Frequently asked Questions

Are all events digital? Will there be events in Berlin?

Most of the events will be digital and can easily be accessed through this website. This counts especially for the Falling Walls Remote events (100% digital).

In addition there are selected events that will take place in Berlin for a limited number of participants, which also stream their session live. These are referred to as hybrid and can either be visited onsite or digitally through this website.

Last but not least, there are a handful of physical events that are held in a location in Berlin only for a limited number of participants.

The full programme, including all formats, will be published by the end of September. Please make sure to check if registration is required. You can find all relevant information in the respective programme slot of the event.
