About us

Heads full of technology

In 2000, managing directors Michael Steuber and Jan Thommen turned their passion for technology and events into their profession. Since then, the owner-managed company has developed into one of the leading providers in the events industry. Our experts work closely together at six locations across Germany. As a team, they develop tailor-made solutions for all areas of event technology. Maximum service, absolute adherence to delivery dates and deadlines, and a high degree of flexibility have enabled UEBERKOPF to build a solid customer base – that makes us proud! Even with a constantly growing team, we continue to rely on the same basic values that have shaped us since our foundation: A partnership with our customers, service providers and employees. Highest expectations of quality and service. The claim to make the impossible possible. And in the end, always be prepared to go the extra mile for mutual success!

Our values


An event can only succeed if you work as a team. If all players pull together and motivate each other to achieve top performances, your event will be unforgettable. That’s why cooperation based on partnership at all levels is so important to us. In this way we help your project to succeed and lay the foundation for a long-term, trusting cooperation.


We are service providers with a passion. An event will only be successful if we give 100%. In a dynamic industry, in which challenges are part of everyday life, we roll up our sleeves and pitch in! Every project is different. So we are always personally available to help with advice and support – without presenting off-the-shelf solutions.


We are aware of our responsibility. Our job is to present your company in the best light. There is no second chance for a successful appearance. This also includes visitor, work, and operational safety. The installation of suspended loads, which requires uncompromising professionalism, is a particularly sensitive area. We take on this responsibility and act accordingly.


We set quality standards in every area of our business. To do this, we never stop learning and constantly optimise our performance. Our employees are continuously trained – internally and externally. UEBERKOPF is regularly certified by the Deutsche Prüfstelle für Veranstaltungstechnik (DPVT). For first-class performance and always above standard.


We see ourselves as a learning company and are always open to new ideas. We encourage initiative and interdisciplinary exchange at all levels. This is how we set impulses and constantly develop our company. We want to be a pioneer in a market that is constantly changing. To achieve this, we merge the latest technologies with a thirst for knowledge, a pioneering spirit, and experience.


We do not measure success by short-term success, but by the social, ecological and economic substance of what we create. To this end, it is important for us to continuously and responsibly address the effects of our actions.

Our promise

UEBERKOPF relies on collaboration based on partnership – across all levels. We know what we can do, but we don't take ourselves too seriously. We promise you that every one of us will be there for you. No matter whether we realise a very small or a very large project together. We listen and roll up our sleeves. For our mutual success!

Quality assurance

Design is a matter of taste. Safety isn't. Top quality is a matter of the heart for us. That's why we employ an entire department for this. It scrutinises existing processes and structures. In this way we never stand still while always remaining above standard. Continuous development is sometimes difficult and even painful. In the end, it pays off. For us and for our customers.

Certified structures and processes

We are certified by the Deutsche Prüfstelle für Veranstaltungstechnik (DPVT) and put through our paces in the process. Our processes and production workflows, compliance with applicable standards, occupational health and safety, and financial structure are based on solid foundations.

Qualified employees

We never stop learning in the events industry. Technical possibilities are changing, as do the applicable regulations and laws. All our employees are constantly improving their qualifications in their specialist areas. We work to industry standards and are DPVT-certified.

Tested equipment

First-class equipment is just good enough for you. UEBERKOPF buys event technology exclusively from experienced and renowned manufacturers. If industry solutions are insufficient, we will develop customised solutions. Our specialists constantly check and maintain our equipment. In this way, they ensure that everything will work perfectly again the next time it is used.

Responsibility for choices

For you as a customer, the high process standards and our certifications mean that you make no compromises when choosing the right partner. We guarantee you the highest level of safety and professionalism.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Since our foundation in 2000, we have strived not only to provide excellent services as a professional partner for event technology, but also to uphold moral and ethical values at the highest level. The basis of our work and actions is cooperation at eye level, characterised by mutual respect, integrity and a passion for innovation.

For us, corporate social responsibility means continuously and responsibly addressing the environmental, social and economic impacts of our actions.

What services did we provide?
Load measurement
Detlef Hammer, Revolutions Advertising GmbH

Thank you once again! For the compelling lighting and media concept, but above all for the great dedication you showed in realising this demanding technical installation within the very tight schedule. Only through the commitment of your team was it possible for us to immediately begin with the equally complicated stand construction on the morning of the first day of construction. Otherwise, it would have been very difficult for us to complete. Big compliments!

What services did we provide?
Dr. Nils Andres, Brand Science Institute

Many thanks for the well-founded technical advice and the great execution. The result actually exceeded our expectations, and we felt well looked after and professionally advised at all times.

What services did we provide?

Dear UEBERKOPF team, once again a huge thank you to everyone involved. I can only say that from initial contact to implementation: helpful, reliable, competent, and creative!

What services did we provide?
Gerrit Rickwardt, FEINBRAND Marketing GmbH

As the general service contractor for realising a trade fair appearance, you have to master a lot of challenges. Which is why it's good to have a technical partner at your side who not only knows all about event technology, but is also familiar with local conditions and guidelines. Many thanks for the support! Together, we delivered a great performance, and our customer was delighted.
