The me Convention returns to Frankfurt and will be the host for participants from all over the world as part of the International Motor Show (IAA) from 11 to 13 September 2019. The successful premiere of the me Convention took place in the main metropolis in 2017. The annual conference is a cooperation between Mercedes-Benz and South by Southwest (SXSW).

A better world in the future

“#Createthenew” is the guiding principle of the me Convention again this year, which takes a look at scenarios of a better world of tomorrow. The event, designed as a future laboratory, invites the participants to be inspired by new ideas and impulses from renowned experts. The presentations, discussions, mentoring sessions, workshops and seminars focus on four future topics: science, business, society and planet.

“You just need to be accepted for who you are and be proud of who you are and that is what I'm trying to do.”
