The sixth edition of TEDxHamburg takes place on June 8, 2016 in Hamburg’s Laeiszhalle, which is the venue for the fourth time. The conference, to be held in English under the motto, “Pause Forward”, highlights the importance of a pause, moving forward, reconsidering and then starting afresh especially when it comes to sustainable developments in future. The international keynote speakers from technology, entertainment and design will encourage delegates to think bigger and discover new territory.
