where inspiration begins

Ready to shape the future? Our unique conference offers you the chance to hear from global leaders and pioneers across art, music, technology, science and participate in once-in-a-lifetime conversations. This makes sense: the me Convention itself is a type of conversation, stemming from a collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and SXSW.

This year’s conference will take place in Stockholm from September 4-6 at the stunning Nacka Strandsmässan, a 19th century building which once acted as a car factory. We’ll be hearing from 100+ speakers about recent developments regarding five essential topics: New Society, New Leadership, New Economies, New Creativity, and New Bionomics. Plus, we’ll be getting up to speed with some of the world’s most innovative (and underacknowledged) tech hubs with our Startup Cities Track, giving you insider perspectives from experts based in Sofia, São Paulo and beyond.
