Enable yourself to #createthenew

Mercedes-Benz and SXSW invite you – to a conference without limits.

Look forward to an international lineup of 150 pioneers, thought leaders, adventurers, artists and game changers: Buzz Aldrin, Beth Ditto, Sheryl Sandberg, Amber Valletta, Neil Harbisson, Hans Ulrich Obrist! Then add inspiring workshops, a hackathon, pitches and discussions with the brightest minds of our time.

Join us for the me Convention, a 3-day event where we’ll explore the future through a lens of technology, design and art with today’s makers and thought leaders. It’s all happening September 15-17, 2017 at Festhalle Frankfurt.

Set in a spectacular venue, the me Convention transports you from the biannual International Motor Show (IAA) into a multifaceted gathering of creative, inspirational thinkers and doers. What sets it apart from other conferences is its festival-like approach that prioritizes active participation and thoughtful interaction between attendees, partners, and business – get inspiration from thought leaders, talk on eye level with them and be part of a broad discourse about the future within diversified and innovative formats.

Here’s a taste of the speakers you’ll find at me Convention: Hans Ulrich Obrist (Serpentine Gallery), Amber Valletta (Master & Muse), cyborg Neil Harbisson, Josh Rubin (Cool Hunting), Nick Foster (Google X), tech journalist Amber Mac, political strategist Symone D. Sanders, John Cohn (IBM), Rebecca Clyde (botc.ai), Kei Shimada (Dentsu) and astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
