Digital Innovators’ Summit 2020 uitgesteld

VDZ & FIPP, de organisatoren van de Digital Innovators’ Summit (DIS), hebben vandaag bekend gemaakt dat DIS 2020 als gevolg van de COVID-19 uitbraak zal worden uitgesteld tot september 2020.  De summit zal nu gehouden worden van 14 t/m 16 september in Estoril (Portugal), waar gelijktijdig ook het FIPP World Congress georganiseerd wordt.

De FIPP/VDZ Digital Innovators’ Summit in Berlijn stond gepland voor dinsdag 24 maart en woensdag 25 maart 2020. Dit jaarlijkse congres wordt door de internationale magazine mediaorganisatie FIPP en de Duitse branchevereniging VDZ georganiseerd. Gedurende twee dagen komen ruim 250 toonaangevende personen uit de internationale mediawereld bijeen om zich te laten informeren over de nieuwste digitale ontwikkelingen, media businessmodellen en multimediale strategieën.

DIS2020 postponed; will now run in parallel with FIPP Congress in Portugal in September

VDZ and FIPP, joint organisers of the Digital Innovators’ Summit (DIS), are today announcing that the 2020 edition will be postponed until September. This is due to the impact of the ongoing COVID-19 virus outbreak.

We take the health and wellbeing of our attendees, speakers and business partners very seriously. The position in relation to the outbreak has significantly deteriorated in recent days, with public gatherings, mandatory quarantine and travel restrictions in place in a number of countries.

With more than 60 speakers and several hundred delegates from 30+ countries ready to attend, and with support from committed sponsors large and small, we believe it is in everyone’s interest to postpone rather than cancel the summit.

We have therefore decided to run DIS 2020 in parallel with the 43rd FIPP World Media Congress in Estoril, Portugal, September 14th-16th 2020. All existing delegate registrations will remain valid and, to thank you all for your patience and understanding, we will in addition provide free access to the FIPP Congress.

Please expect communication to everyone shortly. This will be the first DIS held outside Germany but this is only a temporary measure. 2021 DIS will be back in Berlin.

For any immediate questions, please get in touch with the following FIPP and VDZ staff members:
