The conference will take place at Funkhaus in Berlin. This iconic venue is a former East German radio broadcasting building, a relic of Bauhaus-style architecture. The Haus of Tech exhibition will be bigger and better than ever, gathering together companies like Google, Red Bull and T-Systems along with top tier startups. Due to popular demand, there will be a special themed stage for blockchain technology and an impressive line-up of expert speakers giving fascinating talks.

As TOA is all about the future of tech, work and life, it’s the perfect place to go if you want to network, invest and collaborate with international change-makers. Networking will be given special attention in the form of IRL events and via the TOA app.
