Outside cool, inside fiery

How fascinating can modern technology in lifts be? Absolutely gripping, as could be experienced at the Schwelm Symposium in June in Sprockhövel.


This year the Schwelm Symposium boasted 140 participants and 24 speakers at the Vesper golf hotel in Sprockhövel. Then there was the exhibition, at which 22 companies showcased their products.

HandwerkThe discussions were correspondingly lively – inspired by the talks revolving around current lift industry topics. These involved wear monitoring and modernisation concepts, operator responsibility and the new Lift Ordinance, lift monitoring and financing.

Company exhibits

Due to the cold weather, the numerous coffee breaks of the conference took place in the exhibition room. Clustered around the company exhibits, the discussions were devoted to lift doors, software, lift components and emergency call systems.

HandwerkThe evening programme was enlivened by the magician Marc Weide, who amazed the spectators with astonishing tricks.

As the new media partner of the Schwelm Symposium the LIFTjournal has already taken up several topics of the symposium and more will follow in loose order.

The next Schwelm Symposium will take once again place on 26 and 27 June 2017 in the Vesper golf hotel.
