Pioneers and experts in the lifestyle sector are meeting up for the first time at Tendence on July 2 and 3 in the Messe Frankfurt Forum. The conference, which has been organised by Digital Apartment and sponsored by Messe Frankfurt, is aimed at lifestyle innovators and start-up companies, as well as established professionals and sector experts.
Special emphasis is being given at the conference to four subject areas: Digital, Product, Retail and Service. CEOs, innovative start-ups, digital companies, retailers, purchasers, associations and influencers will be meeting in Frankfurt to network and discuss their ideas and experience.
Alongside practice-based keynote speeches, the agenda includes numerous lectures and discussion panels. Well-known speakers from Germany and abroad, including Gerald Schönbucher (real.de), Stefan Smalla (Westwing), Stefan Edl (Facebook), Friederike Klasen (Kochhaus), Henning Besser (DJ Phono/Deichkind) and Maximilian Pohlmann (Shopping24 Internet Group), will be on hand to present the latest information and discuss best practice in the lifestyle industry, in both lectures and workshops.
Pioneers of Lifestyle starts at 6 pm on July 2 in the Messe Frankfurt Forum with the Captain’s Dinner. The evening kicks off with a keynote speech followed by two fireside chats. Attendees can then continue their discussions over the evening meal.
July 3 begins with breakfast at 8 am and another keynote speech. Participants can then expect a full day, packed with a diverse programme of thought-provoking lectures and an award ceremony for “Start-up of the Year”. Each of four selected start-ups will get a chance to present their innovative business models in a ten-minute pitch to a high-calibre jury, followed by a five-minute Q&A session.
