DMEXCO 2017: New Year, New Concept
Last year, more than 50,700 people attended DMEXCO, the Digital Marketing Exposition and Conference, in Cologne, Germany. This year, however, the event counted a total of 40,700 visitors and 1,100 exhibitors in attendance. This decline in the number of visitors was nonetheless, intended.
Before the event this year, many discussions were held regarding the new pricing policy. The organizers aimed to attract a more relevant audience and limit the huge number of visitors attending. Both exhibitors and guest speakers were eager to find out whether DMEXCO would offer a different experience this year, considering the event’s new approach. There has already been a notable buzz about the event online. Exhibitors and visitors are expected to share more feedback over the next few days.
