The various locations together formed the IEC campus. The Opening Ceremony took place in the Festhalle and the Farewell Party was held in the historic Palmengarten. Klassikstadt, a venue housed in a former factory, was the location for the traditional President's Dinner. Attractive spaces, productive interactions: Every pathway and lounge area offered an opportunity to get to know other participants and exchange views.

The Reinvention Laboratory: An innovative stage for the essential questions about the future of electrotechnical standardization. A place of meetings, information and presentations. A place for inspiration, discussions and visions.

The grand Opening Ceremony in the famous Festhalle at Messe Frankfurt: Here, the 1,800 guests from all over the world were given an introduction not only to the content but also to the emotional spirit of the days ahead.

The innovative “floating stage” put the audience on the terraced seating literally at eye-level with the main speakers.

Carefully choreographed show components played in many different ways with the core theme of “Connecting Communities” – a symbolic and highly emotional approach.

The Networking Evening in the Reinvention Laboratory did just what it set out to do. With finger food for refreshment and inspiring music for a great atmosphere, experts from all continents and different organisations were able to enter into conversation at a more personal level.

The traditional NC President's Dinner had also been carefully planned to maximise the opportunities for networking and communication. The result was a supremely casual and convivial evening which met with a positive response from the guests. VDE Chairman Ansgar Hinz, DKE President Roland Bent and DKE Managing Director Michael Teigeler served their international guests the local “home-made“ Hessian cider known as “Ebbelwoi”.
