What does the live and entertainment industry need to do to be equipped for the future? This year's program will address all the relevant factors in four focus topics and give important voices a platform to be heard.


By responsibly using resources and making a positive impact on the environment and climate, companies and organizations contribute significantly to the preservation of nature. It is crucial for the event industry to join this trend and prioritize sustainable measures.

Promotion of young talents

Targeted promotion of young talents will secure the future of the event industry and counteract the shortage of skilled workers. Young talents bring fresh ideas and innovations that can drive the event industry forward. Therefore, LEaT con will offer a training program for apprentices and students.

Artificial Intelligence

Everybody is talking about AI – but what are the opportunities and risks of artificial intelligence for the event and entertainment industry and how can the technology help to improve events and optimize the visitor experience?

Female Empowerment

A strong female presence in the event industry can lead to greater diversity, creativity, and innovation while also helping break down negative stereotypes and foster a more inclusive culture. But how can we provide women with an equal role in an industry that has been traditionally dominated by men?
