Connecting and Creating Value

The dmi:Symposium Munich 10-11 March at the distinctive BMW Welt Business Center will be a fast-paced, immersive one-day event hosted in partnership with bayern design, The Bavarian State Ministry, and Munich Creative Business Week (MCBW). The Symposium theme is “Connecting and Creating Value”. Short Keynote Sessions and small group Breakout Sessions will focus on new ways that Design connects to humanize technology, simplify complexity, and drive innovation to add value in large organizations, small and medium enterprises (SME), startups, and the public sector. The dmi:Symposium is part of the 9th Annual MCBW, the largest design event in Germany. Over 200 events and exhibitions will be hosted throughout Munich for more than 70,000 visitors.

 
Attend to meet, learn and exchange ideas with other Design, Business, and Innovation leaders.

 

If you have interesting insights, business cases, or methodologies to share at the Symposium we'd like to hear from you. Submit a speaker proposal for a 30-minute Keynote Session or a 60 to 90-minute interactive Breakout Session by sending a short description of your topic here.
