With the new.New Festival, CODE_n is initiating an exciting event that will provide tangible evidence of the digital transformation in trending modern-day industries. The innovation festival will be held from September 20-22 at the Center for Art and Media (ZKM) in Karlsruhe (Germany).
On 6 stages and roughly 11,000 square meter, the international event will present groundbreaking technologies and allow key players from business, science, and the creative industries to forge networks. Progressive business models from the financial and manufacturing industries as well as carmakers and transportation will be presented in clusters focusing on digital topics. In addition, there will be dedicated workshop & community areas for the attendees to learn and to meet with linkminded people.
The global CODE_n CONTEST, which we introduced you to in April, will be a central component of the new.New Festival. The award show will be held on September 21.
Besides the award show and numerous side events throughout the city, the innovation festival offers an extensive conference program including panels and workshops about the topics digital transformation, innovation and startups.
