About Us

Organizing conferences and events since 1986

Our Story

K.I.T. Group was founded by CEO Willy Kausch as a Berlin-based Professional Conference Organizer with only a few employees. Since then, K.I.T. Group has grown impressively in size and is now a leading association, conference and event management company with more than 30 conferences and public events each year.


Synergy & Competence

Our Motto

Synergy & competence is our motto and we pride ourselves on building sustainable relationships and consistently delivering innovative, reliable and high-end solutions.

The term SYNERGY describes the different divisions of K.I.T. Group cooperating strategically for an outcome, the conference. Our teamwork produces a better overall result than if each person were working toward the same goal individually. A successful conference is achieved with a combination of knowledge and experience from both the client and the organiser. Synergy also refers to the benefits that our clients can expect from our expertise and extensive networks in the field of medical conferences.

Our COMPETENCE in the field of medical conferences is our competitive advantage. It is characterised by our professionalism, our know-how, expertise, and our an excellent relationship with our clients.

Passionate about our business

Our Values

As we move further into the 21st, century our belief and passion for face-to-face events remain as strong as ever. We and our customers are adapting to the realities of a rapidly changing and sometimes uncertain world. We are aware of the need to remain agile, informed, and connected. Emerging technologies, massive demographic shifts, regulation, governance, and a new age of relative austerity mean that we must constantly evolve our strategy to better serve the sector and to guarantee the value of your meetings.

Within the next 30 years, we are committed to building our global presence and relationships, developing our human and technical resources, maintaining client synergies, building more specialized solutions, and most importantly: being reliable and discreet partners in your success.


We are a people business

Our Team

With more than 170 pro-active and multi-disciplinary employees from more than 22 countries, K.I.T. Group has organised over 2,700 conferences across 5 continents for 50 to 28,000 participants in 30 years.

Our staff members come from various backgrounds, including event, or tourism management of course, but also business, political studies, law, languages, or cultural management. This is an asset when we welcome delegates coming from all over the world.


Taking care of our environment and society

Our Engagement

As a global company, we want to be able to give something back. Our Corporate Social Responsibility helps us to administer our business processes in a way that has a positive impact on society and the world.


K.I.T. Group is committed to sustainable events and has worked with several clients to achieve this goal. The company has a long-standing green meeting policy with detailed guidelines that can bring experience over many years into force.

 We support our clients – by providing advice and expertise in addition to developing and implementing sustainability plans. Our Pathway to Sustainability programme offers clients support at three levels – from Green Advocate to Green Champion to Green Leader.



Continual renewal of skills is the best way to ensure efficiency and high productivity. This is why the continuous development and engagement of the team is very important to K.I.T. Group.

To ensure a strategic and structured development, the K.I.T. Group Skill Database is currently in development. A knowledge transfer and an internal communication task force (both formed from a variety of team members to be able to cover all perspectives from the different business areas) are in place and active. The Human Resources development plan covers knowledge of conference management, techniques, and procedures, as well as soft skills for different roles/profiles. As an example, a holistic leadership programme covering all aspects of modern leadership has been launched within the corporate group in 2014 and is still ongoing. These activities motivate individual team members to excel in their jobs and at the same time ensures SOP and a common ground throughout the whole team.

Quality Management

To further improve quality and consistency for safety and monetary savings, we at K.I.T. Group have instituted a Quality Management System consisting of various assurance methods. The implementation of task forces charged with the mission of finding new and innovative ways of operating, procurement for high quality with cost analysis in mind, and evaluation of statistics and reports have all proven beneficial.

Combined strengths for your success

Our Partnerships

The continued improvement of trade show locations, the availability of infrastructure and as little bureaucracy as possible are their cause as much as ours. Our membership and active participation in the leadership of national and international organisations are part of our efforts to further enhance the smooth operation of trade events. Voluntary submission to the evaluation of these organisations also guarantees our commitment to the highest standards of quality for our clients.
