"Enjoy the ruhrSUMMIT Experience"

For 6 years now, ruhrSUMMIT has been the lighthouse event in the region - with an impact far beyond the Ruhr region and Germany. Participants from over 50 countries have already been guests. Our virtual platform will remain part of the event, but in 2022 we will focus on the analog part in the atmospheric Jahrhunderthalle in Bochum

Get digitized: ruhrSUMMIT is in perfect hands under the umbrella of ruhrHUB as the event's new organiser. Start-ups, companies and investors come together here to network and experience up close the latest trends in the digital world.

On June 14th, 2022, ruhrSUMMIT will once again bring together the international start-up scene and enable a global exchange of all relevant players - still in hybrid mode - with a focus on the analog event.

As a consistent further development of the event, the expansion to a digital component was logical and indispensable in 2020. The current situation regarding COVID-19 meant that we only had to hold smaller partial events "without an audience" in the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum, which could actually have been streamed live. In 2022, a perfectly coordinated combination of digital and analog will be implemented.
