Our adventics team

Welcome to the future of the international exhibition industry

We are committed to progress and change in the exhibition industry. With our fresh perspective, we deliver innovative solutions for the key challenges of our time. We do not develop standardised solutions, but provide our partners with individual and practical results. Our focus is on the three core areas of Digital Strategy & Transformation, Event-Tech Solutions and Digital as a Service and forms a holistic approach with which we can optimally support our partners from A to Z.

 

Our aim is not to completely digitalise trade fairs and move them into the virtual world - quite the opposite! We are convinced that personal encounters and live discussions on site are still essential. However, the question is how to develop new, profitable business models in order to be sustainable in the long term. And this is precisely where digital solutions come into play as a useful addition to the traditional trade fair business.

  • Thanks to the diversity and internationality, you gain insights into a wide range of industries and topics... always at the cutting edge, always varied and exciting.
