For the second time, TRIAD Berlin has supported the School of Design Thinking at the Hasso Plattner Institute with the implementation of the three-day d.confestival. The event combines elements of a business conference with the open atmosphere of a festival.

900 participants, 500 speakers, 350 businesses and 40 nations came together in 2017 in Potsdam and Berlin on the occasion of the 10 year anniversary of the HPI School of Design Thinking. Among them are BMW, Bosch, Deutsche Bahn, Google, SAP, Siemens, and Volkswagen. The main location of the top-class keynotes is a large circus tent. The entire campus of the Hasso Plattner Institute is being used for workshops, discussions, and exhibitions. A street food market offers food from all over the world during breaks between events.

The TRIAD Berlin supervised event is a productive platform for the international Design Thinking Community in order to network, exchange experiences, and to work on new ideas together.
