The event is running a wide gamut but will focus on a number of key themes this year including artificial intelligence, biotech, virtual reality, smart cities, fintech, the internet of things, and IT security.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to take part in various workshops and sessions throughout the day. Hub will host the Innovators’ Pitch, a competition for European early stage startups in health, IoT, and mobility. Startups will pitch their ideas to an expert jury and three winners will take home €5,000 each.

“The hub conference is aimed at the drivers of the digital transformation,” said Dr Bernhard Rohleder, Bitkom CEO. “This is where visionary thinkers are sketching the digital future, startups present the latest business models and global players showcase their way of the digital change.”
