Live networking at the 2017 Meeting Place for Business event

Feature topic: Networking at Business School Alb-Schwarzwald

Guests welcomed to the Meeting Place for Business event on April 13, 2019 in Rottweil

Lots of people want to be innovative, but in all honesty: Is anyone actually innovative? Probably not the sort of company that sits quietly in the corner, filing away at its own ideas. And surely not an educational establishment that churns students through seminars and degree programs without giving them the chance to network with each other. So what could be more logical than to bring everyone together and invite them to a small but important trade show – to encourage them to engage in informal conversation and exchange ideas? The business school in Alb-Schwarzwald is going to stage its Meeting Place for Business event for the fifth time this year. It will provide an opportunity to anyone interested in networking to meet new people and see what’s going on behind the factory gates in the region.

This year, Meeting Place for Business starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 13 in Rottweil town hall. The exhibitors will include students, alumni, and partners of the business school, which forms part of Steinbeis University. Anyone with an interest in regional networking is welcome to attend.

Aside from networking at the information booths, for the first time this year’s event will include spotlight topics as a way of inviting visitors to talk in more detail about a specific topic. This will allow visitors to share their knowledge with experts working at or with the business school and the Steinbeis Network, and look at a variety of subjects such as IT security, social media marketing, lean management, or business relations in Arabian countries/Turkey/Asia. The event will also offer an opportunity to discuss management in an era of digital transformation and emerging technology.

What will visitors get out of Meeting Place for Business? Previous experience shows that there are a variety of benefits, from new ideas regarding special technology to first contacts with potential new employers, plus new openings with potential clients and suppliers.


There is not yet a fixed program for the “agile” event. The schedule will be finalized at the last moment. To find out more about the current schedule and registration, go to The event is free.
