We connect people

The OTR Group connects people - in Waltrop, Düsseldorf, NRW, Germany and worldwide. ON THE ROCK develops individual new formats and combines digital worlds with analog live-communication. Conception, staging, implementation - our ideas are innovative, sustainable, but never just ordinary. 

ON THE ROCK Silent Disco ON THE ROCK Magic Sky

We have years of experience and expertise in event marketing, worldwide incentives, branding projects, HR recruiting & talent management, tech & trend scouting, as well as virtual, digital, hybrid or corporate events. As far as communication is concerned, we play it all with the combination of OTR Live, OTR Production, OTR Lab and OTR Consulting.

Just get in touch with us and we will develop an individual concept for you and your company together in an uncomplicated way.

We connect people

..and make it easy

We use our professional tools and our know-how to achieve your goals.

We are highly creative and have a special sense for people - at least that's what our customers say. Dealing with people as our core competence is the basis for target-oriented and successful interaction. The right sound and the right atmosphere are of course of enormous importance - ON THE ROCK creates the best conditions with the proper communication.

In addition to successful distribution and professional networking, we combine events with playful passion and thus lure people out of their reserves. Where else can you find a gaming lounge or an interactive playground that are often the true highlights beyond the main event? 

Worldwide? No problem. For Deutsche Telekom, among others, we have been organising great incentive trips to beautiful locations locally and sustainably for several years.

GO Digital - ON THE ROCK plans your digital event from finding ideas and conception to event reporting. We design your virtual or hybrid event with creative solutions. Branding, placement of sponsors, connection to digital media campaigns as well as connection to the real world are components of the implementation. There are no limits to our streaming. Stay digitally connected through us and create new digital spaces of interaction with us. If required, we can set up an atmospheric streaming studio on site at the Zeche Waltrop and combine it with a live event. Living room, talk, stage, virtual meeting, conferences, DJ or concert, everything is possible there.

Sustainability - Our credo and our attitude since the beginning. Not only will a live experience be remembered with lasting experiences, it is also our very own concern to use our resources as sustainably as possible on the production level. 

We also create something that has never been done before. Recruiting? Let's do it on a bicycle; or let's stage individual applicant days where applicants go out with a smile on their faces. Team building? We invite you to retro gaming in our games lounge or organize a DIY party.

Live communication with Future Gadgets and VR Experience - live - virtual - hybrid? No problem. Hygiene concepts? E-Mobility? We already have - and even more. Gladly also for you!

Here are a few first impressions:

Incentive Trips


We have been implementing great incentive trips for Deutsche Telekom and others for several years. These include the Top Performance Club (TPC), the Top Sales Club (TSC) and, since this year, all three trips of the Winners' Circle (WiCi) Bronze, Silver and Gold. Great destinations included Marrakech, Dubai, Barcelona, Algarve, Mykonos, Denver, Vienna, but also Amsterdam, Munich, Finland or Lisbon.

OTR services cover the complete organisation, planning and coordination of the trips, made possible by the connection to our worldwide DMC network. In this way, ON THE ROCK finds authentic locations, has comprehensive hotel/flight management and thus provides an complete worry-free service.

EON Impact Festival


The internal E.ON Impact Festival 2022 was conceived and organised by ON THE ROCK in cooperation with E.ON Innovation Group GmbH. From concept development to organisational and technical planning to implementation in the atrium of the E.ON headquarters, we were able to make full use of our comprehensive full-service capabilities as OTR Group.

Telekom Partner Experience 2024


As one of our favourite events, we designed & implemented the Telekom Partner Experience 2024 in the beautiful The FRAME and Lofthaus in Düsseldorf - supported by a wonderful atmosphere of the many great participants with exciting lectures, workshops & culinary specialities as well as festive honours under the motto "You are the key". 

Of course, there were great artistic specials with Sophie Moser, DJ Electra & Funktrio.

Telekom Campus Fair 2024


We have been part of Telekom Campus Fair 2024 at the Telekom Campus in Bonn. Additionally, the Green Future Best Practice Awards ceremony took place during the event. The Awards were showcasing impactful initiatives aligned with Deutsche Telekom´s sustainability objectives. It was a pleasure to prepare and support these two inspiring days. Once again, OTR was responsible for the trade fair and stage design and managed the entire guest experience for the vendors. The event was capped off with an executive dinner at the Michelin starred Restaurant Yunico @ Kameha Grand.

HR DIY - Events


Empty airport hangar? Full house! We prepared Berlin's Teufelsberg for 70 top managers and brought 1,200 international guests to Berlin Tempelhof to interact. Have you ever taken care of the catering first, then played Pac-Man, later tested your DJ skills and danced? Do you want something special, also something special in human terms for your company? The combination of our own ON THE ROCK modules such as "Do-It-Yourself Party", retro and exergaming as well as the selection of flexible furniture with our flair for people are sustainable, always typical ON THE ROCK, possibly also for you?

This globally unique event has been taking place annually for several years at wonderful locations. This year we went to the Aldiana Club Calabria. We welcome athletes who have won a medal in the highest ranking competition of the year.

The cooperation between Deutsche Sporthilfe and the Aldiana Club includes not only fundraising campaigns and special tourist offers for sponsored athletes, but also the annual meeting of Germany's best athletes, the Sporthilfe Club der Besten.

Every year ON THE ROCK organizes the spectacular event week, which includes many of our gadgets, interaction, specials, atmosphere, galas and more.

Samsung Galaxy X Club - DIGITAL X 2023


Samsung Galaxy X Club at the DIGITAL X 2023.

50,000 visitors, 250 top speakers, 5 stages and inspiring live acts at DIGITAL X in the heart of Cologne - and right in the middle of it all was the Brandhouse at Media Park, designed by ON THE ROCK for Samsung Electronics. The Galaxy X Club became the central meeting point for all visitors and showed in an entertaining way how digital innovations will shape the business of tomorrow.

In addition to interactive product presentations for business customers, such as the presentation of the Samsung Knox security solution, the Galaxy X Club offered the best entertainment in a club atmosphere with singer Benjrose and DJ N-Sure. From the 360-degree video booth with the Galaxy S23 Ultra to the memory wall with 16 Galaxy ZFlip5 devices and digital pinball machines with a retro look, there were plenty of opportunities to try out the latest technologies.

As a company, we are happy to be part of the Smart Region Emscher-Lippe, as the combination of physical and digital or hybrid events has been a big part of ON THE ROCK's work not only since the pandemic. 

We are Smart because we can perfectly combine live events with innovative technologies such as mixed reality, metaverse platforms and gamification. With gamification, we manage to extend the interaction and communication beyond an event and to create networking in advance. Likewise, in physical live events, we can motivate people to move, network or even learn.

ON THE ROCK is a single source for the entire event, from conception to format development, organisation, complete media technology and furnishings. We are at home at Zeche Waltrop and have a location for events - physical and digital or hybrid - in the form of the Schlosserei and Dreherei.
