Inspiration Hub

The Inspiration Hub is where you’ll find some of the most stimulating education and training the industry has to offer – right on the show floor. Topics are presented by forward-thinking experts and focus on issues that are genuinely pushing the boundaries of our industry and shaping its future. Here, you can count on provocative programmes split into 10 tracks designed to maximise meeting performance, raise standards and enhance your personal and professional skills. Recognising we all learn in different ways, the Hub is divided into seven areas, each with a different learning format, and offers education in both English and German with some sessions tailored specifically to young or senior professionals. With a thought-provoking agenda you're sure to be inspired, and find fresh ideas and new motivation to drive your business forward.

There's no need to book a place at any of our Inspiration Hub sessions (apart from Meet the Experts). Please do arrive early though as places are limited.
