Mercedes-Benz and South by Southwest (SXSW) collaborated to bring us the Me Convention. It was held from 4th to 6th September in Nacka Strandsmässan in Stockholm. Around 2,000 participants joined in to discuss the future and how different industries can contribute to #CreateTheNew.
Aside from their own event, Me Convention also partnered with STHLM Tech Fest to create this year’s Tech Safari.
Here are some of the reasons why you should join the next Me Convention.
Gain a global perspective
Me Convention has provided its audience with 105 speakers from different parts of the world. The convention has over 25 hours of presentations and interactive sessions giving the audience a wide variety of content to learn from.
Some of these notable speakers are Björn Ulvaeus, co-founder of ABBA, Mike Shinoda, producer and musician of Linkin Park, Steve Horowitz, vice president technology of Snap, Tom London, tech magician social engineer & hacker.
The different topics and the wide range of experts helped the audience gain valuable insights as well as inspiration on how the future could look like. Some of these topics include how to stay ahead in the music industry, the contribution of women in tech and how tech has changed the creative process.
Mentorship and engaging sessions
Attendees can register for a one on one mentorship with their preferred mentors, the slots are limited and the session lasts about 15 minutes.
It’s a great opportunity for attendees to ask more in-depth inquiries and to get the specific help they would need to push forward with their personal agendas or businesses.
Attendees were encouraged to network and try out interactive booths in the Me Convention base. The attendees can feel a sense of community at the base.
The Me Convention also organized social events such as exclusive dinners, movie premieres, art exhibits and after parties. As a result, attendees don’t just learn but they also have fun.
Personalize the convention with the Me Convention App
The Me Convention used an app to aid the attendees through their experience.
The Agenda of the Me Convention provided a wide range of topics in the field of tech, art, and entrepreneurship. Participants were free to roam around and attend as many sessions as possible. The Me Convention app served as the registration portal and schedule organizer.
The Me Convention App has allowed the audience to ask questions to help make the talks interactive and insightful.
