    Premiere - Walk the talk: Magnetic encounters.

    10 June, 10.30 CET

    We are thrilled to look back on a successful premiere of FIDLOCK TALKS in English - many thanks to all participants and for all the great feedback!


    We created the format FIDLOCK TALKS to provide an interactive platform for mutual inspiration and the exchange of valuable know-how. Therefore, we enjoyed receiving all the exciting questions and ideas from everyone.

    We dedicated two different panels to exciting topics from the world of product development: Our founder Joachim Fielder has gone into the biggest failures in FIDLOCK history - but he has also explained the value of these experiences and the lessons learned.


    Based on the example of the WINCH, Breido Botkus and Oliver Schaub from our product development department gave exciting insights into the world of research and design. They addressed the courage needed to come up with creative ideas and which approaches lead to innovations.

    We have compiled the most interesting insights from the panels and discussions of the first English event ,"Walk the talk: Magnetic encounters", for you here!

    Opening and closing a fastener – a short and ordinary moment that most of us encounter many times every day. Why not take this moment and create something special from it? That is what drives us at FIDLOCK – opening and closing as a unique moment, supporting adults and children in daily routines with an exciting connection of function & fun.
