Be a Sponsor

 Unlike many other conferences, EclipseCon Europe and OSGi Community Event talks are chosen by a volunteer, independent program committee. This allows us to offer a current and consistently high-quality program.

The social times and hands-on activities keep the networking going and make sure that fun is an important part of the gathering.

Please join us as a sponsor or exhibitor and play a significant role in this year’s event – we need your participation to make 2019 a success!

Location and Venue

The Stuttgart area is a hot spot for German industry (including Bosch, Daimler, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche). The region currently has Germany's highest density of scientific, academic, and research organizations, so the conference's Ludwigsburg location attracts a variety of technical professionals.

Ludwigsburg itself is charming and baroque; its most famous attraction is the beautiful Residential Palace, former home of the kings of Baden-Württemberg. The conference venue is the Forum am Schlosspark, a light-filled space in the heart of Ludwigsburg, close to restaurants, shops, and hotels. The Nestor Hotel Ludwigsburg, a few steps away from the Forum, serves as the conference hotel.
