windream.CON ECM Convention with New Record Attendance

December 7, 2015 | Bochum. – windream GmbH from Bochum, the producer and vendor of the windream Enterprise Content Management System, announced a new record attendance for the windream.CON ECM convention. Altogether, over 500 people visited the convention at Bochum’s RuhrCongress, which had once again been chosen as the event location, on November 18 and 19, 2015. Compared to the attendance figures of 2012 and 2013, this meant an increase of over 20 per cent. The convention was held in Bochum for the third time.

Exciting keynotes on IT security

On the two convention days, visitors were offered a total of 44 presentations on ECM basics, solutions, technology, and practical uses. The exhibition program “getting in touch with ECM“ with product presentations by the windream partners was also very well received.  

The two introductory keynotes were among the highlights of the convention. Thomas Klausnitzer, administrative official at the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz) and renowned expert on counter-intelligence, talked about the topic “industrial espionage – the silent threat” at the start of the first convention day. The second day began with a thematically related presentation on “medium sized companies as targets of cyber-attacks“ by Thorsten Urbanski, head of national and international business communications at the Bochum company G Data Software AG. Two interesting and exciting presentations, which were not only straight in line with recent developments, but which also complemented each other ideally and were greeted with great applause by the audience.

Convention as alternative concept to traditional trade shows

As an alternative to traditional trade show concepts like the CeBIT in Hanover and the IT & Business in Stuttgart, conventions such as the windream.CON are positively received and very popular. The continuous increase in attendance figures for the windream.CON is proof to this fact.

Consistently positive feedback

For the first time this year, visitors at the convention could report their impressions via a detailed feedback questionnaire. Among other things, many visitors expressed the wish to expand the windream.CON to a regular event platform, providing interested parties, customers, users, partners and vendors with the opportunity to meet and lead constructive discussions.  

The well planned event concept with its mix of demonstrations, presentations and exhibitions in a relaxed atmosphere received exceedingly positive feedback. For all these reasons, a repetition of the windream.CON for 2017 is already planned.
