Small group tours across the Festival and a special politics panel discussion
And down the stretch we come! In just four weeks, OMR18 will be kicking off! Today we’re taking a look at some Guided Tours and our very special panel discussion on Digital Policy in the EU. But first things first: if you haven’t got your ticket yet, get your Expo or All-incl. ticket here Be sure to act fast. They’re disappearing quick and when they’re gone, they’re gone. Read on to learn more about the EU political landscape and the first few Guided Tours on the agenda for this March 22 & 23 in Hamburg.
40,000 established and aspiring marketing pros, 300 top-level exhibitors, 300 a-list speakers, 120 Masterclasses, 3 keynote stages and 2 epic parties. Sounds too good to be true, but when OMR18 kicks off at the Hamburg exhibition hall in four weeks—it’s reality. Go ahead, pinch yourself. The lineup stands. To get you ready for two epic days of networking, insights and inspiration, we’ve told you about Conference speakers once and and even twice, then we told you about our 300+ exhibitors and about some of our Masterclasses—today it’s all about Guided Tours and Side Events.
Guided Tours are insider trips across OMR Expo on March 22 & 23 in Hamburg. Online marketing experts will lead you in small groups to various thematically grouped exhibitors and giving you an inside look at the digital marketing scene. And of course, our guides will be including plenty of panache with off-the-cuff comments, impromptu rankings, personal anecdotes or entertaining stories.
This March 22 and 23 over 40,000 marketing aficionados will be dropping by the Hamburg exhibition center for OMR18. To make sure you aren’t overwhelmed by the 300 exhibitors and to help you find the exhibitors and brands that are most relevant to your business needs, be sure to take a look at what our Guided Tours have to offer. Step 2: be accepted as a participant. The registration phase starts March 5—don’t worry, we’ll remind you again before the pre-registration phase begins.

OMR gets political
When: Thu., March 22, 5:05 – 5:40
We know, we know. If you’re having a bunch of friends over for a big party, you don’t usually want to get political. But with the changing political landscape, we decided to make an exception. Mark it in your calendar.
Global policy makers are taking an active interest in online marketing and digital business models like never before. To shed light on the current state of things, we invited Andrus Ansip, Vice President of the European Commission, to the Big Picture stage at OMR18 to answer your questions. As VP of the European Commission, Mr. Ansip oversees the EU’s endeavors to advance the European market. What has become of his promise to eliminate geo-blocking within the EU? Where does Europe stand on the current digital marketplace? Where does Europe need to improve? SPD secretary general and digital-policy specialist Lars Klingbeil, Tijen Onaran, founder of “Global Digital Women” and French campaign strategist Guillaume Liegey will challenge the EU politician in this digital policy panel.
