Dear friends, business partners & colleagues,

But what's behind the hype and what is spatial computing anyway?
 
We at ON THE ROCK GROUP have the answers for you! We were one of the first in Germany to secure the Apple Vision Pro and would like to share our experiences with you.

The Apple Vision Pro revolutionises the way we experience communication & technology and represents a significant leap in the evolution of digital interaction.

At the informal events with Winni Petersmann, you will have the unique opportunity to test the Apple Vision Pro before its launch in Europe and get to know it in all its facets. You will also find out how you can use spatial computing effectively in your company for future-proof communication measures.
 
Take advantage of this unique opportunity and let us know by 7 March 2024 by sending a direct message to Winni - winni.petersmann@ontherock.de - or write to us via our OTR channels to book one of the limited places with us in Waltrop on 12 March 2024 or Düsseldorf on 14 March 2024 (both from 4-6 p.m.).

ON THE ROCK Startupnight Berlin

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.

Milchbar - OTR-Newcomer Zeche Waltrop

INFORMATIONS  Go on...

The Milchbar - not only our new OTR location at the listed Zeche Waltrop, but also a small, super stylish FATBOY store. Here you will always find selected products from the latest FATBOY collection with the possibility to order and buy more products. Stop by if you're in the neighbourhood. The architecturally magnificent Rondell dates back to the 1950s and was a relaxation room for colliery workers in the old days, where milk was offered. It consists largely of pure glass fronts and is also an excellent place to hold small meetings or conferences, but also to celebrate micro-parties. Fully technically equipped, the atmosphere surrounded by classic old colliery buildings is unique and far more than a mere conference room or store, but the cool somewhat secret hotspot of the colliery.

Check out our other locations with the Dreherei, Werkstatt & much more here on site.

30 years ON THE ROCK

INFORMATIONS  Go on...

30 is a magic number...

1991 Winni Petersmann founds ON THE ROCK. With his playful passion to get people in interaction, he transforms his company from a cultural one-man-show to a global player for physical and digital live-communication with more than 30 employees*.

From the first industry events as a technology service provider for clients like McKinsey in the 2000s, ON THE ROCK becomes an agency for Below The Line marketing measures, such as the Camel Circle and the Camel "World of Pleasure". This was followed by numerous events for Deutsche Telekom ranging from the T-Com Haus Clubtour to Germany-wide change conferences and large international meetings and events.

The ability to sense which song, measure or address is the right one at any given moment is still the formula that distinguishes ON THE ROCK to this day - not least thanks to a network of creative professionals from a wide variety of fields, coupled with 100% execution quality even on unfamiliar terrain. This has proven itself again 20 years later in the pandemic, with ON THE ROCK developing digital and virtual live-communication as a new business field.

At the same time, in the spirit of sustainability, ON THE ROCK has successfully established the Dreherei Zeche Waltrop as a great new venue and studio in the countryside with clients such as E.On, Ista, DKV, rku.It and Select AG.

"I never imagined that the "operation of a mobile discotheque", as it says in the trade license, would become such a company. We are looking forward to the next 30 years!" Winni Petersmann, CEO - ON THE ROCK
