»The phygital world«

We had two very inspiring days and lots of good energy at our 11th LIGAconvent at our headquarters – see for yourself!

This was outstanding: At our two-day confestival we’ve connected our community on one single platform – we heard inspiring stories, discovered new unique perspectives, danced to our favorite beats, and simply had the best time on our campus!

Today we’re more connected than ever – within our community, to things, and to the whole world around us. But what does it really mean when “physical” & “digital” become one?

At our 11th LIGAconvent, we explored this exciting new era and dived into the phygital world. Our program included mind-blowing keynotes, interactive work and knowshops, live music sessions and creative happenings.


Get inspired: See for yourself our “best of” selection of impressions & speakers!
