Students’ Convention

Welcome. And stay abreast with the future.

The annual dvi Students’ Convention is a chance for some 90 students of packaging-related subjects in the fields of technology, design and food to get together with business representatives, experts and influencers in politics and society.

In addition to fascinating and inspirational insights into the innovative mindsets and future ideas of tomorrow’s employees, all companies participating benefit from valuable opportunities to establish initial contacts with talented young people and develop them in a sustainable way during panel discussions, workshops and business speed dating sessions.

Through the dvi Students’ Convention we give space to youth development and promote the transfer of know-how and expertise between industry and high potentials at an early stage. It’s a win-win-win situation – for businesses, students and the future!
