German Opus Suite Conference 2023

A warm welcome to Cologne and our Opus Suite Community from the D-A-CH region.


The German Opus Suite Conference is held every second year. It represents a unique forum for Opus Suite practitioners, managers, and decision-makers from primarily Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

Simply, a great forum to meet, interact and learn from each other.
