Cultural Involvement

Our Cultural Involvement reflects our business portfolio, events and communities. Our involvement includes organising events, sponsorships and awards for outstanding achievements in music, architecture and design.



The "Luminale" accompanies our international trade fair Light+Building. The Biennale of lighting culture is an event that illuminates the city and region in the evenings after the Light+Building closes its doors. In the past decade, the “Luminale” has evolved into an event that generates attention all over the world.

The project "Music4Kids" is part of the Musikmesse fair. Children and young people can learn about the world of music and try out real instruments and sound objects. With various theme worlds
“Music4kids“ illustrates the joy of making music while explaining the basics of sound physics and musical parameters.
