WHAT IS WorldHostingDays?

WorldHostingDays is the global event series for the cloud services and internet infrastructure industries. The main event is WHD.global, a week-long festival that happens annually in Germany. It’s where leaders come together to understand how all digital technologies fit together to shape our current world and our future.

WorldHostingDays has been around since 2003 and was originally focused on the hosting industry. Over the years, attendees have come from a wider range of fields, and the hosting industry itself has needed to adopt a more robust array of technologies. With its unique programming and atmosphere, WHD.global is now the main global event for cloud services and internet infrastructure. It features more than 120 presentations and 200 exhibitors that bring you the most cutting-edge digital innovations, and topics spanning the entire range of digital technology and culture.


WHD.global

WHD.global is a seven-day festival celebrating digital technology and online creativity. More than 6,500 attendees come to WHD.global, located at Germany’s largest theme park, Europa-Park, to gain a clear picture of cloud services and internet infrastructure. It’s the world’s largest event of its kind.

Now in its 13th year, WHD.global has always been a fun an engaging event that’s been essential in helping attendees understand how all digital technologies shape our world. This year, we have must-see presentations and exhibits, a full schedule of activities and huge musical acts. It’s all happening in Rust, Germany, at Europa-Park from March 25 to 31, 2017. You can’t miss this event!

Eugeny Naidenov

CEO & FounderULTIMATE GUITAR
In 1998 Eugeny Naidenov posted a few simplified music tab notations for his favorite Guns N’ Roses songs and changed the world of bedroom guitar heroes forever. He was home on break from studies in economics at Kalingrad University in Russia and decided to build his own Home page website and posted those “tabs.” Within 24 hours his new site had 30 visitors — with no advertising or marketing — and he knew that he was on to something. Naidenov has done nothing else since then except work to refine and expand his product to keep all those closet guitar rock-gods happy with a library of guitar tabs reaching over 800,000 songs.

Mikko Hyppönen

Chief Research OfficerF-Secure
From F-Secure's headquarters in Finland, Mikko Hypponen leads an elite team that has unearthed some of the world’s biggest online threats. Among the many viruses he’s found include the infamous Storm Worm, and the Blaster Worm which caused a severe power outage in the North-Eastern US that left 32 million people in the dark. Be has also led classified briefings on the Stuxnet worm, an enormously complex worm aimed at sabotaging Iranian nuclear enrichment facilities. He's widely regarded in the industry and was named one of PC World’s 50 Most Important People on the Web. He's also one of very few security researchers with a reputation that has gained mainstream attention. He was the subject of a Vanity Fair profile, and was listed in Foreign Policy's list of Top 100 Global Thinkers. With professional experience in security research stretching back to the early 90's, Mikko has a wealth of knowledge and continues to take a forward-looking approach as new threats emerge, and as governments, corporations and criminals become more sophisticated at using viruses as weapons of extortion, theft, fraud, and surveillance.

FounderMindGeek
Fabian Thylmann started his programming career right out of school in 1997 by founding a company focused on statistical analysis and high-traffic websites. He then started the Manwin Group (now MindGeek) in 2004 which he grew to be the largest adult entertainment operator in the world in just five years. The sites in its network included YouPorn, PornHub, MyDirtyHobby, Brazzers and others which generated over 16 billion hits per month combined. Fabian stepped down from the company and sold his stake in October 2013 to focus on investing in early-stage startups through his new company, SN Invests, and to operate a co-working space in Brussels called SN-Cube.
