Event and Conference Premises



Positioned in a central location on the RWTH Aachen campus within the cluster for production technology, the WBA Aachener Werkzeugbau Akademie GmbH has a total area of 800 m² available for exclusive events and conferences. The spaces of the WBA offer an ideal environment for promoting communication, creativity and innovation as well as an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas.

Depending on the occasion and requirements, groups from four to ten people can utilize one of the four meeting rooms in the “Werkzeugbau Lounge”, each uniquely furnished according to different concepts and with varying technology. Furthermore, the conference space as well as the seminar room, which is expected to be finished in summer of this year, offer room for up to 40 people for seminars, training courses, workshops, meetings and presentations.

The completely open and transparent room concept also incorporates a generous and light-flooded open space area – the “Erlebniswelt Werkzeugbau”. Not only does this offer sufficient place to work and be creative but also allows for the presentation of numerous demonstrators, which can illustrate the practical solutions for the tool and die making industry of the future. If desired, you may gladly combine your event with a visit to the “Erlebniswelt Werkzeugbau” and experience tool making 4.0 live at the WBA.

Naturally, event technology and equipment (projectors, televisions, facilitator’s toolboxes, flipcharts, pin boards) can be provided by us. We will also gladly help organize a catering service. Parking spots are sufficiently available within walking distance. Event rooms are handicapped accessible.
