A successful DMEXCO: Around 1,000 exhibitors from 40 countries, including the most valuable companies in the technology sector, more than 600 speakers and around 40,000 visitors attended Europe's most important event for the digital economy in Cologne this year. Under this year's motto "Trust In You", decision-makers from digital business, marketing and innovation discussed the increasingly central role of trust in the relationships between users and consumers, as well as companies and their digital services. The newly designed Future Park in Hall 9, the Demo Arena and the DMEXCO app all made successful debuts at the event. DMEXCO will be taking place at the Koelnmesse exhibition grounds once again on 23 and 24 September 2020.
Starting today at DMEXCO in Cologne, Europe's most important event for the digital economy, the industry is not only discussing the latest trends in technology and marketing, but also the digital economy's responsibility and the required foundation of trust between companies and users. For the 2019 event, DMEXCO includes around 1000 exhibitors from 40 countries in six halls and more than 600 speakers, 51 percent of whom are from abroad and 35 per cent of whom are women. In order to partially compensate for the CO2 pollution caused by visitors traveling to the fair, DMEXCO is launching the DMEXCO Forest reforestation project together with sponsors.
The final spurt: Only less than one week left, until national and international decision makers of the digital industry meet in Cologne. Stephanie Buscemi, Chief Marketing Officer at Salesforce, will open DMEXCO 2019 with a keynote speech on trust in the digital industry – true to this year’s motto #TrustInYou.

DMEXCO Survey 2-2019: Voice control, personal assistants and devices that can be operated via voice will become more important for marketers in the future. Despite its high relevance, the current DMEXCO trend survey, however, shows that the technological evolution relating to voice is only at the beginning. A possible reason is the lack of user confidence towards manufactures of smart speakers.
