The first edition of the me Convention will be held in Frankfurt am Main from Friday, 15 September until Sunday, 17 September. For three days the picturesque ambience of the Festival Hall will be dominated by 'New Creativity', 'New Urbanism', 'New Leadership', 'New Creation' and 'New Velocity'. Experience interesting talks, panel discussions and workshops with speakers from the fields of architecture, tech, science and journalism. Apart from engaging discourses you can also look forward to a packed evening programme in the Festive Hall as well as in the nearby Frankfurt railway station district, where bars, restaurants and galleries will be opening their doors as part of the Urban Hot Spots.
The Friday evening promises a very special highlight. That is when the fabulous She's Mercedes Night, featuring a very special live act, will take place at the me Club, the official party venue of the me Convention. For on stage will be none other than the wonderful Beth Ditto with her powerful voice.
Who could possibly better fit the idea of the She's Mercedes initiative? Beth Ditto is what we call a genuine 'power woman'. For almost 17 years the American fronted the multi-award-winning band Gossip, in addition to being the face of numerous campaigns. She has not only graced the covers of the most influential fashion, lifestyle and music magazines, but has now also launched her own fashion collection. The idea was 'Body Positivity', away from the 'size zero' that often dominates the world of fashion. The singer, who has been married to a woman since 2013, is also active within the LGBT community. Recently, she and her partner married for a second time in Oregon following that state's final decision in favour of the legality of same-sex love.
So who can be surprised that even an institution like Karl Lagerfeld has long since fallen under the charm of Beth Ditto? Not so long ago, she also paraded on the catwalk for him. Since the band split up, Beth Ditto has worked as a solo artist. Her debut album 'Fake Sugar' has been in the record shops since June – and the sound is as good as ever. If not even better!

After that, all you need to register is the me Convention app, with which, having purchased your ticket, you can guarantee yourself one of the coveted seats.
