At ECSS MetropolisRuhr 2017 we had 53 exhibitors from 14 different countries showcasing their state-of-the-art products and services during the congress. The atmosphere at the exhibition was energetic and busy with interaction. Participants had the opportunity to engage with a wide range of new businesses and organisations, learning about their scientific solutions and increasing their knowledge on the latest developments and trends available in the market.


This year we also brought some new ideas to the exhibition hall. We had motion spots where delegates could challenge themselves between the lectures with different tasks, for example slacklining and putting just to name few.

In addition we hosted our very first ECSS Exhibition Raffle, which turned out to be a great success!

13 exhibitors participated in the raffle and had come up with various, interesting tasks for the delegates, which led to good conversations and performances. We received a lot of positive feedback both from the delegates and the exhibitors.

The raffle draw took place on Friday afternoon where we draw six lucky winners. The prizes varied from an engraved ECSS iPad to high quality product prizes sponsored by our amazing exhibitors.

“When coming to the booth with a Raffle coupon in your hand, you immediately get into a good conversation with the Exhibitors. More interaction that I have usually had. Interesting and nice tasks! A great idea from ECSS.”

We would like to thank all 53 exhibitors for their commitment and participation as well as all the delegates for being active in exhibition and eager to get into interaction with the exhibitors.

See you all next year at ECSS Dublin 2018!
