INCH, formerly known as QVIG
From question to statement –
from “quo vadis infographic?” to “infographic changes!”
The world gets more complicated all the time – we make it simple. With clarifying graphics, flowcharts and pictograms, the eye opens up a path for the brain to understand complex facts. Born last year as the little sister conference to the Editorial Design Conference, it immediately became Europe’s biggest infographics conference. INCH is the logical sequel – on two mornings, you can now experience the entire world of “sign” languages.

The Alte Kongresshalle (Old Congress Hall) has been a centreer for public and private events since it was built in 1952/53. Set in grounds near the Theresienwiese at the heart of Munich, the imposing building underwent extensive restoration and technical modernization by the Edith-Haberland-Wagner- Stiftung in 2007 and is now an ideal setting where various kinds of individual events can be staged.
The main hall of the Alte Kongresshalle offers a space for concerts, conferences and congresses. The mezzanine gallery and hall gallery create the perfect atmosphere for smaller private or business events, while the stunning entrance foyer is a prestigious setting for gala evenings, premieres or receptions.
The outstanding feature of this heritage-protected and highly versatile event venue is its retro-futuristic architecture. Its severely simple and clean lines are continued throughout the interior and define the unique character of this landmark of Munich culture.
