NOAH Conference 2019 Highlights – NOAH attracts over 1,500 attendees to London


On October 30th and 31st the NOAH Conference took place in London for the eleventh time. Leading global investors, entrepreneurs, business leaders and digital service providers came together to exchange ideas at the leading industry event for the European digital economy. Over 1,500 participants gathered in London’s Old Billingsgate over the two days.

  • Top investors, entrepreneurs, corporate executives and digital service providers gathered in London for the eleventh edition of the NOAH Conference
  • Speaker highlights included Hanno Renner, Co-Founder & CEO Personio, Gilles Despas, CEO Scout24 Switzerland, Catherine Faiers, COO Auto Trader Group, Anne Boden, CEO Starling Bank

With a mixture of panels, fireside chats and company presentations, leading experts from various companies took to the main stage on both conference days. NOAH founder and CEO Marco Rodzynek opened the event with a keynote speech and also took part in several fireside chats as discussion partner, with a special focus on creating a personal atmosphere and effective dialogue.

The Workshop Stage on the first day of the conference was also very popular, with topics including the fight against climate change, the power of PR and how to bridge the gender gap.

“The participants’ response to the NOAH Conference London has been great. In general, the fantastic community that has gathered over the last two days at Old Billingsgate next to the Tower Bridge confirms how important it is to keep in touch if you want to be successful in the business world with an idea and a company. The audience couldn’t have been more diverse for such an event – and everyone is united by the need to learn from each other and to work together. These people make the vision of the NOAH Conferences a reality. A reality that we want to deepen and further develop at the upcoming conferences 2020 in Berlin and Zurich and, of course again, in London,” says Marco Rodzynek, founder and CEO of NOAH Conference.

In parallel to the program on the main stage and the workshops, more than 80 selected young companies were able to pitch on the startup stage and thus take advantage of the opportunity to meet relevant VCs and business angels in this environment.
