Information for Speakers

Show us what your innovative research and development activities look like at present. In the name of the Scientific Advisory Board, we cordially invite you to contribute to the success of our event with your specialist presentation.

Represent your company and convince the participants of your expertise in person by making your presentation available on our “communication platforms”.

Profit from the intensive exchange in the network of the ATZ | MTZ community. Besides the evening set aside for meetings with the entire circle of participants, the “getting to know you” snack for the speakers held on the eve of the event offers plentiful opportunities for good talks and new contacts. Your name and your presentation topic were published in the sector via our numerous marketing activities in the run-up to the event.

We’re looking forward to talking to you!
