  • Interest in disruptors and innovators is only mounting, as one can see from the development of the Start-up Village – a prized feature.
  • An audience that has already surpassed 40,000 trade visitors, which makes for a potent environment to generate sales leads.
  • The focus falls on advancements in advertising campaigns, digital marketing, marketing strategies, presentations, and search engine optimisation.

The annual event is normally held in September at Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany. Koelnmesse GmbH, the official organiser, ensures that the two days are packed with informative programming. Trade visitors can enter the venue from 09:30 am until 18:30 pm on the first day, and until 17:30 pm on the last day.

DMEXCO should be on your radar because you will be in excellent company with some of the best and biggest players in the industry such as Adobe, Google, and the German branch of Amazon. The exhibition also fosters newcomers in the industry through the Start-up Village, which has up to 200 new companies looking for their big breakthroughs.

We also cannot forget the diverse program that features practical Work Labs, a Speaker’s corner, Debate Hall, Congress Hall and Night Talks.


The 2019 edition occurred under the motto “Trust in you”. It focused on discussing trust and its importance to the industry. Approximately 1,000 exhibitors from 40 countries exhibited their products in six pavilions. More than 600 speakers participated in the conference program. DMEXCO19 had 9 conference formats, 4 curated stages, and over 150 seminars/WorkLabs. The conference program was streamed online for access by all participants.

The event was held in Messe Cologne from September 11, 2019, to September 12, 2019.


DMEXCO20 was the first digital version of this event. This was necessary as a change due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Attitude is important” was the motto of the edition. The motto invited decision-makers to discuss what attitudes mean to the industry. There are special features for the online premiere. This allowed registered exhibitors to invite an unlimited number of guests. This can be done for free and invited participants have exclusive access to:

  • Exhibitors' all interactive masterclasses and live sessions.
  • Chat and voice network with exhibitor employees
  • Access to the exhibitor's showroom

DMEXCO20 was held from September 23, 2020, to September 24, 2020. Attendees included over 20,000 participants, over 800 speakers and 260 partners. Over 10,000 participants attended the platform at the same time. They posted over 60,000 messages. Fifty-six per cent of participants preferred to use voice and video calls during the day of the event. An average of 230 viewers were registered for each session of the conference. The conference agenda contained 163 masterclasses.


The 2021 edition was the second digital version of DMEXCO. Like the previous year, it was necessary because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The edition set new records as it received 20,600 visitors and 600 speakers. DMEXCO21 took place between 7.09.2021 and 8.09.2021.

DMEXCO 2022 was an in-person event that took place between September 21st and September 22nd, 2022. Due to the removal of the domestic limitations, it was hosted at Messe Cologne in the absence of Covid-19 protection measures. DMEXCO22 offered solutions to a number of critical questions. One of them was the significance of digitalisation in the post-COVID era. It also addressed the future goals for the digital sector. Sustainability, digital services, and intelligent infrastructures were also important considerations. The event attracted 560 partner enterprises, approximately 40,000 attendees, and over 770 speakers. The attendees travelled from 91 different countries, while more than 50% of the guest speakers were from foreign nations.
