On 22 and 23 March 2018 the Online Marketing Rockstars Festival will take place in Hamburg. The festival location is the Messe Hamburg. As the name suggests, this event doesn’t want to be a fair, it rather sees itself as a festival.
This makes things a little easier and more relaxed here than they are at a classic trade fair. Just like you know it from trade fairs, numerous exhibitors will be represented at the Online Marketing Rockstars Festival. Only since 2016 is “Festival” part of the name. Previously there were only the additions “Conference” and “Expo” for the Exhibitors’ Day.
Online Marketing Rockstars Festival in Expansion
Within the last 9 years this event has grown strongly. In the first year there were only 200 visitors at the start. According to the organiser, ramp 106 GmbH with the managing directors Christian Müller, Tobias Schlottke and Philipp Westermeyer, around 300 exhibitors and 40,000 participants are expected in 2018 on an area of 65,000 square metres. In 2016 there were still 200 exhibitors, half of the participants and a quarter of the exhibition space!
Franziska von Leswinski, managing director of Fork Unstable Media and member of the board of Fischer Appelt, who will also be exhibiting at the Online Marketing Rockstars Festival, does not see the festival as a rival event to dmexco, as she said in an interview with W&V, instead she believes that both events can exist very well side by side.
Target group: Online Marketers
The festival is aimed at all online marketing people who want to keep up to date with the latest technical developments and who enjoy networking in a relaxed festival atmosphere. The Online Marketing Rockstars Podcast is recommended for those who want to know what to expect here. It is one of the best German-language media in this field and regularly hosts exciting guests.
A review of 2017 can be found on the website and on YouTube.
