The Online Marketing Rockstars are to host a “Podcast Night” at the Elbphilharmonie on Wednesday, November 15, 2017. Three 30-minute podcasts will be brought live to listeners and some 2,000 guests at the Elbphilharmonie. This comes amid the podcast boom in the United States and Germany. “That is reflected by the multiplicity of topics and download figures,” according to OMR.
Representative of “The Lion’s Den”
The “OMR Podcast Night” will be moderated by Michel Abdollahi. The first of three podcasts will focus on football. “The boys from 'Football MML’ will discuss the latest events in soccer. The hosts Micky Beisenherz, Maik Nöcker and Lucas Vogelsang will deliver hard hitting punch lines,” said OMR. Matze Hielscher will hold a second “talk” podcast with guest Linda Zervakis, a newcaster on ARD’s Tagesschau. Philipp Westermeyer, founder of OMR, will host the last podcast and talk about digital issues with Sven Schmidt, investor, and Frank Thelen, a judge on VOX TV’s “The Lion’s Den” show.
Tickets cost EUR 50 each regardless of seats. The podcasts will be held in the German language only.
27,000 visitors to OMR Festival in 2017
The OMR launched in 2011 with merely 150 visitors. Meanwhile, the “rockstars” have staged events in Hamburg’s Convention Centre and welcomed 27,000 delegates there this year. Tickets often sell out early. The OMR launched its podcasts in late 2015. “Meanwhile, Philipp Westermeyer has had marketing executives, start-ups, CEOs and digital experts as guests in 100 episodes with over 1 million listeners (okay, accumulated…),” said a spokesperson for OMR. Podcasts with the Instagram star Daniel “Magic Fox” Fuchs, Christian Lindner, leader of Germany’s Free Democratic Party, and Tarek Müller, founder of About You, are among those with record listener numbers.
