Presenters and stage hosts—what is the difference?



Each stage at re:publica will be hosted by a Stage Host. This means he/she announces the sessions, conducts the Q&As at the end of a session and leads over to the next item on the programme. In addition, our Stage Hosts inform the audience about important changes in the programme and other special features at short notice—they exchange information with the programme team during re:publica.

Moderators usually lead the discussion or conversation in a session. This requires thorough preparation. For preparatory talks we will put the moderators in contact with the speakers—if not already done by the session leader.
