As you know, the APPICS Team has been touring the world and attending conferences and events in many different countries since last year.
Since we recently started posting german steemit posts and engaging more with our german-speaking community, we noticed that there is one event we haven't even posted about yet: the OMR!
The Online Marketing Rockstars (OMR) Exhibition takes place every year in Hamburg, Germany.
The OMR Festival is a digital marketing convention with 300+ exhibitors, 300+ top speakers, 120 masterclasses and over 40 thousand visitors.
It's not only one of the biggest conventions in Germany, but one of the largest specialized in online- and digital marketing in Europe.
The event took place at the congress centre in Hamburg - which has a total of eleven exhibition halls covering 87,000 square meters as well as an outdoor area of 10,000 square meters.
The facility hosts the biggest trade shows, concerts and other events in Germany - it is the perfect place for a convention as big as the OMR!
Even Entrepreneur & Motivational Speaker Gary Vaynerchuck was there!
The convention itself was spread over 4 huge floor areas.
Two floors were full of exhibitors - from small startups to big companies like Instagram, Facebook, Youtube and Google: every big name in online marketing and social media was represented here!
All the exhibition booths were decorated exclusively, trying to attract as many spectators as possible.

Apart from the exhibition floors, there were two large stages: Live seminars were given around development in the online marketing industry and practical insights into the world of tomorrow.
Seminars on Commerce & Digital Marketing and people-based marketing also took place.
There was also an expo stage with many speakers and entrepreneurs like Sophia Amoruso (Founder & CEO of Girlsboss), Brian O´Kelly (CEO & Co-Founder of App Nexus), and top influencers, such as Fitness star Kayla Itsines.
Whether you were looking for the latest technology, getting to know influencers, attending workshops to broaden your knowledge or even job hunting, there was something for everyone!

The convention was held for 2 days - and we had an amazing time introducing everyone to the revolutionary concept of APPICS!
We networked with a lot of top companies in the online marketing business and got to know many great entrepreneurs.
In addition, we also had the chance to talk to a few influencer and, of course, many visitors who have approached us about our eye-catching T-shirts that had a giant APPICS logo imprinted on them.
Everyone was so excited about APPICS and was eager to download the app right away!
Interesting and successful conversations accompanied us over these two days.
