Hamburg wants to be Germany’s leading IT metropolis. This is not only the Senate*s vision and policy, but increasingly a reality. According to the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce, more than 50,000 people were employed by some 10,000 IT companies active in the Hanseatic city by the end of 2014. In addition, 1,000 enterprises are indirectly connected to the IT industry.
Networking Essential In Digitisation
To better connect people, industries and sectors, universities, start-up hubs, new & old economy, and Hamburg’s institutions and authorities is the goal of a new congress held in Hamburg for the first time from 9-11 September. Called Solutions.Hamburg, its title acts as claim: solutions.hamburg – Building the Digital Future. At home at Kampnagel cultural centre for three days, the congress invites to share knowledge, work out concrete solutions, and to establish contacts for a stable network, standing for development and digitisation.
The network meeting is supported by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg with its cluster nextmedia.Hamburg and the Software Alliance Hamburg. Hamburg’s first mayor Olaf Scholz will officially open the congress on 9 September prior to a keynote by an IT export (tba).
