LOGIC WILL GET YOU FROM A TO B. IMAGINATION WILL TAKE YOU EVERYWHERE.

Albert Einstein

Innovation Day brings together executive board members, managing directors, brand managers and international top speakers from the worlds of business, media and politics. Along with highly relevant content, formats designed exclusively for decision-makers offer guests the opportunity to enter into a dialogue and share their personal experience at the very highest level.

 

In 2020 we will be discussing the future of brands, communication and innovation with THE POWER OF RETHINK as the overarching theme – on a digital stage for the very first time.

 

And in the evening, we will be switching from the virtual realm to a real-life location in Munich where, during an exclusive gala dinner, the CMO of the Year Award will be presented to Germany’s best Chief Marketing Officer.
