Hanse Congress

Fresh wind from Rostock - the new experience of congress!

Hanse moves!

That is the motto of the economic congress during the 38th International Hanseatic Day in Rostock.
From 22nd to 23rd June 2018 entrepreneurs and scientists from Rostock, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and European Hanseatic cities are invited to participate in a new kind of congress.

In the spirit of “Congress meets Event”, the participants will meet in an extraordinary atmosphere, with a considerable supporting program and a concept geared to the needs of the industry.
With the Hanse Congress we would like to offer you a platform for future projects, cooperation and above all for a stimulating exchange.

European companies are kindly invited by Rostocks economy and university to benefit from a network of business and science representatives during the Hanse Congress in Rostock. Get in touch with potential business and cooperation partners. Grow your network and intensify your existing business relationships.

Take Action! Contribute! Celebrate with the hanseatic city of Rostock and be part of the event as a sponsor, speaker during the Hanse Congress or as a participant – we look forward to see you!

On the second day the economy and science of Rostock open their doors and will offer exciting insight scenes. Expect more than just one surprise. In the evening, you can look forward to a networking joint cruise on a traditional sailing ship into the 800th birthday of the hanseatic city Rostock.

7 x 7 Hanse Matrix

According to the traditional “Rostocker 7”, you can look forward to an inspiring 7×7 pitching concept, where „science, economy and growth “, are the central topics. This concept provides 7 times 7 parallel lectures and you choose when you want to participate which impulse-lectures.

Be curious about the most important 7 branches of Rostock. Each of the seven industries faces one of the 7 cross-industry cross-cutting issues.

The speakers will present their topics in exactly 800 seconds according to the example of the pitching-experts 12min.me and will motivate the audience with motivation and conviction. After each pitch there will be another 800 seconds for a constructive dialogue. The 49 impulse lectures are aligned to provide new thinking impulses for the industries and to create synergy effects.
