SCHEMA Group received a wonderful present for their 20th anniversary: the annual SCHEMA Conference at the Messezentrum Nuernberg counted a record 400 participants this year. SCHEMA's close customer relationships had much to do with this success, as did their balanced concept for their event, and the continuous development of their component content management system SCHEMA ST4. Apart from new features of SCHEMA's content management system, the Nuernberg software company has also released a new product. SCHEMA Content Delivery Server continues where ST4 ends, and ensures fast and reliable information distribution.
SCHEMA Group's customer portfolio shows a broad profile across all branches of industry, so participants were treated to lectures by Toyota Material Handling Europe, Philips Medical Systems DMC GmbH and Roche Diagnostics GmbH. However, the presentations by midsized companies such as Brückner Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG or Herrmann Ultraschalltechnik GmbH&; Co. KG were not overshadowed by these global players.
Twelve workshops on various topics and on different levels of difficulty were free to all participants. 14 partner booths on the lecture level invited conference guests to network and discuss solution ideas and new possibilities. For the international guests, there was an English track and one with simultaneous translation. "We're increasingly international, so we're very keen to ensure our guests from abroad can follow the presentations at the SCHEMA Conference," says Marcus Kesseler, CEO of SCHEMA Group. "The translated lectures and the English track were very well received."
Interested parties that don't yet use a content management system were able to get an overview of the market in the CMS Camp. "The first step and initial trigger to buying a component content management system are not trivial. We wanted to offer participants a neutral market overview and a checklist," says Stefan Freisler, co-CEO of SCHEMA Group. "How do you select a component content management system? Which aspects are important? If you have a clear structure, the first hurdle is overcome."
The traditional evening event of the Conference left nothing to be desired. The anniversary celebration took place in the NCC Mitte. It was a colorful mixture of good food, great atmosphere, and two CEOs that thrilled their audience with an engaging celebratory speech. The concluding tombola brought the evening to a well-rounded close.
The date for the SCHEMA Conference 2016 has already been determined. On June 14 and 15, 2016, SCHEMA Group will again welcome their guests from the TechDoc industry to the Messe Nuernberg.
