Congress and seminars

Parallel to the trade fair, the visitors can expect a premium congress program with lectures, seminars and workshops.

More than 400 German and international participants are expected at the congress.

The congress will be interpreted simultaneously into English, an interesting fact for foreign visitors.

On both days there are 4 lecture blocks on one key subject each from the different working areas of orthopedic shoe technology. The mixture of science, biomechanical research and the practical implementa- tion in orthopedic shoe technological companies proved successful and will be continued.

The congress is bookable on a daily basis (one-day or two-day tickets). The congress ticket is not valid for seminars.


 Seminars & workshops

The seminars and workshops, mostly lasting one hour, offer concentrated know-how on a special topic and are practice-oriented. The number of participants is limited of the seminars.
We recommend early booking.




The forum is the action space within the trade fair hall, where exhibitors can present their novelties to the specialist audience and where they can get in direct contact to it. The lectures last 25 minutes. On Friday (day of the apprentices) schools will present interesting lectures here. The lectures in the forum are open and free for all visitors.
