  • Which trends will dominate the most relevant social media channels in the future?
  • How does a brand become a brand loved by the community?
  • Why is transparency absolutely crucial for the entire industry and how can the next viral hit be achieved?

Rezo, along with content creator Jonas Ems and business angel and guest judge of the German TV show Die Höhle der Löwen (Shark Tank) Diana zur Löwen, will be there.
