the interdisciplinary forum for work on rope

Next date: 15. and 16. August 2024. See you there!


vertical-connect connects, explains, looks closer, asks questions, identifies answers, invites to think deeper, offers an opportunity to discuss issues and to get to know each other better, an many other things...

vertical-connect has been taking place since 2015 and addresses all people , who have to do with some form of work on rope – or are simply interested.

vertical-connect – get connected!


vertical-connect is organised by a group of people involved in various disciplines, in which work is performed on rope. All of them had an interest in gaining a better understanding of how work is done in other areas, which problems these professions are confronted with and how they are solved.


The other wish was, by creating  a communication platform, to create synergies between the various disciplines – to discover common ground and to share solutions, all in line with the motto of the event:


"vertical-connect – get connected!"

How did vertical-connect come to be?

Edition 2022

This year's edition of vertical-connect was an all-embracing highlight after the two-year break due to the pandemic!
We owe the success to our high-quality sponsors and exhibitors, all the irreplaceable helpers as well as the numerous, wide-awake visitors who found their way to Meiringen, the courageous participants of the brilliant and funny vertical-connect challenge, our unsurpassable Belgian favorite band and of course the great speakers as well as the admirable interpreters who built bridges between francophone, anglophone and German-speaking speakers and visitors with their simultaneous translation: a big thank you to all of you: without you this would not have been possible!
Now we have decided to move to a biennial rhythm in order to keep the quality of the event high.
If you have topics, would like to present something or give a talk, please contact us by January 15, 2024 at the latest. 
By abolishing the daily topics, there is now room for everything that is interesting, raises questions, is fun, stimulates thinking and trying out: from the big wide world of rope work.
