’s important to look, listen and analyze what’s going on.

To get a holistic view of our fascinating and fast moving world The Conference is split in three parts. Each of them focus on subjects that are crucial for the development of the media industries today and in the future.

The three main subjects at this year’s The Conference will be human behaviornew technology and how to make it happen. They are more thoroughly introduced in our blog.

Like last year, each main subject is broken down into four break out sessions. Some topics we’ll look closer at are open innovation, collaborative consumption and mobile.
