Review of LEARNTEC 2017
LEARNTEC is the most important platform for digital learning in Europe
The 25th LEARNTEC, which took place at the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre from 24 to 26 January, was larger than ever. With over 7,500 international professional visitors and congress participants from more than 25 countries, the organizer’s high expectations were fulfilled (2016: 7,250 visitors). “The growing importance of digital education is also evident in the stimulating atmosphere that prevailed at the fair and that was echoed in social media”, said Britta Wirtz, CEO of Karlsruher Messe- und Kongress-GmbH. “Newcomers and longstanding experts alike gained valuable new information at the exhibitors’ stands, in forums and at the congress. One in three visitors spent two or more days at the fair. Sixty-three percent of the visitors were at LEARNTEC for the first time. Nearly half of the attendees came because the fair was recommended to them by colleagues or business associates.
