STUVA Conference 2021 Planned as a Face-to-Face Event

The decision has been made: Thanks to the far advanced vaccination campaign against the coronavirus, the „family reunion of the tunnel industry“, the STUVA conference with accompanying trade exhibition STUVA-Expo, is to take place as a face-to-face event in the familiar manner from 24 to 26 November 2021 at Messe Karlsruhe.

„Of course, we will carefully monitor the further development of the pandemic and observe the official requirements when holding the event. We may still have to put up with some restrictions, but the opportunity for the long-awaited personal exchange will certainly outweigh these,“ says Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Ziegler, Chairman of the STUVA Board.

The STUVA Conference is just the place for networking; it is one of the most important forums for the entire underground sector. With more than 3800 professionals from over 20 countries last time, it is one of the world‘s leading and largest events in the tunnel sector.

The traditional festive evening on the first day of the STUVA Conference has become an absolute highlight of the event in recent years, where business partners meet in a relaxed atmosphere.

The lecture events are bilingual throughout (simultaneous translation German/English) and will take place on 24 and 25 November. Parallel to the lecture series on „Tunnel Construction“, lectures on „Tunnel Operation/Planning“ will be presented in a separate auditorium.

„The STUVA Conference comes at exactly the right moment. Transformative changes lie ahead for our industry in the coming years. The goal of complete climate neutrality by 2045 alone will lead to a fundamental change in drive technologies and to far-reaching changes in the infrastructure. If not us engineers, who is to ensure that these goals can also be implemented technically?“ states STUVA Managing Director Prof. Dr.-Ing. Roland Leucker.

Ziegler adds: „You can look forward to over 60 cutting-edge and exciting technical presentations and the numerous innovative products at the accompanying STUVA Expo.“
