    Meeting, room and coffee bar

    The 17 rooms of the ZEISS Forum are the embodiment of elegance, modernity and, above all, flexibility. With sizes up to 80 square meters, the rooms offer flexible seating arrangements to accommodate your needs.

    It is partly possible to increase or reduce the size of the rooms through the use of partition panels.

    Level 3 of the ZEISS Forum features a suite that offers ample space for large events: equipped with a stage, this room offers the perfect backdrop for all events focused on one or several people – whether for cultural events like concerts, press conferences or lectures. The artists' dressing rooms are on the same floor and offer the comfort and convenience that both artists and business partners expect. The cafeteria is located on level 3 of the ZEISS Forum and offers you a wide selection of culinary delights that leave nothing to be desired.

    Meetings, auditorium and gallery

    In addition to meeting rooms, the Abbe-Auditorium and the Gallery of the ZEISS room can be found on level 4 of the ZEISS Forum. The slight upward slope of its fixed seating makes the auditorium the ideal setting for lectures and podium discussions with up to 144 participants. The auditorium borders on the gallery of the ZEISS room that accommodates not only the stage, but also another technical highlight: web streaming cameras are an integral part of the equipment provided. This enables you to host events, conferences and meetings at an international level.

High-tech equipment

You can record your event and then make digital copies afterwards. There are two meeting suites equipped with Mediascape technology.

This allows the transfer of presentations from laptops to monitors, enabling easier exchange of information during meetings in which several attendees sharing the same rights can take part. Other technology can be booked via the ZEISS Forum team.
