Hype, hype, hooray? From agile marketing to digital platforms to XR Experiences - marketing has never been more exciting, marketing has never been more complex. But what is still being hyped today as the success model of the future may no longer be relevant tomorrow.

According to the motto "It's not about the Hype. It's about new Growth and Change." the IBM iX agency family invites customers, partners and industry experts to an exclusive event in Berlin on May 21st 2019: the IBM iX Digital Day.

IBM iX is one of the leading digital agencies worldwide - with more than 40 iX studios and agencies such as Aperto, Bluewolf, ecx.io and Plantage iX, which have belonged to IBM since 2016. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland the teams work at eight locations at the interface of strategy, creativity and technology and develop new business models, convincing customer experiences as well as digital platforms, services and products.

At the IBM iX Digital Day, participants can expect insights and real experiences from companies, start-ups, technology providers and IBM iX experts on trends, tools and best practices: Which technologies can really drive innovation and growth? What is the best customer experience? How does a marketing and sales organization need to change to succeed in the digital age?

In the morning there will be a keynote speech and panel discussions with inspiration and concrete examples. In the afternoon, breakout sessions offer the opportunity to work on concrete questions and to exchange ideas on challenges and learnings.
