The me Convention is returning to Frankfurt from 11 to 13 September 2019 and will host attendees from all around the world during the International Motor Show (IAA). Now in its third year, the me Convention originally celebrated its successful premiere in Frankfurt back in 2017. This annual conference is a collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and South by Southwest (SXSW).

Creating a better world

“#createthenew” is once again this year’s theme for the me Convention, which provides insight into scenarios for a better world. Set up as a future lab, the event invites attendees to explore new ideas and inspiration from renowned experts. The presentations, panel discussions, mentoring sessions, workshops and seminars focus on four future-facing topics: Science, Business, Society and the Planet.

The conference program will feature an outstanding selection of international speakers, as well as a variety of workshops that highlight emerging German talent and innovations. Speakers from the USA, United Kingdom, France, Thailand, Venezuela, Cyprus, Japan, the Netherlands and Finland have already been confirmed, including well-known experts such as Aubrey de Grey, Ashton Applewhite, Mitchell Joachim and many more.
