MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin (MCB 2018)
05/02/2018 @ 10:00 - 05/04/2018 @ 17:00
MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin, May 2 – 4, Berlin
The MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin (MCB) in cooperation with re:publica is now taking place for the fifth time from 2 to 4 May 2018 at STATION BERLIN. As one of Europe’s leading media congresses, the MCB raises critical questions, sets impulses and promotes lively discussion. “Almost human – how technologies and humans adapt” will be the main theme for 2018.
In these times of rapid technical developments, video floods, virtual, augmented and mixed reality, speech recognition systems and intelligent computer systems, deciders and opinion leaders discuss at #MCB18 the ever-increasing challenges for users, companies, markets and general society. Technical transformations are now being implemented at enormous speeds and the speed of change is frequently greater than the speed of implementation. Based on this, MCB18 poses the question of whether digital services are still oriented to people or whether people must orient themselves to the new technologies.
The MCB is aimed especially at all protagonists active in media business and media politics, as well as all aiming to be completely up-to-date concerning the latest media developments, who wish to exchange information and become inspired. MCB and re:publica expect 9,000 guests this year from around 70 countries who esteem the unique mix of festival and conference as well as the complete package of networking possibilities able to break through target groups along with top-level speakers and controversial discussions.
