Think About! is a tech conference which focuses not only on technology but also on design and their social impact. It creates a safe and inspirational space for everyone, and we really mean everyone.
Our belief is that society needs diversity in order to continue a healthy and critical dialogue. For this reason we want to bring together diverse individuals and enable them to challenge themselves and each other.Subscribe to newsletter

Think About Technology!
Technology has become a part of nearly every aspect of human life. We will present quality talks from domain experts in software development, hardware and software hacking, internet of things, artificial intelligence and many more.
Think About Design!
Nearly everything we use today is designed - whether it’s an app to monitor a menstrual cycle or self driving cars. Beside others we will cover topics such as design ethics and product and UX design.
Think About Society!
Technology & design continue to shape humanity as a whole. Topics like discrimination, social and economic equity, and participation in our society are more important than ever. We want to create a platform to talk and discuss these topics.
The Conference will take place in a cozy cinema right in the center of the Ehrenfeld district in Cologne. It provides us with two big halls for talks, unlimited drinks, free popcorn and regional organic catering services.
But don’t worry about not seeing the sunlight: The Cinenova has a sunny outdoor area as well.
