CUSTOMER FEEDBACK

We're very glad that the DGU (German Urology Society) agreed with us early in the year that we would go for a large live event in Stuttgart in September. We can be proud of the result! With the support of the team of the Messe Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre and our long-standing service partners, we succeeded in realising an in-person congress with more than 4,000 participants and a large-scale industry exhibition – and with no major hitches beforehand. This proves that even under these exceptional conditions, and despite dynamically changing official regulations, it is possible to carry out face-to-face meetings safely. Together with the participating doctors, the industry sector and the destination of Stuttgart, we are delighted at this great success.

Thanks to the MICE Club Live 2021 I was able to return to Stuttgart after an absence of a great many years and to renew my contacts with hotels and locations. To my surprise, I found that in Stuttgart nothing had changed. With that, I don't mean the considerably modernised and tasteful existing hotels, nor the smoothly operating, multifunctional organism of the Mercedes-Benz Arena or the new and even more impressive Mercedes-Benz Museum, but the incredibly personal commitment of the people in Stuttgart. Every encounter was on an equal footing, open, cordial and and helpful. The spirit of the city – innovative, cosmopolitan and at the same time down-to-earth – was tangible in every case. For me, Stuttgart has shot right to the top of the list of the MICE cities! Katharina Bitterle, the much-appreciated representative of the Stuttgart Convention Bureau, who has long been one of my favourite contacts in the MICE Club, is absolutely typical of the people who make Stuttgart what it is.

We chose Stuttgart and the ICS Internationales Congresscenter Stuttgart for the annual meeting of tekom and the tcworld conference. This is the largest international event for technical communication, with more than 4,000 participants. Both we, the organisers, and our participants enjoy being in Stuttgart. The Stuttgart Convention Bureau supports us with a wide range of services such as hotel contingents, a free Stuttgart information desk and the planning of framework programmes. We can always rely on its help with any issues we may have.

Organizing IEEE Virtual Reality was an extremely time-consuming task that myself and the other organizers poured our heart into. We were so grateful to have found such an impressive venue (Stadthalle Reutlingen) to host this event. While our efforts and the academic contributions helped to make record breaking attendance of 700 people (previous record was about 500); we know from our discussions with the Stadthalle organizers that growing to this big of attendance and our sucesss as a conference was only possible due to the venue! The fact that we could use an entire floor for Research Demonstrations was amazing. Also, on the day of the event we were so impressed with the flexibility and willingness of the Stadthalle to help us put on this impressive event. I felt the Stadthalle staff were prepared for so many things that we as organizers were not aware of; or did not have the time to think of.

We received effective support in organising a large international scientific congress. Thanks to Ms Grützner we were able to book the congress location and evening event extremely quickly. It's a great feeling to have someone at your side who has lots of helpful ideas and contacts. Great service, and maximum support!

Stuttgart was an ideal location which met all of our goals. The GENIVI members, board and guests are all hard charging technology and auto leaders who want to come in and out of a destination and connect with the right people and information easily. The Stuttgart Convention Bureau and the Maritim & Liederhalle all were very helpful in making this happen for us.
