Table Discussions

LEARN, CONNECT AND GROW

Look forward to meeting these Table Captains at #RS2021!

1 Table Captain, 11 participants and exciting discussions around a specific topic: Entrepreneurial masterminds and digital experts exclusively share their insights and personal experiences with you, ask critical questions and provide the right amount of motivation! New know-how, new contacts and a lot of fun - these are our Table Discussions at ruhrSUMMIT!

From sustainability to robotics to blockchain - our panels cover many topics. Learn from the best and take away hands-on strategies for your business!

Our extra: Even if you weren't able to reserve a seat for the panel, you can still join us as a silent member of the audience and follow the live discussion!

Only with registration before the event! We will inform you here and in our newsletter when registration starts.

In addition, some analog Table Discussions will also take place on site at the Jahrhunderthalle in Bochum - but on a smaller scale. For this, 6 additional participants* can register. Important: The registration also takes place via the digital platform!

Yeah, keep me updated!
