DIGITAL X 2022, which transformed Cologne's city centre into the city of the future from 13 - 14 September, is history and history it has made: we would like to thank 50,000 visitors, 300 partners, 300 speakers and 90 entertainment acts for two days of pure digitisation. More than 300 national and international (top) speakers spoke on 15 stages - spread over four Cologne quarters - including Jessica Alba, Tim Höttges, Steve Wozniak, Claus Kleber and Frank Schätzing. In the brandhouses, Telekom's partners presented innovative business solutions: the KUKA tattoo robot, teleoperated driving, meat from the 3D printer and much more inspired the participants. New this year: For the first time, the World Exhibition of Digitalisation opened its doors not only to trade visitors from the B2B sector. With the free DIGITAL X Highlights Ticket, the event was also accessible to private visitors. This meant they could not only take part in selected highlights, but there were also their own brandhouses and attractions, such as the MagentaTV Lounge or the Null-Problemo Store. As the crowning finale of the first evening, the British rock giants Muse made the Cologne MediaPark shake. We would like to thank all the guests who braved the rain on the second day of the event to join us and our partners in shaping the morning.
