The International Summer University (ISU) provides an interactive educational platform for the exchange of strategic and operational knowledge. More than 300 exhibition professionals from 40 different countries participated in the ISU in the past seven editions.

  • Condensed time frame: 3 days of intensive lectures, discussions and networking
  • Annually alternating focus: each ISU focuses on a recent topic
  • Multifaceted structure: strategic, operational and visionary sessions
  • More interaction: workshops and case studies ensure practical discussions
  • Top-class speakers: academics, practitioners and lateral thinkers

The International Summer University is targeted at the middle and higher management of companies in the trade fair and exhibition industry. Professionals from around the world are welcome in Cologne.



The next ISU will take place from 08th-10th June 2016.
