19th Strategic Partner Meeting – Highlights of the two-day conference

The 19th BOC Strategic Partner Meeting took place on the 13th and 14th of September, 2018. More than 400 guests from over 20 different countries gathered to attend this traditional biannual event in the Apothecary Tract and the Orangery of the historic Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna.

The event started off with an introductory speech from the Board of BOC Group, which welcomed all present guests. After this warm introduction, the diverse event program began. On each day of the conference, visitors had the choice of participating in one of the four parallel presentations offering best practice lectures, workshops and tool demos.


The case studies and lectures on product innovations, along with the hands-on workshops, provided impressive insights into the wide range of BOC Group offerings.


In addition to that, the best practice lectures also began to unfold and reveal the real versatility of application across different areas and fields.


The product and service managers of BOC Group dedicated themselves to the topics of business transformation and digitization, as well as the end-to-end support of the BOC Management Office.


During the presentation breaks, there was plenty of opportunity to exchange views with colleagues and experts – whereas networking and socializing were at the main focus!


The first day of the conference was concluded with a champagne reception, later followed by a glamorous gala dinner, which guaranteed satisfaction and delight of all who were present.


The second day of the conference began with an exciting keynote speech by the University of Vienna, followed by further best practice lectures, tool demos and a panel discussion. After the closing speech at the Orangerie, the conference concluded with a lunch.


We would like to thank all visitors for their participation and keen interest and look forward to the 20th strategic partner meeting in 2020!
