Do you want to be a sponsor? Please contact us. You can include your flyer in our welcome bag, put a poster on a wall or have a table to present your products.

The money sponsored by companies is appreciated and used to pay for common costs and allows us to offer more or better hosting to the group. For example to pay the dinner on the evening before the conference.

One way to sponsor is to pay for an additional ticket. We can than assign it to a student or a member of the community who can't pay a ticket himself/herself, so more people have a chance to come to the conference.


The 4 star Maritim Hotel München is a modern business and conference hotel that welcomes you with unique ambiance and modern facilities.
