About The Speaker
Together with Benjamin Schulte, Andi is part of the duo who founded DoKomi, Germanys largest Anime and Japan Expo, and has been running it since then. What was once intended to be a small Comiket style meeting place for 400 otakus and cosplayers, has since then grown to one of Europe's largest animeconventions with over 55.000 visitors over two days (2019). Focussing on innovation and providing a backbone to fandom communities, DoKomi shaped and influenced the german and partially even the European convention community, including worldwide known events such as gamescom. He likes to share the collected insights and consults event colleagues, as well as german-japanese societies in regards to pop culture, crosscultural business endeavours and entrepreneurship.
