Together with our partners at DHBW Ravensburg, we offer suitable candidates the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Exhibition, Conference and Event Management. This course of studies provides the basis for practical specialization in event management. Based on a good business operation foundation, the program provides students with solid training in all the trade-relevant areas.

This six-semester course of studies is broken down into a series of three-month cycles, alternating between classes at the DHBW University of Ravensburg and practical stints at our company. The program begins every year on 1 October.

The practical phase allows students to gain experience in all business-operational areas of the company, including planning, organizing and following up on trade fairs.

Practical experience includes stints in purchasing, marketing, controlling human resources and accounting as well as in the various project departments. Your own personal objectives and commitment will have a decisive influence on your individual development.

Good math and English language skills are required, as is a school leaving certificate at college-preparatory level. Further requirements include good communication skills, the ability to work as part of a team and a strong level of organizational talent.
