published on 04.05.2018
As Professional Congress Organizer (PCO), event lab. GmbH has been supporting national and international congresses and events in the fields of science, culture and economics for more than 15 years now. At IMEX 2018 in May, Leipzig has its very first appearance as conference location and will be represented by event lab. The full-service congress agency will provide an insight into the extensive services offered by organizers in Leipzig, Central Germany, throughout Germany and Europe.
With more than 60 events, the team of around 25 employees serves thousands of participants every year, hundreds of exhibitors, sponsors and speakers from all over the world. “With Leipzig as our basis, we support our customers wherever they need us,” say event lab. managing directors Katja Störmer and Nancy Klein. For an increasing number of assignments and partners, the agency has steadily increased its staff in recent years. The upcoming move to a more spacious office this summer will result in new capacities for future orders.
With bundled know-how, event lab. contributes to the success of events. The project management includes location selection, financial, operational and personnel planning, legal, tax and compliance issues, sponsorship, invited speaker and participant support, and the social program. “Upon request, we take on the entire project planning, supervise the complete organizational handling and perform as interface between all participating partners and service providers.” This includes, for example, the sponsoring, the organization of accompanying exhibitions and the participant management. “The heart of every congress is the scientific program and the speakers. Therefore, we pay particular attention to their support, from the arrival to the coordination of the technical requirements on-site and the management of their submitted abstracts.” At the same time, organizers benefit from event lab.’s cooperation with strong partners and the valuable synergies of this collaboration.
The visual appearance of an event can also be entrusted to event lab. GmbH. The development of an event design, the implementation of all publications and the setup of the location are also part of their portfolio. “We relieve the meeting committee in all relevant areas, so that the colleagues can concentrate fully on content related aspects.”
In addition to scientific congresses, event lab. GmbH also organizes corporate events of German automotive groups and other companies mostly from the trade fair city Leipzig. These include well-known partners such as Porsche Leipzig GmbH and Zoo Leipzig GmbH. Together with these and about 50 other partners, event lab. is also involved in the congress initiative “Feel the spirit … do-it-at-leipzig.de”, which cooperate closely in the planning, organization and implementation of event formats of all types and sizes in Leipzig.
