Participants from 12 countries discussed central issues such as labor markets, mobility and traffic, governance, safety, and housing. Among the high-level decision makers from the worlds of politics, media, research, and culture were German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Frank Schirmacher, and Sir Norman Foster. Triad Berlin devised an unusual room-within-a-room concept with clear axes of communication ensuring that participants were integrated into the dialogue with others in any position in the room.


The conference was a great success. "Political discussions thrive on controversial issues and dense atmospheres. Urban Age offers both, " said Lutz Engelke, Managing Partner and Founder of Triad Berlin.
