Frequently Asked Questions

 


Hamburg@work is the digital cluster in the north of Germany and the network for a new world. We are a platform for all companies wishing to actively implement the digital transformation – across all industries and business clusters. We bring the right people together, online and on-site at our events. We combine activities into common topics, experiences, objectives and problems during the digitization of core processes in companies. Hamburg@work thus offers its members a clear orientation and noticeable added value for their entrepreneurial activity and exploits its own thought leadership for comprehensive knowledge transfer.
The Hamburger IT Conference is Germany’s largest IT management congress for CIOs and IT decision-makers in companies that apply the technology. IT producers and IT suppliers can only acquire tickets to a small extent and only as Premium Plus Members of Hamburg@work. Since 2002, the conference has been examining current technology and sourcing trends. The highlight topics include strategies and best practices for digital business models, groundbreaking Industry 4.0 approaches and the management of globally distributed IT systems.
For a good two decades, the initiative Hamburg@work stood for the digital transformation of the media and digital industry in Hamburg at the point where content and technology intersect. In 2014, the explosive expansion of the digital transformation in all areas of business led to a reorganization of the subject areas. Since then, the location initiative has been concentrating on companies, institutions and stakeholders of the digital and media economy under the name of nextMedia.Hamburg and with a horizontal cluster approach. The organization nextMedia.Hamburg is supported by the local authority responsible for culture and media, Hamburg Kreativ Gesellschaft mbH and the association Verein Hamburg@work (e.V.). The local authority office for media continues the function of cluster management for the area of media and IT business together with the representatives of the initiative. Today, Hamburg@work is the digital cluster in the north of Germany, which is organized by private business through the association Hamburg@work (e.V.). The influential network for a new world supports companies in forcing the pace of digital progress - diagonally and horizontally through all industries and business clusters. Hamburg@work combines activities into common topics, experiences, objectives and problems during the digitization of core processes in companies, without defining the industry.
The Hamburg IT Conference is the meeting place for the “Who’s Who” of German IT managers. As the only major IT management congress, it is fully tailored to the interests of IT user companies. To make sure this is also reflected in the participants, apart from the organizational partners and the Hamburg@work members, no other producers and consultants are admitted. The so-called IT producer tickets are therefore not freely available for sale.
The Hamburg IT Conference has long since evolved into the leading national congress. We exploit the tremendous potential of the event and the locational advantages in Hamburg beyond the IT Conference – as part of the IT Executive Club of Hamburg@work (e.V.), a division of the association. Members of the club are CIOs and IT managers of companies that apply the technology. Access to the Club is not open to the public and can only be established by a personal invitation from one of the initiators of the IT Executive Club. In collaboration with the IT users based in Hamburg, the IT Executive Club has taken on the assignment of creating a platform for further reinforcing and promoting exchange and networking within the industry.
Since 2017, Hamburg@work has been inviting international futurologists, scientists and opinion leaders to talk on the future trends within the economic, political and cultural arenas. They explain the digital transformation over a range of topics and across international borders. How will digitization change our world in the coming years? What chances and hazards, for example, do face recognition, mobile payment, wearable technology and artificial intelligence offer for our economy and our lives? High-calibre international speakers answer these questions at the DISRUPT NOW! Future Summit.
It all began in 1995 with the meeting of the Hamburg onlineKapitäne on the museum ship Cap San Diego in Hamburg harbour. A short time later, the onlineKapitäne founded the support organization “Förderkreis Multimedia” as an association and entered into the initiative Hamburg-newmedia@work, shoulder-to-shoulder alongside the city of Hamburg. The bursting of the Internet bubble in 2001 brought about a return to IT, media and telecommunication. The initiative and the association evolved into Hamburg@work. Since 2018, Hamburg@work has been the digital cluster in the north of Germany. Our influential network for a new world supports companies in forcing the pace of digital progress - across all industries and business clusters.
Hamburg@work is the digital cluster in the north of Germany and The network for a new world. We bring the right people together, online and on-site at our events. Our members are companies, stakeholders and opinion leaders who are actively implementing the digital transform - across all branches and business clusters.
At the turn of the year in 2018, the association had around 1,500 members from more than 650 member companies. The number of players in the Hamburg@work network is estimated at more than 10,000.
Start-ups seeking contacts to established companies are in the right place with Hamburg@work. A sliding scale of contributions is in place for a qualified start/up at Hamburg@work, which adapts to the business development of a young company. Hamburg@work classifies “its” start-ups in a classical manner according to the four development phases of a young company: seed phase, start-up phase, emerging growth and expansion. An appropriate and affordable contribution is in place for every phase.
RECEIVE: With our free newsletter subscription you remain up to date - even without being a member. In addition to our newsletters, Basis Flex Members receive targeted invitations and information on our events for specialist and management personnel. TRANSMIT: With a Premium Membership you bring you and your company actively into Hamburg@work and thus increase the visibility of your business activity within the network. Instead of “just receiving” interesting information and participating by receiving the know-how of the others, with a Premium Membership you have the opportunity to make your own expert contributions, which we share via our communication channels. In this way, you can employ the Hamburg@work network for the benefit of your own business interests.
Should you be prevented from attending an event at short notice, please advise of this by 12.00 noon on the day before at the latest. This gives us a fair chance to allow guests to move up from the waiting list. Otherwise, even in the case of our members, we regret that we will be forced to either issue a no-show invoice for the full regular admission price or not refund any admission prices already paid. We hope you will appreciate this measure and will adopt a fair approach with regard to those guests who still wish to participate in an event.
