Stimulating and inspiring customer exchange at ETAS symposium

The impressive venue of the historic powerhouse of the former black powder manufacture in Rottweil was the location for this year’s Competence Exchange Symposium (CES).

The impressive venue of the historic powerhouse of the former black powder manufacture in Rottweil was the stimulating and inspiring location for this year’s Competence Exchange Symposium (CES). The building’s charm provided a stimulating atmosphere for discussions of high-energy and powerful solutions by ETAS experts, customers, and partners.

With its soaring columns and lofty ceilings, it is reminiscent of a cathedral.

Uwe Hillmann, member of the ETAS Board of Management, made an enthusiastic comment that voiced the opinion of the event’s attendees: “Especially the combination of the historic and time-worn walls of the powerhouse and its now obsolete technology with the contemporary, sleek, and efficient ETAS modules, has definitely had a stimulating and inspiring effect on the exchanges with our customers. We saw the transport of emotions!”

The boiler house comprised the beating heart of this impressive powerhouse.

The annually held Competence Exchange Symposium (CES) was a resounding success—not only with regard to its unique and impressive location, the stately and imposing building of the Rottweil powerhouse, which supplied electricity, hot water, and steam for the manufacture of black powder roughly a hundred years ago.

Two concurrent presentation series provided ample opportunities for the introduction of projects and new products by customers, partner companies, and ETAS experts.

Numerous presentations and lively exchanges of experiences among ETAS experts, invited guests, customers, and exhibitors appeared to charge the air with energy and tension.

The event’s accompanying information market featured live demonstrations of our new products and a variety of partner company solutions.

Others described the event’s atmosphere as a “climate of change” that aligns the obsolescence of the bygone century and its outdated technology with our modern age and the speedy product changes.

Featured introductions highlighted INCA-MCE, ETAS ASCMO, EVE, LABCAR, INTECRIO, RT2, plus the ETAS measurement modules.

“Because it goes without saying”, added Uwe Hillmann, “that our goal at ETAS is always to offer the solutions of tomorrow”.

The Formula Student racers were on display inside the former furnaces.

Visibly impressed by the event’s scope and professionalism, the guests thoroughly enjoyed both the well structured program and the accompanying exhibits and presentations.

The 4th Prototyping User Day was embedded in the Competence Exchange Symposium at the Rottweil powerhouse.
