Berlin – The Gateway to Digital Europe
Venues: SUPERMARKT, PLATOON Kunsthalle and Factory Berlin
This year Social Media Week Berlin is celebrating it’s 5th year, marking a milestone achievement that has been reflected in an all time high number of event submissions coming from all over the world!
THE FUTURE OF NOW – Our global theme for 2014, intent on exploring how new media and technology are impacting our lives – diving into everything from startups and enterprise to creativity and ethical economies.
The Gateway to Digital Europe – Locally, Social Media Week Berlin is a grassroots initiative that is not just about technology; but also about people, what motivates them, how they connect and why certain ways of connectivity work better than others for the German market and its evolving culture.
Below is the overview of our Tracks. Scheduling is being confirmed and can be found here. Registration for all events opens 20th August.
Our 2014 Program Director, Jewell Sparks, has been working diligently to curate a dynamic, yet customised program specifically suited for the current technology/social climate in Berlin. Her goal? To curate a program that “Bridges the Gap,” and “Minimizes Barriers to Entry” between Germany, Silicon Valley /San Francisco, and the rest of the world – pertaining to both culture, innovation and technology while being sensitive to the cultural uniqueness and preservation of the local community.
Among just a few of the proposed topics Jewell has been wading through cover areas such as privacy, analytics, and IoT (Internet of Things) as it relates to IoP (Internet of People) – the list goes on and this is just a taster of what our content-packed Programme will be offering this year.
