D – The HAPTICA® live is relocating: From 2016 onwards “The Experience of Haptic Advertising” will be staged at the World Conference Center Bonn (WCCB) and will take place on March 16, 2016. The spacious, light-flooded new building that is located right next to the United Nations campus offers sufficient room for future growth.
At the Palladium in Cologne, the venue location of the HAPTICA® live 2014 and 2015, the event has reached its capacity in the light of the growing number of exhibitors and visitors. With their decision to relocate to the WCCB, WA Media, the organisers of the HAPTICA® live, have found a location that corresponds to the rising demands: The location and the infrastructure, the spatial prerequisites and the atmosphere were the deciding factors for the move to the WCCB. To be more precise: Together with the Plenarsaal and the Wasserwerk, the extension of the building that is to be completed by mid-2015 constitutes an exceptional congress centre with the infrastructure of a capital city. Furthermore, in terms of economic power, the City of Bonn is an attractive event location: Major companies such as Deutsche Telekom and Postbank are based here, together with almost 16,000 medium-sized firms and numerous international and internationally operating institutions and organisations.
