Preeminent statesman and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Henry Kissinger guest of honor at the ceremonial opening dinner of the 2016 Axel Springer NOAH Conference Berlin

To press release overview

Axel Springer NOAH Berlin, the leading event of the Internet and digital economy in Europe, begins this year with an exceptional guest: Henry Kissinger will speak to selected conference guests at the traditional opening dinner in Axel Springer’s Berlin publishing house on the eve of the conference, Tuesday, 7 June 2016. The host, Mathias Döpfner, CEO of Axel Springer SE, will moderate the discussion with the former long-term U.S. Secretary of State and Nobel Peace Prize laureate. Last year Arianna Huffington welcomed the guests to the exclusive dinner circle in the Axel Springer Journalists' Club.

Mathias Döpfner: "To welcome Henry Kissinger on the eve of this year’s Axel Springer NOAH Conference is a special honor for all of us – he has probably been the most influential United States diplomat since the end of the Second World War, and, through his experience, an important adviser to many U.S. presidents stretching back to John F. Kennedy. We are eager to hear his assessment of the global political situation and its challenges today.“

Digital challengers and established market leaders from a variety of industries will meet once again in the Berlin Tempodrom on 8 and 9 June 2016. The more than 100 speakers this year will include: Travis Kalanick (CEO, Uber), Dieter Zetsche (Chairman, Daimler), Olaf Koch (CEO, Metro), Jessica Federer (CDO, Bayer), Oliver Samwer (Founder and CEO, Rocket Internet), Rubin Ritter (Co-CEO, Zalando), Greg Ellis (CEO, Scout24), Herbert Hainer (CEO, Adidas), Florian Gschwandtner (CEO and Co-founder, Runtastic), Ralph Hamers (CEO, ING Group), Valentin Stalf (Founder and CEO, Number26), Simone Menne (CFO, Lufthansa), Joachim Hunold (Founder, airberlin), Rüdiger Grube (Chairman, Deutsche Bahn), Nicolas Brusson (COO & Co-founder, BlaBlaCar), Henry Blodget (CEO and Editor-in-Chief, Business Insider), Mathias Döpfner (CEO, Axel Springer), Thomas Ebeling (CEO, ProSiebenSat.1), Luciana Lixandru (Principal, Accel) and Klaus Hommels (CEO, Lakestar).
