In 2017, SXSW in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz held the inaugural me Convention in Frankfurt – a three-day cross-cultural event uniting technology, design, and creative industries for a critical dialogue about the future. This year, me Convention moves the conversation to Sweden’s vibrant capital, Stockholm, from September 4-6, 2018 to showcase pioneers from all industries and reveal some of tomorrow’s most innovative technologies.
The unique and open platform of me Convention creates an intimate space for dynamic talks with top-tier speakers, inspiring keynotes, workshops, mentor meetings, and more. Join us to explore the 2018 themes — New Society, New Leadership, New Economies, New Creativity, and New Bionomics — plus an outstanding evening program including concerts, art exhibitions, Startup Cities Pitches, parties, and film screenings.
2017 speakers included astronaut Buzz Aldrin, artist A$AP Rocky, Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook), cyborg Neil Harbisson, Auma Obama (Sauti Kuu Foundation), monk Gelong Thubten, John Cohn (IBM), Amber Valletta (Master & Muse), and many more. As you get ready for Stockholm, experience all of the 2017 talks as well as the Mystery Talks series presented by me Convention during SXSW 2018. Stay tuned for 2018 me Convention programming announcements and updates throughout the season.
