An outstanding IT infrastructure

For its first-class digital infrastructure and continuous further development, the darmstadtium received the first INCON Digital Infrastructure Award in 2014 and was again able to prevail against renowned international competition in 2019. Continuous investments are made in response to the rapidly changing environment. In doing so, the focus is on customer wishes and the focus of action is determined by the current and future requirements on the part of the event organisers.

Thanks to the excellent connectivity in all areas of the building, the darmstadtium can offer customers diverse and secure solutions. With 2 x 20 gigabit/s external internet connection, it is the fastest congress centre in Germany. 42 powerful switch components with 1,800 ports bring broadband network service for up to 1,500 end devices to the entire 18,000 square metres of the congress centre.

ISAL – International Symposium of Automotive Lighting –  ist ein spannendes Beispiel für hybride Events im darmstadtium. Bei dem dreitägigen Kongress mit internationalem Publikum wurden Programmpunkte vor Ort und virtuell gekonnt miteinander kombiniert. Die rund 600 Besucher*innen erwartete ein vielfältiges Angebot: Vortragsreihen und Podiumsdiskussionen, eine begleitende Austellung sowie zahlreiche Gelegenheiten zum Netzwerken.

Dank dem virtuellen Herzstück der Veranstaltung, der Event-Webapp, war auch eine rein digitale Teilnahme möglich. Die Vorträge und Sitzungen in den beiden Kongresssälen spectrum und ferrum wurden live gestreamt und standen nachträglich on demand zur Verfügung. In den Podiumsdiskussionen wurden externe Referenten aus aller Welt zugeschaltet und Teilnehmer*innen konnten mittels diverser digitaler Interaktionstools in den virtuellen Austausch in Echtzeit gehen.

Best Case ISAL 2021

The best of both worlds

Best Case Digital and Innovation Day 2020

The darmstadtium was the exclusive location and livestream partner of the fifth Digital and Innovation Day, the annual event for digital transformation in the events sector. At its event entitled “Hybrid Events – the Best of Both Worlds”, the German Convention Bureau invited participants to a virtual dialogue about implementing digital and hybrid event formats on November 26th, 2020. It was streamed from the conference room ferrum. In virtual discussion rounds, two of our staff members explained the technical requirements for hybrid events.

Our most important findings on technology solutions for digital and hybrid event formats can be found in the white paper Hybrid Events of #DigiDay20.
