Why it´s worth to visit Meet Magento Germany 2016
After one decade of organizing Meet Magento events in Germany it´s about time to make a change. It´s the first time in history that Meet Magento is totally independent. This leads to a new dynamic for Magento that we will see on MM16DE.
In every respect 2016 is a particular year for Meet Magento. The Meet Magento is fully emancipated. In 30 countries Meet Magento events are set. It shows the global importance of Magento and the Meet Magento is a part of that.
In more than 30 countries we see what´s happening regarding eCommerce. Germany is one of the most important and uncommon markets. There are some trends and challenges all over the world no eCommerce platform deals with. Our aim is to bring these relevant topics we see to our Meet Magento events. So, B2B eCommerce regarding ERP or supply chain management and internationalization are main topics in our conference program. Of course, the MM16DE remains the classic Magento Community Event. The massive increase of the agenda results in many organizational changes. For this reason we have a new location, a new event structure and much more.
Agenda with new focuses
This year´s Meet Magento Germany is focusing other as well as more main topics than all events in the past. We added the following topics to our agenda:
- B2B eCommerce, the integration in ERP or supply chain management
- Magento 2: migration from Magento 1 or thirdparty systems
- Magento 2: in general and specific
- Internationalization: Asia and Europe, business model, financing, how to
Our selected sessions will discuss current issues in eCommerce. Our old-school pocket plan shows at a glance which sessions you can visit to each main topic and fits perfectly in any pocket.
What is also new is our workshop format. In addition to three rooms for speeches the pentahotel Leipzig has two workshop rooms where you can learn more and discuss with other attendees in interactive courses the whole day. Topics of the workshops are for example SEO, eMail and Video Marketing as well as Magento 1 and 2.
My personal highlight: in one of our workshops Chris Kloss will analyse the hype about Snapchat and will discuss the potential of the app for companies.
Attention: For workshops you have to register separately.
This year the Meet Magento Germany will take place in the modern and young pentahotel Leipzig – for the first time. The hotel calls itself “lifestyle hotel”. Sounds promising, huh? The location that is situated in the centre of Leipzig has two floors with several conference and workshop rooms as well as space for our exhibitors.

Sponsors and supporters
Our sponsors are involved in the planning of the conference. So, as always we will have regular information standsfor the sponsors but also other opportunities to learn more about the services of the partners. In separated areas there will be the chance to hold direct talks and discussions with partners and merchants.
New sponsoring packages
Our new sponsoring packages fits in with this. This year we added some cool new sponsoring packages to our sponsoring opportunities. In addition to regular booth areas we will have round tables, a race simulator and a BBQ stand. The race simulator is planned as a gadget for all Meet Magento events worldwide. After a short training each participant will race timed laps. We want to select the best racer from among all international MM attendees – the winner of MM16 Cup. The best drivers will compete against each other on Meet Magento World this year.

For us, the new format of Meet Magento Germany in 2016 means a conference that combines the best of a 10-year-old tradition as well as new and innovative main topics that will establish the MM16DE to a particularly highlight in the scene. We are looking forward to see you in July!
