  • State-of-the-art technology for smooth and professional transmission of the live event
  • Interactive possibilities also for the virtual visitors to discuss and exchange ideas
  • Mobile applications for virtual and physical participants
  • Moderation and conception for both the live and the virtual event

  • Employees who are trained as Covid-19 officers
  • Creation of security concepts for events
