Experience Day 2023 Recap

    On April 27, around 320 guests gathered in the business area of the Mercedes-Benz Arena to experience the first Experience Day with us, to learn and to network.

    After just 3 months of planning and organizing, on this last Thursday in April, the time had come – the Experience Day took place. Decision-makers and digital affines from SMEs, employees of the DigitalNativeAlliance and sponsors listened to the presentations, discussions and master classes by people who have already achieved great success in digital transformation in their field.

    Stephanie von Unruh, for example, gave a transparent and detailed insight into the transformation of the NordwestMediengruppe – from a traditional newspaper publisher to a digital marketplace. Matthias Gebhard of outdoor brand BERGFREUNDE shared the company’s journey towards true sustainability, a topic that has never been more relevant and generated exuberant enthusiasm

    But panel discussions, for example by Christian Ruf (VfB Stuttgart), Ralf Pressler (TSG Hoffenheim) and Björn Schick (smart Europe) on the topic of efficient data use, also provided real added value, as did the masterclasses from our numerous sponsors, including our main sponsor Pimcore, who sent their highly entertaining and experienced CEO Dietmar Rietsch onto the Experience Day’s big stage.

    Another highlight was the location, because at which other digital event can you take selfies in a huge soccer stadium or look out over Stuttgart’s idyllic vineyards from the sun terrace? After almost 8 hours of learning, networking and discussion, more than 250 Experience Day participants went to the Stuttgart Spring Festival. Here, all guests could end the evening in the Maier Loge in the Göckelesmaier and review the day with delicious food and plenty of drinks.
