OMR is the platform for digital marketing from Hamburg – founded by online-entrepreneurs Philipp Westermeyer, Christian Müller, Tobias Schlottke and Christian Byza. In seven years, OMR became Germany’s leading industry platform. Their great flagship is OMR Festival, a mix between conference, fair, masterclasses and parties. Besides bringing international top-speakers to the city, reputed experts on the online world and digital transformation share the stage.

„Our targetgroup are leaders in marketing who are interested in digital and creative solutions as well as modern technology“, explains Philip Westermeyer. Since its launch in 2011, the number of attendees rose dramatically from 200 to more than 40,000. Besides organising the Festival, Online Marketing Rockstars write articles on OMR Daily, create podcasts for more than 50.000 listeners per week, publish the marketing journal OMR Report and host the biggest industry-elevant online job market.
