Moderators and stage hosts — what is the difference?



Each stage at re:publica will be hosted by a stage host. This means they announce the sessions, conduct the Q&As at the end and facilitate the transition over to the next contributors. In addition, our stage hosts inform the audience about important changes in the programme. They sand in an ongoing exchange with the programme team during re:publica. 

Moderators lead the discussion or conversation in a session. This requires thorough preparation. We will put moderators in contact with the speakers - if not already done by the session leader - so that a preliminary discussion can take place.
