SCALE16: Everything You Need to Know

Psst: SCALE16 is less than one month away! What is SCALE16, you ask? Now in its second year, it’s the top international conference on digital brand growth, powered by DCMN.

Our first year was a smash hit – the conference was packed and speakers from names like AOL, Innogames and Babbel were on stage. This year it’s going to be even bigger. We’ve set our sights high and expanded the scope for SCALE16, which means a bigger audience, more speakers, and more of an international focus.

Whether you want details about the program or you’re ready to buy tickets, here’s all the information you’ll need in the lead up to the day.

So, what’s it all about?

The theme for SCALE16 is growth hacking traditional media. We started the event because we saw an information gap that needed to be filled. Yes, there are plenty of marketing conferences out there. But how many are tailored just for digital brands? How many explore how these brands are using traditional media? We found a particular niche, and that’s a huge part of why the conference has been so successful so far.

The usual logic goes like this: if you work in the digital scene, you must be using online tools only to market your business, right? Not necessarily. SCALE16 looks at how digital brands and startups are using offline marketing channels like TV, print and out-of-home to scale their businesses. More specifically, it looks at how they are doing it in a performance-driven way.

Who’s speaking at SCALE16?

We’ve been busy finalizing the program over the last few weeks and we are so excited to welcome our speakers on stage in November! We have marketing experts from lifestyle brands, gaming companies and e-commerce on the bill. The food delivery, lifestyle, games, and fintech sectors are all covered. Here is just a selection of industry leaders you’ll hear from this year:

  • Kiara Kempski, Director of Offline Marketing, and Lauren Austin, Senior Product Marketing Manager, at
  • Marina Hofmann, Global Head of Offline Marketing at Foodora
  • David Mohr, General Manager Europe at Gamevil
  • Finn Hänsel, Managing Director at Movinga
  • Julien Callede, Founder and Director of Business Development and Innovation at

They’ll all share case studies and expert insights from working with traditional media in markets all over the world. Plus, more exciting speakers will be announcing in the next weeks so stay tuned!

Sign me up! Where can I buy tickets?
