COLOGNE, Germany – While the original concept for DMEXCO – part trade show, part conference – hasn’t changed since its inception, the digital marketing exposition and conference (from which it gleans its name) has continued to grow organically – and dramatically, says Christian Muche, c0-founder and director of business development and strategy for DMEXCO.

While 2011 saw a record-breaking 440 exhibitors, 19,300 visitors and over 330 speakers, this year’s event saw over 870 exhibitors, 30,000 visitors and 470 speakers from all over the world within it’s 700,000-square-foot exhibition space.

“This is impressive,” Muche says. “But it’s also the awareness now this brand has in other countries and other regions of the world.”
