For the ninth time, Europe’s digital capital is readying itself for the Berlin Web Week, where entrepreneurs, bloggers, developers and designers will participate in approximately 20 conferences, networking events, fairs and forums.

Running from 7 to 17 June 2016, visitors have plenty of choice of Berlin Web Week events to get stuck into.

One of them is the NOAH16 conference, a platform for leaders of the digital economy to meet and interact, and is widely seen as one of the highlights of the Berlin Web Week 2016. Hosted by Axel Springer in collaboration with NOAH advisers, NOAH16 will feature more than 100 lectures on digitisation. Although the conference is invitation only, it’s possible to request an invitation via the NOAH16 website.

Other highlights of Berlin Web Week include HEUREKA founders’ conference, Connexpo tools and the Fempreneur Summit.

This year’s Berlin Web Week will be focusing more on the business aspects of the digital economy than it has done in previous years. Events particularly focusing on this include the K5 Berlin (e-commerce), OMfin-Con (Online Marketing finance Conference) and European Venture Market (a network conference for entrepreneurs).

Berlin Web Week is a joint initiative between the State of Berlin’s Department of Economics, Technology and Research and the economic development agency, Berlin Partner for Business and Technology. Find out more via the schedule of all events during Berlin Web Week 2016.
