The tekom conferences are the German speaking conferences of the Gesellschaft für Technische Kommunikation – tekom Deutschland e.V.
The annual conference is held every autumn in the same place, at present, this is Stuttgart, Germany. It is accompanied by the tekom fair, the only trade fair for technical communication worldwide, as well as the English "tcworld Germany". Currently, tekom is the largest international event for technical communication.
The spring meetings are held annually at different locations in Germany. They are accompanied by a smaller exhibition.
The tekom conferences are organized by a volunteer advisory board, which publishes a call for papers and selects the speakers for the conference. The activities are then carried out by tcworld GmbH.
In addition to ‘tcworld Germany’, tcworld GmbH organizes other international conferences, which are held as stand-alone tcworld conferences or in conjunction with partners. Currently, these consist of tcworld India, tcworld China, Information Energy, COMTecnica, NORDIC TechKomm, and Evolution of Technical Communication (ETC).
