For three days, CODE_n will bring together select pioneers, digital visionaries, innovation teams from established companies, scientists, and of course inquisitive visitors. This really lets “the New” come to life and take on its own momentum. Visitors of the CODE_n new.New Festival can expect an extensive conference program held on various stages. Renowned speakers will provide many highlights that are sure to turn the innovation arena into a marketplace for inspiration and exchange.

Main Stage

With an audience area of roughly 800 seats, the Main Stage provides room for inspiring insights relating to digital pioneers, disruptive technologies, corporate innovation, and breakthrough science. It’s all about digitalization, motivation, and inspiration, featuring well-known names who are difficult to meet or see speaking in public.
