Festo Experience Center

Creating Results for Automation Excellence

Excellent solutions in automation depend on many factors. The choice of the right technology is just as crucial as knowledge of markets, trends and relevant industry topics. With around 20,000 employees worldwide, we are our own competence network. Every day, we develop solutions and produce results for our customers' maximum productivity in factory and process automation. From now on, we will be offering you this in-depth expertise in an even more personal and accessible way - in our Festo Experience Centers (FECs). The first Experience Center started in Neuss near Düsseldorf in November 2021. The second opened its doors in Munich in October 2022 and the third in Chemnitz in May 2023. This was followed in October 2023 by the opening in Lupfig in Switzerland. In January 2024, the Experience Center opened at our headquarters in Esslingen. The location in Hanover will follow at the end of 2024.

We don't just name examples. We show them to you and bring them to life. With high-tech equipment, decisive background information and always in direct relation to your requirements. At the FEC, we demonstrate product innovations, get to the bottom of success stories and visualize interdependencies in such a way that you can identify your own potential for increasing productivity more quickly.


The FEC offers analog space for mutual exchange. But also virtual application environments for testing your strategies and software applications. We intelligently combine components, set up realistic scenarios, go into detail together, advise and derive concrete steps. In an inspiring environment. For the profitable adaptation of new ideas. In real time.


At the FEC, you will meet experts with whom you can put your ideas into practice. Our workshops not only provide insights and immediately applicable skills on modern drive and control solutions. We accelerate results through a collaborative approach and tailor workshop content to your individual interests and operational challenges.
