BOE connect is going live

Monday, 07.02.2022

The first-ever ‘BOE connect LIVE’ event takes place on 4 and 5 May 2022 at Messe Dortmund.


From 4 May 2022, 10:00 – 18:00 hrs to 5 May 2022, 10:00 – 17:00 hrs, BOE Connect Live will host around 100 exhibitors presenting products and services.

“Especially in times of change, getting a comprehensive overview of products on offer and sharing information within the industry have become even more important. It feels great finally to get back on the road with a live attendance format for the event industry in the form of BOE connect LIVE with great exhibitors and plenty of space for face-to-face discussions and valuable specialist talks,” said Sabine Loos, Managing Director of Westfalenhallen Unternehmensgruppe.

The supporting programme includes the ‘Let’s talk’ forum, which will kick off on Stage 1 with Impulse, Panel and Meetup formats. Visitors can help shape the programme line-up by emailing the BOE team ( with details of topics, questions and event-related ideas. The attendance at keynote talks followed by Q&A sessions and at chaired panel discussions will be by advance application only. At the Meetup, free 30-minute slots will be available to feature the latest trending topics, offering an opportunity to engage and share with like-minded people. Applications to take part in these sessions can be submitted in Dortmund during the event. At ‘Speaker’s Corner’ on the second stage, exhibitors will be able to present their service portfolio and innovative developments or simply present to the audience in a pitch or speed dating format.
