Change Reloaded


Whether you’re talking about new viewing habits, new communication channels or new consumer behaviour – rarely has the present been so strongly influenced by change as it is today. And never before have there been so many opportunities to rethink communication and brand management. In this context, boldly embracing challenges and developing visions becomes a formula for success. At the 11th German Brand and Design Congress we view brands as guiding beacons in the stream of change, and design as a means of actively shaping this change. We invite entrepreneurs, creatives and researchers from all sectors of the economy to join us on this platform and take part in a stimulating dialogue.

The title "Change reloaded!" indicates that change and transformation must be sustainable and that processes require continual modification. The technological upheaval of digitalisation affects us all. Yet only those who develop a clear vision of how to apply technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), will reap success and market acceptance. Only those who convey a clear brand message will entice customers to embark on a "Customer Journey": a metaphorical journey, whose success depends in turn onn the design quality of the user experience. At the congress we will hear from distinguished personalisties who will speak about there issues from their own practical experience.

The German Brand and Design Congress is aimed at decision-makers and creatives, in particular from medium-sized businesses, from business sectors that have a focus on design, as represented by many members of the German Design Council Foundation as well as winners of the German Design Awards.

The Congress provides the people behind the brands (from industry, trade, SMEs and agencies) with inspiration and guidance on current topics of interest. The event also offers ample opportunities to meet and exchange views, at the networking breakfast before the Congress launch for example.

The German Brand and Design Congress 2019 will be held on 14th November 2019 at the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart. This spectacular building by Dutch architects UN Studio will provide a prestigious and inspiring backdrop for the Congress, while also illustrating how important visionary images and concepts are in branding.
