Key Notes & Lectures & Innovation Areas

IHK Conference

Fit for the future through digitalisation (Fee required)

Success factors and "best practices": When companies talk about digital strategy, it is so simple in theory, but in reality it is sometimes rather a chaotic construction site. Where do you start, what are suitable initial projects and who can help in the company with implementation? Where can I find qualified employees or how can I sufficiently qualify my own team? Digitisation projects must be individually adapted to the company. At this conference, we from the IHK Lahn-Dill and IHK Hessen innovativ, together with the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen, want to show how companies have been able to successfully implement digitalisation projects and what opportunities are available regionally to receive assistance from experts.

Participants of the event will learn about successfully implemented digitisation projects and will receive helpful hints for the development of their own digital strategy.

  • Organizer: IHK Lahn-Dill and IHK Hessen innovativ together with the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen.
  • Target group: Managing directors, plant managers, digitalisation and IT managers and interested parties.
  • Contact: IHK Hessen innovativ: Dr. Gernot Horst, Phone: +49 (0) 6441 9448-1250, E-Mail:
