BOCOM - Experience Borderless Communication. What will cross-border, effective and sustainable cooperation and communication look like in the future? At the first multisite conference BOCOM in September 2020, participants will experience and test new technologies and ideas and thus discover new opportunities and potentials. BOCOM overcomes spatial, linguistic and cultural boundaries: The event will take place simultaneously at the central conference hub in Berlin and at decentralized locations in different countries. Virtual participation via live stream is also possible.

In terms of content, BOCOM focuses on Future Meeting Space, Mobility 4.0, Collaboration & New Work, Communication & Interaction and Shared Economy & Sustainability. The individually configurable conference programme includes exciting key notes, a variety of technology labs for trying out new tools as well as classic face-to-face networking opportunities.

More than 200 experts* from the fields of event, marketing, communication, HR, IT, business development and sales will work together at BOCOM beyond spatial, linguistic or cultural boundaries to inspire and be inspired. Be part of BOCOM, too - more information and contact details at

The idea for BOCOM goes back to the innovation network "Future Meeting Space", which was founded in 2015 by the GCB and the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO. The aim of the research initiative was to define the technical, organisational and spatial prerequisites for successful events of the future. The multisite conference was identified as one of these Future Meeting scenarios. This idea led to a partnership between the GCB, the Fraunhofer Institute IAO, TRIAD and visitBerlin to create the very first test laboratory for borderless communication in the digital age - BOCOM.
