ProfTreff 2021 – postponed to 2022

Munich – Driving Force for Tomorrow

In view of the emerging development of the infection situation, we have jointly decided to postpone the ProfTreff 2021 to spring 2022. We assume that this is in line with the wishes of most of the participants. We will inform you in good time about the alternative date and look forward to seeing you again safe and sound and live. Thank you very much for your understanding!

It is high about time to get together in person again and we are very pleased to invite you to the live event ProfTreff 2021. This year´s theme is "Munich – Driving Force for Tomorrow" - a joint journey through the Isar-Valley. Munich is known for being unique in the field of innovations, bringing all relevant players into a fruitful exchange - from innovative start-ups to large tech corporations and investors. Let yourself be inspired and enchanted by innovative start-ups and sustainable concepts for the future of Munich. Exciting speakers await us - among others, Maria Sievert reports on the groundbreaking digitization of tissue samples, Holger Stromberg talks about sustainable rethinking in the field of nutrition presenting his new project Organic Garden.

Following, important representatives from the field of urban development will discuss the measures to be taken today and in future by the City of Munich to prepare itself for the new opportunities and challenges. What does the tech metropolis offer in the future as a host for scientific congresses and events?

Entering personal dialogues with the speakers and central players in the Munich congress industry is possible in a pleasant dinner with delicious food.

Take part in this exciting discourse on November 18, 2021 at 6:00 pm in the brand new location for Smart City concepts in the heart of Munich, the Munich Urban Colab.

The City of Munich and members of the Munich Congress Alliance look forward to welcoming you.
