windreamCON 2021: The location is fixed! We are looking forward to welcoming you at the German Bergbau-Museum Bochum

Our next big conference windreamCON will take place at the Bergbau-Museum Bochum from November 10 to 11, 2021. We are looking forward to this extremely interesting venue, because just like windream, the museum is unique worldwide. Date and location are now fixed!

In accordance with the tradition of the Ruhr area and its culture, we have deliberately chosen the Bergbau-Museum. We also consider it to be particularly suitable because we are celebrating our twentieth anniversary this year. So what could be more natural than to connect our “roots” with mining?

Hybrid Event

We are planning the conference as a hybrid event. This means you have the choice of being on site or participating virtually. Please note that the number of participants depends on the corona protection regulation valid at the time of the event.

Due to the still ongoing pandemic situation, we would like to take this opportunity to inform you that the on-site event at the Mining Museum Bochum will be dependent on the Corona Protection Regulation in effect in November. This means that we currently have to observe the “3G” rule. Thus, only fully vaccinated, recovered or tested persons may attend the conference in person and on-site.

For all participants who attend in person, we have scheduled an exclusive guided tour through the exhibition and the underground demonstration mine.

Exclusive guided tours of the Bergbau-Museum

Incidences permitting, we will be able to offer exclusive guided tours above as well as below ground to all attendees present on site for the conference. What can you expect?

First, experience a trip up the historic winding tower high above the Bergbau-Museum with a breathtaking view of Bochum and the entire mining district. The historic and equally authentic tower is considered one of the tallest winding towers of its time. The view from the visitor platform high above Bochum is unique.

From the heights to the depths

The guided tours through the museum mine underground will be just as unique as they are exciting. Experience at first hand how mining with all its dangers and risks has developed historically. Various machines for mining coal are still so well preserved that they are demonstrated to visitors in an authentic way during ongoing operations.

Look forward to the next windreamCON and to this extraordinary location in the heart of the Ruhr area!
