Special Speaker

We are #thrilled to announce that the Minister of State and Federal Government Commissioner for Digitization, Dorothee Bär, and the Bavarian State Minister for Digital Affairs, Judith Gerlach, will open the DATA festival #Online, thus publicly sharing the #Mission and #Vision of the DATA festival. This is an important sign for our industry and all those who share the #Passion for data. This shows the community that politics are working together with all stakeholders of the industry to establish Data Science & AI made in Germany in Europe and beyond. Our community can expect two exciting welcome speeches from the two digitization experts. As a Munich-based company, which is particularly keen to develop and expand the Free State and the state capital into an internationally leading location in the field of AI, we are particularly pleased that the Bavarian State Minister for Digital Affairs, Judith Gerlach, MdL, has agreed to act as patron of the DATA festival #Online.

Corona is still present and will continue to play a big role for all of us in the next months. However, our team has used the last few weeks intensively. For the event industry, strict rules will apply until the end of October 2020 (hygiene rules, contact tracking...). These and other factors have led us in the team - after long discussions - to the conclusion that we will NOT hold the DATA festival from 14.09.2020 - 16.09.2020 live and on site in Munich. Instead, we are happy to inform you that we will offer you an Online Event:

DATA festival #online – 14.09.2020 – 16.09.2020

But that's not all... mark the date for our DATA festival 2021 in your calendar! We are looking forward to welcoming you

#Live in Munich: 23.03.2021 – 25.03.2021

We are very thankful to see how the DF-Community stands behind us and believes in us even in difficult times. Thank for your patience and your continuously support.
