Well placed: The Metropolitan Region of Frankfurt Rhine-Main will be jointly represented at the ICCA World Congress in Leipzig
Many players in the industry know the Metropolitan Region of Frankfurt Rhine-Main as the host of the annual IMEX exhibition. Moreover, Frankfurt International Airport is the entry point for many of this year’s visitors to the 50th ICCA World Congress in Leipzig. From 22 to 26 October the trade fair city of Leipzig, which is situated in the German state of Saxony, will attract some 1,200 congress professionals from over 80 countries to discuss the future of the MICE industry.
The Frankfurt Rhine-Main Region has of course far more to offer than convenient traffic and transport facilities: It is a vibrant metropolitan region with historical significance, with an enormous economic strength that is well-known throughout the world and also with a diversified higher education landscape and academic scene.
The cities of Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, Mainz and Darmstadt, are very different from one another, and their centres are only just over 40 km apart. All of them have professional congress centres that fully satisfy their clients’ needs:
· The Congress Center on the premises of the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre,
· the Rhein-Main-Hallen and the Kurhaus Wiesbaden,
· the Congress Centrum Mainz and
· the Wissenschafts-und Kongresszentrum Darmstadt (the Darmstadt Science and Congress Centre)
On 25 October 2011 all five congress centres will be giving a joint lunch at the ICCA World Congress – an opportunity for delegates to receive further information about the metropolitan region while combining business and pleasure. The congress centres of the Frankfurt Rhine-Main Region are all situated at the heart of Germany’s biggest and most popular wine-growing area, between the Rhine and the Main, and the event will therefore be supported by Generation Riesling, an association of ambitious young wine growers.
Young, innovative and cosmopolitan – this is Generation Riesling, an association that represents German wine culture and which has become a prominent feature at numerous events both in Germany and elsewhere. It stands for a superbly trained, internationally focused and ambitious generation of young executives in Germany’s wine-growing industry.
