These included, for example, Tai Elshorst-Delofski, Claudia Herke, Sebastian Holmbäck, Ken Hughes, Dimitris Leivadas, Annetta Palmisano, Karim Rashid, Gemma Riberti, Sanjay Sauldie or Theresa Schleicher. They shared their expertise both live on site at the Conzoom Solutions Academy and for the Digital Extension, which was available to all trade fair participants for digital networking until mid-February 2023.

The Digital Extension provides an effective matchmaking tool for our exhibitors and visitors. At the same time, online events are being planned that focus on relevant topics and move the trade forward.
