Hanse Congress

Take action!

Hanse moves! This is the motto of the business program during the 38th International Hanseatic Day in Rostock 2018. From June 22nd to 23rd, 2018 entrepreneurs from Rostock, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and European Hanseatic cities are invited to present their innovative business concepts and projects in 800-second-pitches. Be curious about interesting lectures from seven different industries where movement and mobility are the central topics.

Our Hanseatic and University city Rostock looks back on a history of 800 years. The companies of the city and the University of Rostock, founded in 1419, have always shaped the development and social life of our city. Rostock’s businesses and the university invite European companies to introduce themselves during the Hanse Business program in Rostock and to benefit from an international network of business and science representatives.

Get in touch with potential partners or investors. Grow your network and intensify your existing business relationships during the Hanse Business program in Rostock.
