NextM Warsaw – the biggest marketing and technology event in Europe now in Poland!

Galit is a TechnoFuturist and an immersive space explorer. She is passionate about a future that will integrate technology into our everyday lives, but not control it. She explores the wild and imaginative side of immersive technologies, but also their impact on our cultures, behaviors and ethical issues related to them. Galit is considered a thought leader within the field of immersive tech, delivering notable talks, workshops and seminars exploring the topic. From TED to SXSW, FifteenSeonds, Slush Tokyo and BELL Labs, her insight is sought-after across the globe.

Bloomberg has predicted that Dr Kate Stone is going to shake up the world as we know it – in short, she’s a game changer. She founded the award winning lab Novalia to explore the space where traditional print and conventional electronics converge. Some people expect the future to look like the film Minority Report, but Dr Kate Stone believes the opposite – she wants to infuse our current analogue world with electronics so that everything looks like it always has…except that it can come alive through interaction. Imagine a world where teenager’s bedroom poster comes to life with the launch of a new album, or a note book that actually plays musical notes? This is the world Dr Kate Stone is creating – by adding “digital soul” to everyday flat surfaces that we take for granted.

Andrew Keen is one of the world’s best known and controversial commentators on the digital revolution. Historian and futurist. He is the author of four books: Cult of the AmateurDigital Vertigo, international hit The Internet Is Not The Answer, and his latest book How To Fix The Future. Published in February 2018, How to Fix the Future . Producer of the Keen On Democracy podcast and How To Fix Democracy video series. Andrew Keen is Executive Director of the Sillicon Valley innovation salon FutureCast and an acclaimed public speaker around the world. He is the host of “Keen On” show, a popular TechCrunch chat show, and was named one of the “100 Most Connected Man” in 2015 by GQ magazine.

Dr. Tu-Lam Pham is an international expert on social media and e-commerce.
Whether it‘s about the behavior of millennials or Gen Z, new retail, influencer commerce, direct to consumer (DTC) brands, E-Sports, Tik Tok or podcasting, whether it‘s happening in Europe, the U.S. or China: Tu-Lam always knows what the next big consumer and media trends will be and how they will affect your industry. He‘s an international keynote speaker, a podcaster and he has a very popular channel on LinkedIn, where his daily videos about the latest digital trends have received millions of views. He is also the founder of Digital IQ, a consulting and training firm that helps international brands, media companies and fast-growing start-ups to understand and benefit from the latest trends in social media and e-commerce.

Oobah Butler is an award-winning filmmaker, writer and speaker. In 2018 alone, he made three films that were viral sensations, tallying up almost 160m views to-date. His debut book ‘How To Bullsh*t Your Way To Number 1’ recently became a #1 best-seller on USA. For the most part, his work uses comedy and absurdity to comment on the modern era. For example, after releasing his film and article in which he made the shed he lives in TripAdvisor’s top-rated restaurant in London, Oobah dominated headlines globally in the climate of ‘fake news’, being interviewed on television stations all over the world. Singaporean parliament used his work as an example to inform new laws on fake news; The Washington Post penned a feature about his work. The likes of The Guardian and The New Yorker referenced it as a critique of online reviewing culture, while it was endorsed by the likes of NOMA chef Rene Redzepi and Observer food critic Jay Rayner.

Featured on Showtime’s Dark Net, the cover of Businessweek, interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, NPR, the BBC, Fox News and Wired. Purveyour of TED talks. Subject of TED talks. Chris Dancy is touted as “the Most Connected Human on Earth,” a pioneer, in healthcare technology.

Bob’s commentary has appeared in the BBC World Service, The Wall Street Journal, MSNBC, The Financial Times, The Australian, New Zealand Public Broadcastng, Fox News, Sky News, Forbes, Canadian Public Broadcasting, and many other news outlets throughout the world.

Smart mirror

„Mirror mirror on the wall who has the best ad of them all ?”… Find out whether the technology recognizes your age and gender, and several features that are designated for broadcasting relevant video ad on the silver screen.

Image recognition

It is a spectacular solution for marketers. Just try brand new technologies that allow to place ads according to specific elements from viewed photos. It is worth to see how impressive the accuracy of this data is!


Became a very popular topic even for the largest TV stations. At [m]spark TechGarden there will be an unique opportunity to meet and face Jakub “Qln” Romanowski, one of the best professional gamer and streamer in Poland. This is the best way to find out what is the marketing potential of e-sport industry.

Social Streaming

Live streaming is the next stage in the evolution of social media, the transition from static photos to sharing important moments by video transmission for friends. We will test a tool that allows anyone to join the stream – just click the link provided.


A spectacular BigData solution that presents a lot of demographic and traffic data on the map [at the level of individual buildings]. It’s changing the style of planning and reporting campaigns for the Retail and FMCG industries. Because it gives the opportunity to build consumer behavior models based on visited locations. What’s more – there is opportunity to measure increase footfall in POS after online campaign.

VR Gym

Effective example of combining technology and sport with elements of gamification. Brain is incentivised through a radical change of scenery and body is stimulated by a special EMS vest that provides muscle electrostimulation. Interesting usecase for sport and OTC brands.

AR effects in social media

You probably know many various interesting masks using Augmented Reality, available in Facebook Messenger. Since a few months they can be used for commercial purposes. Their main advantage is the real personalization of the message and a significant increase in information capacity. Engage users for a long time, especially after synchronization with the chatbot.


Bricks-and-mortar retail is rapidly adapting modern technologies to points of sale. Screens that recognize who faces them and show an incentivized message for purchase. Shelves that offer complementary products, or electronic labels that facilitate price management and display product reviews from the e-store. But these “gadgets” are useless without powerful analytics behind them.

BigData for FMCG brands

FMCG brands usually do not have direct relationships with consumers due to the dominant sales through retail networks. This significantly limits the possibility of obtaining valuable data about users of manufactured products. Is there a solution that can change this state of affairs? You’ll find out on the 5th of December.

Payment in banner ad

Poland is European leader of modern payment systems, so we couldn’t missed innovation in this area. Shortening the conversion path in purchase process is a perennial challenge for marketers – now you can pay for the product in an advertising banner. This solution is not limited only for e-commerce, also brick-and-mortar retail can use it to collect pre-orders.

Social proof of equity

People usually follow the behavior of others. How to use this mechanism to increase conversion on your website? An interesting proposition for e-stores, but also companies that collect sales leads through contact forms.

Advertising Uber

Innovations in Out Of Home advertising. Uber made each of us can earn. From now also thanks to advertisement on your private vehicle. Just register and wait for the cooperation offer at an attractive rate. The USP of the offer is settlement model – the panel presents the number of contacts generated in the real-time.
