Past Roadshow


Impressions from 2013

Roadshow 2013

Last year’s Roadshow was a huge success, with international experts from different industries exchanging their ideas and visions on technical communication.


In June 2013 especially the countries of Northern Europe became host locations to the Roadshows. The project team of the Roadshow and the CEO of tekom/tcworld GmbH, Dr. Michael Fritz, started off their first of a series of six conferences in Helsinki, Finland on 3 June with a second stop in Stockholm, Sweden on 5 June. They continued their tour by going more southbound, to Copenhagen, Denmark and to Antwerp, Belgium. The Roadshow ended in Paris on 14 June.


Main topic: "Technical Contents – A valuable Corporate Asset" 

All conferences were centered on the topic of “Technical Contents-A valuable Corporate Asset” and started with a keynote speech on “Technical communication as a business in Europe” delivered by Dr. Michael Fritz and which was followed by the presentation “Changing the engine without stopping the car” by Jang Graat on behalf of the platinum sponsor Adobe.


Inspiring exchange and network

The respective events were all well-attended by around 40-50 participants each, who wanted to expand their network and learn more about technical communication as a business.

In general, attendees of the Roadshows included managers of technical documentation departments or teams, technical writers and other experts on technical communication. After the morning session and a lunch break the participants had been given the opportunity to network and to share their ideas by working in small groups in which they could discuss the topics and share their conclusions afterwards with the entire audience. 



For tekom it was very inspiring to meet professionals who shared their knowledge on the market of technical communication in their home country. At the same time the local audience was very interested in the differences that still exist among the European countries and stated its wish to attend more of these programs in the future.
