ISU 2022

topic: "Trade Fair = Fair Trade? Exhibition Formats in the Age of Sustainability"

01.06.2022-03.06.2022 – cancelled for 2022 -

Unfortunately, we now have to inform you that Koelnmesse, together with the Institute of Trade Fair Management at the University of Cologne and the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI), has decided not to hold the ISU this year. Current developments worldwide and the after-effects of the Corona crisis on the event industry are preventing the desired number of participants from attending this year.

The International Summer University (ISU) provides an interactive educational platform for the exchange of strategic and operational knowledge. Almost 500 exhibition professionals from 44 different countries participated in the past eleven editions of the ISU.

  • 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.
