“Onsite meets Online” – digital event platform

The HYDROGEN DIALOGUE is designed as a hybrid, so that many elements of the face-to-face event are also offered in parallel for participants who attend the event once again purely digitally. On our proven digital event platform talque, for example, the presentations on the two main stages will be streamed live and you will find the digital company profiles of all exhibitors there.

Via chat function and in digital round tables, the currently relevant topics can also be discussed online and questions to the speakers on the two main stages on site can be asked via slido. On site, there is our Digital Lounge, where participants can retreat and take the opportunity to network on the event platform.
