The Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg (MBB) is presenting the seventh MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin (MCB) in cooperation with Medienanstalt Berlin-Brandenburg (mabb) and re:publica on behalf of the states of Berlin and Brandenburg. Participants can attend both events with one ticket. MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin, one of the pioneering media conferences in Europe, addresses questions on current market trends and developments in the digital media society as well as issues realted to media and network policy.

How can media transformation be shaped? What are the challenges and opportunities? Current questions on media and network policy, market trends and developments in the digital media society are discussed in keynotes, fireside chats and panels, and their applicability is examined in workshops and best-practice presentations. In addition, digital companies, game studios, start-ups and media innovation projects in the capital region will present their ideas, developments and business models.

MCB offers a uniquely inspiring and diverse mix of participants with national and international experts, media makers and digital natives: founders, established global players, gamers, net activists, academics, directors and managers of broadcasters and media houses, snapchatters, YouTubers, Instagrammers, media and internet politicians, influencers and developers meet to discuss mechanisms and methods of the media industry and share their experiences. The MCB counts as a compass and companion for media makers and negotiates the interface between platforms, politics and regulation.
