Following the annual theme "What the World Needs Now," Burda's innovation conference is launching a new online format in February with prominent speakers.
London, New York, San Francisco – like every year, the DLD team toured the world with the so-called DLD Salons between the major conferences (this year: Munich, New York, Bayreuth, Brussels, Tel Aviv, Berlin). The aim of these networking events is to maintain the international DLD network and establish new contacts to exciting speakers. In addition to London in October, the team led by founder Steffi Czerny went to the USA with stops in New York and San Francisco last week. From 20 to 22 January, the digital elite will be once again gathering at Burda's flagship conference DLD Munich 2018 for the 14th time already.
From New York to San Francisco
The DLD Salons were well attended: around 200 invited guests met for breakfast in New York. After an intro by DLD founder Steffi Czerny and DLD chairman Yossi Vardi, the latest topics of the tech and start-up scene were discussed intensively. Despite pouring rain in San Francisco, 90 guests followed the invitation of the DLD team including former Bill Clinton consultant and heart specialist Dean Ornish, lawyer Gary Reback, Google Vice President Product Bradley Horowitz and photographer Rick Smolan. The DLD Female Leadership Lunch the following day was ideal for strengthening DLD's worldwide women's network.
