NEXT Conference

NEXT Conference is the event for those who actively participate in shaping the digital transformation. Marketing and product leaders, digital economy executives, innovative corporations and start-ups join NEXT for inspiration and networking. Once a year about 1.500 digital minds come together to learn about the latest trends and make their company fit for the future.

More than 10 years ago, we founded NEXT Conference to spread the gospel about the digital revolution, a revolution that transforms marketing by shifting power to the consumer at an ever-increasing speed. Ten years later, we’re convinced that this transformation is far from finished. Find out what’s next – together with us – at #NEXT18 on September 20/21, 2018 at Reeperbahn, Hamburg.

Digital Fix – Fix Digital

We need to fix digital before it fixes us: How do we deserve to regain trust as companies? Do we build meaningful products that solve consumer problems? How can we redesign the digital world? Some of the questions that NEXT18 will discuss. Learn more about the NEXT18 main topic!


NEXT18 will take place at and around the Reeperbahn – the beating heart of Hamburg. For more than 150 years, the Reeperbahn has been world famous for its clubs, concert-halls, pubs, theatres, tattoo studios, art galleries and – of course – its red light entertainment!

For NEXT18 it will be a fun setting, buzzing with energy during day, and even more electric at night. The plush comedy theatre Schmidts Tivoli is already set as location for the NEXT Stage.

With more than 40,000 visitors each year, the Reeperbahn Festival with its conference is one of the most important meeting places for the music industry worldwide and Europe’s largest club festival. NEXT attendees gain free access to the Reeperbahn Festival Conference programme and receive priority access to concerts during the weekend. Reeperbahn Festival 2018 is taking place September 19 – 22, 2018.
