Following the successful launch of the international conference format IFA+Summit – the Next Level Of Thinking in 2014, a second edition is due to take place. Last year, more than 30 international opinion formers, senior executives and entrepreneurs discussed trends and ideas for a digital future.
Already, a number of high-profile international speakers have confirmed their participation. The IFA+Summit will take place in the CityCube on the Berlin Exhibition grounds parallel with IFA on 7 and 8 September 2015.
Once again, the event will discuss innovative ideas, plans and visions regarding transportation, health, Big Data, the home, design and new entertainment developments.
TVs, hi-fi systems, smartphones, refrigerators and coffee machines: nowadays all these products no longer serve a particular purpose but are lifestyle products instead. Design is more than a development aspect of a product and its technology and reflects a lifestyle. Ultimately, it is often the main factor influencing a purchase.

Hybrid Design looks at new areas of design that emerge as result of a combination and synthesis of surroundings, objects and services within networked systems, as defined by production, sales, use and recycling in the communication age.

In a society dominated by Web 2.0 and social media, consumers assume the role of producers. Nowadays anyone can make a film, compose music and produce a news story. In future, who will produce content, what will that content be and who will it be for? What are people prepared to pay for reliable news stories and entertaining content?
