A Brief Introduction

Digital marketing continues to be one of the fastest growing industries and every year brings along new developments, practices, and solutions. If you want to participate in the conversation, then go to Koelnmesse and attend DMEXCO! The international expo and conference hold the distinction as the top event of its kinds in Europe to make the digital economy (or diseconomy, for short) as its subject. Every edition brings in more and more professionals with current predictions putting exhibitors at over 1000, while the audience is expected to swell to 41,000 trade visitors. More than enough reason to make the trip yourself!

An Industry Profile

What do we mean when we say digital marketing and digital economy? It’s a broad subject that’s in the process of clearer defining at work. After all, DMEXCO has been running since 2009 and in that time has created a diverse product portfolio of exhibitors. Display categories go from search engine optimization to how to adapt marketing strategies for the digital age. The accent falls on how to improve in, stay current in and adapt to an ever-changing landscape that intersects technology with business. It’s why industry leaders, agencies, and decision makers make it a point to attend the conference hosted during DMEXCO.
