Site visits

During the registration process for the First Stakeholder conference, you had the opportunity to register for the site visits, which will take place prior to the event on the first day. To ensure you reach the companies in time, we will pick you up at your hotel with shuttle buses. Please note that you have to stay in one of these hotels. Please arrive at the lobby of your hotel by 8.30 a.m. if you are staying in Gelsenkirchen. If you are staying in one of the hotels in Essen, please arrive at the lobby at 9 a.m. The precise departure times of the shuttle bus will be provided on the information sheet at the reception. Please ask for the information sheet upon arrival at the reception. We invite you to visit the exhibition area, which will be opened at 11 a.m. at the Grand Hall, should the capacities of the site visits be exhausted. The arrival to the exhibition area is self-organised.

Please come to the Novum Select Hotel Handelshof Essen at 9 a.m., in case you would like to attend the site visits, but you are staying at a different hotel.

A contact person will be in the lobby on 31 January to answer your questions regarding the site visits.
