Social Events

Our Mission

We believe that networking and creating research and business relationships is important to create a sustainable community for improvement and innovation. While the conference offers ideas, presentations, discussions, knowledge during the day, the social talks after the conference are equally important to establish trust and partnerships. We also believe that Europe integrates many regions with different cultures and to build European trust based partnerships we need to learn about the culture of regions. So please join the networking space and social events.

2020 Social Events

Europe has many different regional cultures and customs, and still we need to work together in the EU frameworks. Already at the start of EuroAsiaSPI² in 1994 it was decided to place the conference  in a different region every year and that the local host organises social events that help us to learn about the hosting culture, the traditions, history and the local food. This has a large influence on what social events EuroAsiaSPI² offers.

This year we will explore Düsseldorf, the Rhine metropolis!

The inn "Zum Schlüssel"/ "To the key" is a house brewery founded in 1850, which still brews original beer after their own recipe by procuring some of its raw materials directly from the region. A special feature of "Zum Schlüssel"/ "To the key" is the beer garden, which is located in the churchyard of the Neanderkirche opposite. The name "Zum Schlüssel"/ "To the key" derives from the fact that in former days the keys to the city gates were deposited overnight in nearby inns.
