Case Study: innolution valley

On 3rd and 4th November 2017 the startup conference and expo for founders and corporates, "innolution valley" – a neologism made up of "innovation" and "revolution" – took place for the first time at the Forum am Schlosspark. Its declared goal: "Let's not only meet – let’s build the future".
In the heart of the important economic and scientific region of Stuttgart, "innolution valley" not only offered prominent speakers and stimulating workshops, but also provided a platform for networking and collective brainstorming. Participants could exchange ideas and establish a basis for successful cooperation. The "creative minds of the future" were welcomed by Mayor Michael Ilg to the "valuable, important and future-oriented event".


The topics of digitisation, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, industry 4.0 and design thinking were extensively discussed, whereby every discussion centred on the exchange of ideas and on connecting and networking in a reciprocal dialogue. Thanks to the very favourable room division at the Forum on an area of 3,000 m2, an eminently suitable room for networking was created. Lectures, pitches and brainstorming sessions could be held concurrently. More than 120 exhibitors came to the startup expo in order to present their products and services to the relevant representatives from established enterprises, as well as to bloggers and influencers. In addition, they were able to introduce their products to the press and to the "who's who" among the investors. More space for the joint development of solution approaches and discussions was provided by the food trucks that provided the catering for the event. At the numerous parties in Ludwigsburg it was possible to carry on discussing challenges and finding solutions after the official programme had ended. This event has shown that Ludwigsburg's Forum am Schlosspark is ideally suited as an event venue. It provides options for meeting space and room for the planned expansion. For this reason the next events are already scheduled for 2018. Another event will be held at the Forum in the summer, while a larger event for an international public is planned for the autumn.


With its full-sized stage, state-of-the-art technology and room for up to 3,000 guests, the Forum with a total of 5,000 m² at its disposal can provide suitable facilities for conferences, congresses and cultural events of every kind and size.
Accommodation options to suit every pocket and in the direct vicinity of the location are available, among others, at the nestor Hotel, Campus 2, Hotel Blauzeit and nh Hotel.
Only a stone's throw away – in the midst of the beautiful park with the "Blühendes Barock" gardens – is the magnificent Royal Palace of Ludwigsburg, Europe's largest Baroque palace complex. With its Ceramics Museum, Palace Theatre, Fashion Museum, Baroque Gallery and interesting guided tours, it offers a wide range of attractive options for fringe events.
