On 2 and 3 May, it’s finally happening: The doors of STATION Berlin will open for #MCB16 and #rpTEN. For two days, Berlin will once again be the place for media- and Net-policy debates and media-industry discussions. For the third time, MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin (MCB) will take place in parallel with re:publica. Together, the two conferences create a symbiosis that is plainly unique in the European conference landscape. The top-quality programme draws national and international experts and decision-makers from TV, film, radio, print, online, mobile, social media, politics, technology, business, culture, and academia. Visitors from at least 60 countries are expected, with a mix of participants ranging from start-up founders and Net activists to media policymakers and global industry players. This year, we expect nearly 8,000 attendees at the two events, even more than last year.
