Andrew “Boz” Bosworth (Facebook)
He’s one of the most important developers at Facebook and probably the coolest MoFo in all of Silicon Valley. Andrew “Boz” Bosworth was once the teaching assistant to Mark Zuckerberg at Harvard. Now the roles may have changed slightly, Boz is now dedicated to his area of specialization—Artificial Intelligence. At Facebook, Boz spearheaded implementation of Facebook’s hallmark features, including News Feed, Timeline, Messaging and Profile. His biggest accomplishment, however is inventing “Targeted Ads” in News Feed To create it, Mark Zuckerberg asked Boz to postpone his sabbatical year. Recognizing the importance of developing a mobile product, Boz agreed. The rest is history. We hope Boz finds some R&R in Hamburg—once he’s done speaking, of course. Nowadays, Boz is the VP Engineering, Ads and Pages at Facebook.
Internet master extraordinaire
One of the biggest players in the digital marketing universe is making trek number 2 to Hamburg. Entrepreneur, Investor (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Uber), author and brand, he is a consistent winner in modern marketing. “GaryVee” has over 250K subscribers to his videos on YouTube and is one of the biggest names in the scene. Gary has been here before, leaving his mark on OMR Festival 2015. In 2017, we’re stoked to see him back to Hamburg for an update on the latest in the world of GaryVee.
As a rockstar, his fame knew no heights—then he became a pilot
Bruce is best known as the lead singer for iconic heavy metal band Iron Maiden. Hailing from England, Dickinson’s falsetto and stage presence catapulted Maiden to worldwide fame across generations.
