Here, you can check to see if your ticket is already connected to your myOMR account. Make sure you’re logged in with the information you entered into your ticket. Once that’s complete, we’re on to Step 2: your application. Check out the Event Timetable and identify the tours, seminars and Side Events you’d like to attend—be sure that they don’t overlap.

Once you’ve decided which events you’d like to attend (and are logged into myOMR), go to the Application Tool and apply for a spot in Masterclasses, Guided Tours and Side Events—you can find the Application Tool here. You can apply to attend up to 6 total Masterclasses or Guided Tours and an additional three Side Events. PRO-TIP: If you want to be guaranteed at least one spot in a Masterclass or Guided Tour, you must apply to at least three such events. The application phase runs from April 4 to April 24, 2024.

9:30 AM to 10:15 AM The CMS market was a place lacking new players and anything close to resembling innovation. Those days are over, however, as recent trends such as headless, composable and the changing significance of content management systems in the context of generative AI, have shaken up the market. New players are entering the market and disrupting the hierarchy of the established players. From headless to DXP, there are also different approaches and concepts. All this makes it easy to make heads or tails of the landscape, while answering the question "How do I choose the right CMS for my company?" seems impossible. On this tour, we will dive into the CMS cosmos together. I'll give you a compact overview of current trends, visit interesting CMS providers together and get to know their respective USPs. I will also share with you some honest insights from my many years of experience, which may help you to make the unsolvability of choosing the right CMS a little less unsolvable.
