2 DAYS ++ HYBRID EVENT ++ DIGITAL PLATFORM ++ HIGH QUALITY TALKS ++ EXPO ++ DIGITAL PITCHES ++ DIGITAL PIONEERS
Over the last years, ruhrSUMMIT has successfully brought together start-ups with companies and investors from all over Europe and is considered as one of the largest B2B start-up event in Germany. In 2019, we welcomed over 5,100 participants over two days at the analog event in the Jahrhunderthalle in Bochum. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, #ruhrHUBTEAM faced a major challenge in 2020 as physically oriented events of this scale were simply not allowed.
In 2020 things have changed and we operated fully digital on a virtual platform with several livestreams from the charming Jahrhunderthalle and united 3,150 participants – successfully.
This year, we are combining the best of both worlds and organize ruhrSUMMIT 2021 HYBRID!
Speaking about digital conferences… this is ruhrSUMMIT 2021:
✅ By designing and programming a fully digital platform adapted to the ambience of the industrial hall in Bochum, ruhrSUMMIT 2020 managed to virtually connect start-ups, corporates, digital natives & immigrants from all over the world despite the challenging circumstances.
✅ This year, the platform comes up with a fundamentally improved functionality and user experience to ensure a smooth flow over the 2 days of the event. In 2021, the B2B start-up conference will be HYBRID. That includes a digital and interactive, as well as an analog part on-site at the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum.*
* The number of participants at the analog part of ruhrSUMMIT will of course be reduced due to Covid-19. By June 14th 2021, we will send out an info to all participants who will be able to participate on the on-site event.
✅ Digital participants can not only individually arrange their preferred content and formats on an interactive online platform, but also interact in live discussions and get directly in touch with others via video chat.
Our goal is to successfully bring innovators and doers together – true to our motto ‚MEET SCALABLE B2B START-UPS`‘!
