In addition, you can actively participate in workshops and personal discussions on the future topics of this production technology and inform yourself "hands-on" in the exhibition.

8. How does the registration for the evening / workshop / panel discussion & evening reception work?
In the participant registration process, participation in a) evening reception, b) workshops, c) panel discussion and d) evening reception may be selected. Special feature of workshops: As several workshops will take place simultaneously, participants will be asked to indicate their preferred option when registering. The number of participants in the workshops is limited and therefore follows the principle "first come, first serve". It is therefore possible that participants will not be able to participate in the workshop of their choice if they register late. In principle, however, it is ensured that every participant can participate in one of the workshops or the parallel panel discussion.
