The program posted at makes it quite clear: Under the motto "New rules - The digital shape of today's marketing" the dmexco Conference 2011 covers all established and revolutionary digital trends and developments in the marketing, advertising and media sector, which the executives of the entire marketing, advertising and media scene are confronted with in their daily business lives and which are of increasing relevance and complexity.

Hartmut Ostrowski, Chairman of the Board of Bertelsmann AG: "Digitalisation is still the most important driving force of innovation within our industry. And thus also for our growth. Anyone who wants to be successful in a digitally networked world, is advised to make sure he is networked in real life and he should exchange ideas and opinions on the most important trends. The dmexco offers the right contact partners in the right atmosphere for this purpose."

Ralf Klein-Bölting, Brand and Advertising Director OTTO (GmbH & Co KG): "The digital influence is one of the central change factors for communications with customers altogether. We have to think carefully about interactive communication formats, from push to pull communications. The dmexco is the most important online event of the year... We will be meeting up with important partners here and will gather a great deal of information and new impulses over the two days."

Marc Holden, Global Planning and Strategy Director, PHD Worldwide: "The digital influence will have dramatic effects. The trend will be towards a separation in the media agency offering -- where one side will offer bid-based media investment and even futures exchange and the other will offer innovation-led consultancy. At dmexco I want to share ideas and thinking with some of the new exciting thought leaders within the world of communications."

Christian Muche, Director Business Development, Strategy & International dmexco: "The dmexco Conference program 2011 is setting new standards! Never before has such an impressive number of top, cross-market representatives from the entire international marketing, media and advertising industry taken part in one digital event. Together with the expo, whose format has also expanded considerably, the dmexco 2011 is going to be the largest event since the inception of the digital marketing industry. There is no other comparable event for the digital industry anywhere in the world that displays such diversity and charisma."
