Online Marketing Stories
Our blog Rockstars Daily is our home for digital marketing topics. Whether it's industry analysis, profiles of success stories, ridiculous growth hacks, ad tech, mobile or social topics, exclusive interviews—either in print or as a podcast—or a myriad of other categories, the OMR editorial team delivers interesting, inspiring and intriguing content on a regular basis. Our mission is to create unique content not found anywhere else.
The annual Rockstars Festival is the event of the year for marketing pros and aficionados. Part expo, conference, Masterclass, side events and, of course, party, the OMR Festival is the centerpiece of OMR. Since its inception six years ago, the two-day event taking place in late February or early March has grown from 200 visitors in year one to over 16K visitors last year. Attendance is a must for marketing makers that want to network with other professionals and stay up-to-date in an ever-changing industry. Save the date… Rockstars Festival 2017. March 2 to March 3, 2017. Join 25K of your peers. #OMR17
Our Rockstars Conference draws upper-echelon speakers from the digital marketing world. Past speakers include legendary skater Tony Hawk, Buzzfeed founder Jonah Peretti, self-made man Gary Vaynerchuk, Pinterest founder Evan Sharp and Wired founder John Battelle. In addition to established heavy hitters, the annual conference welcomes pioneering companies on stage, such as Mediakraft, Sociomantic and Yieldify, among others. None of our speaking slots are sold commodities. When night falls and the festival draws to a close, the legendary Aftershow party begins.
Since 2015, the Rockstars Expo has been a part of the OMR Festival. The trade fair brings together 200 exhibitors from the world of ad tech and digital marketing with 25K industry professionals. There are also Masterclasses, our Expo Stage, Guided Tours, side events, a food court and several surprises. And the first day of the festival culminates in our classy expo party.
The OMR Podcast is Germany’s largest podcast on all things digital marketing, and whatever else that’s piqued our interest. OMR founder Philipp Westermeyer sits down with makers, experts and friends. It’s entertaining brain food guaranteed to cure the boredom of your drive-time commute. In 2016, we launched Podstars —our marketing network for podcasts in Germany. It’s our platform that brings together advertisers and podcasters.
Rockstars Aftershow party in Cologne
The Rockstars Aftershow party at the dmexco in Cologne is our party for our industry. Held every September, dmexco—the digital marketing exposition and conference—is our stage to do what we do best: throw a boss party! Top acts from the European music scene, performing at a top location—it’s our way of ensuring first-class networking.
We began as an event organizer dedicated to bringing people together and to give new impetus to the industry. With the goal of combining information and entertainment, we hold events on topics of current relevance in our industry. In 2016, we held the FirstScreen Conference, which we put on with Berlin-based AppLift. In 2015, we added two more events to the calendar: New Platform Advertising, a conference for advertisers interested in the marketing potential of rapidly growing platforms, and Traction Day, where we discuss topics like traffic growth and growth hacking in detail in a seminar-like atmosphere. But it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Stay tuned for more events.
