Symposium venue

Oberhof, known for its stunning natural beauty, is the epitome of tranquility and serenity nestled amidst the Thuringian Forest. As one of Germany's foremost winter sports destinations, it has long been a hub of excitement and activity, making it an ideal location for our gathering.

Oberhof's historical significance in winter sports is evident in its world-class facilities, such as the biathlon stadium, ski-jump hills, and the bobsleigh and luge track. These venues have hosted multiple international championships, reflecting the town's global reputation as a center for winter sports.

In addition to its sporting legacy, Oberhof also offers an opportunity to explore the idyllic German countryside, filled with hiking trails and panoramic views that will leave you inspired and refreshed. The town's warm hospitality and unique charm further contribute to an unforgettable experience.

Join us for the Friction Conference 2024 in Oberhof, where we will not only share knowledge and insights but also experience the thrill of a town steeped in winter sports history. We look forward to welcoming you in Oberhof, a town where professional growth and leisure go hand in hand!
