EXPO 9: the Insider Edition

Join for a day of new technologies, breakout sessions with experts, curated networking, and the opportunity to meet and discuss future collaborations with our program startups and corporate partners. This event is not open to the public.


What is EXPO 9: the Insider Edition?

On February 25 we are opening our virtual doors up to a selected group of attendees. It has been designed to connect invited guests with the right people to take their ideas, technologies, investments - to the next level. This will be a one day virtual event, kicking off with a live stream bringing all participants up to speed on how to get the most out of their day.

The Breakout Sessions will be the main event this time around, enabling participants to showcase their ideas and exchange in small expert-led groups. These seminars will go deep into a range of current tech and innovation topics, including interactive workshops on the pilot projects of this program, as well as other STARTUP AUTOBAHN specific themes.

All attendees will receive access to Project Teasers, a series of case studies presenting the projects showcased and are invited to participate in virtual open networking sessions. We are going minimalistic, results-oriented, and functional - in a really good way.

Just head over to https://expo9.pnptc.events/live and you automatically join our livestream.

A recoding of the livestream will stay up the entire day so you absolutely welcome to re-watch your favourite moments throughout the day.

Who can attend EXPO? Is this open to the public?

This EXPO is just for the core STARTUP AUTOBAHN team. It is the Insider Edition which means we have invited: our partners, program startups, and a selection of external guests. But don’t worry, there will be another EXPO in the summertime so stay tuned.

Where will the livestream take place?

The livestream will happen right here on this website. This website is also the hub of all EXPO information. Everything from registration, startup and partner information, agenda, dial-in codes and links to the breakout sessions will be listed here.

Will this be an on-site event or virtual?

In consideration of the current COVID-19 situation, and due to the fact that we work together with startups and partners from all around the world, EXPO 9 will be a fully virtual event. 

We however cannot stress enough how much we are looking forward to a (hopefully soon) future where we can see each other in person again.

Last event you had feature […xyz…] on your website. Will I be able to work with that this time again?

You most probably will, yes. We decided to put up the website as early as possible, so all of our partners and startups can take all the time they need to invite their colleagues.

The website will continue to grow and evolve to deliver all sorts of features you need to work as efficiently as possible.

That being said, we are always happy to receive feedback. Send it on over to: bastian@pnptc.com.
