The conference

re:publica is Europe’s most exciting and Germany’s biggest conference when it comes to blogs, social media, and our society in the digital age. From April 13 – 15 re:publica is going to take place in the heart of Berlin, with 2011 also being its 5th anniversary. The political and cultural, but most of all very zeitgeisty event has evolved from an informal blogger meetup to an essential date for media professionals. What once started with 800 attendees in 2007 attracted the impressive number of 2700 participants only three years later.

re:publica can definitely pride itself on portraying the digital society in every detail and being its platform at the same time. All over Europe, there is no comparable event to re:publica, which combines the afore-mentioned heterogeneity with a broad spectrum of discussed subjects, including arts, media, culture, and politics as well as entertainment.

In 2010 more than 250 speakers from 30 countries presented their ideas and projects in over 160 hours of program on a total of eight platforms. re:publica draws an audience from all kinds of professional fields – here you will find journalists and developers as well as managers, teachers, students, scientists and creative artists. They either attend re:publica out of work-related or personal interest, but most often for both reasons which creates a unique and casual atmosphere.
