July 4 2019 – Eindhoven, The Netherlands


Experience what’s next

We believe marketing can be improved every day for the benefit of brands and people. That’s why we organise NextM, a marketing festival to inspire new thinking, ignite conversation and deliver expert views on new marketing opportunities. Through cutting edge international keynotes, a tech garden with the latest technology, the best music and delicious food, marketing professionals will experience how the next innovations are going to shape the future of tech, media, social and entertainment. We set the stage to dive into original concepts, innovative ideas and to continue the conversation that separates the buzz from the bizz.

This third edition is bound to be spectacular! Bring your Hoverboard and self-Lacing Nikes, and we’ll fire up the Delorean because this year we are going Back to the Future.

Amidst all the buzz around technological prosperity, AI, voice and hyper-connectivity, we’ve also become more aware of the downsides of the tech revolution. That’s why we’re going to dig deep into what we can learn from the past when we look towards the future. How can we merge proven ways of working with future technologies? How do we bring non-digital values into a digital first world?

Let’s travel back and forth in one day at NextM 2019! So get your ticket while they’re hot and meet your fellow time travellers – or better known as the first keynote speakers:
