Aljoscha Höhn
Moderator

Biography

Aljoscha Höhn is one of the event-moderators that people in Germany ask for by name. His clients include leading companies such as Facebook, Amazon, Procter & Gamble, Deutsche Telekom, Porsche and Ströer. He moderated for UEFA at the UEFA Champions League Finale in Berlin and he hosted the opening-show for the entire Helene Fischer Stadium Tour in front of 900,000 viewers. The straight-talking Rhinelander knows very well how to interact with people. That’s why he is not only the first choice for many marketing decision-makers, but also for TV networks. He presented for example the making-of production of “Die Höhle der Löwen” from VOX and he moderated at the ECHO Awards for two hours live from the red carpet. He now looks forward to being on stage at the NextM 2018 with so many inspiring speakers.
