Meet where stars appear
Your Meetropolis provides you with a wonderful choice of venues to suit your visitor numbers, occasion and required atmosphere. These range from an exclusive salon for informal chats to impressive rooms with historical flair and generous product presentation areas, through to state-of-the-art convention centres with multifunctional arenas for conventions and large events.
The Congress Centre of Koelnmesse, located centrally and equipped with a total of 19,500 seats, and the CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf, located near to the city centre and with room for 15,000 visitors, are the right addresses for conventions which are combined with exhibitions or for conferences requiring many large rooms simultaneously under a single roof. Both centres are directly connected to the adjacent trade fair centres. They are frequently booked by institutions, companies and associations.
Organisers of annual general meetings, major roadshows and other corporate events are offered adequate space and flexibility of design at the LANXESS arena, Mitsubishi Electric HALLE, ESPRIT arena, ISS DOME and CASTELLO Düsseldorf. Here the focus is on large numbers of visitors or the functional design of large rooms. International sporting events, galas and concerts are staged there.
Customised venues can be found in all the top areas of The Meetropolis. The Palladium and E-Werk venues, for example, combine the advantages of state-of-the-art event halls for 2,000-3,000 guests with an ambiance from the Wilhelminian era. Event guests in the impressive Gürzenich building or baroque Wolkenburg castle, for instance, enjoy attractive historical surroundings. Companies which meet in KölnSKY have a breathtaking view of the Rhine from an altitude of over 100 metres, and those holding conventions in the FRÜH Lounge of the traditional brewery of the same name are located right next to Cologne Cathedral. Original topical atmospheres are provided at the Chocolatemuseum, ZooLocation, RheinEnergieStadion, DB Chartertrain and on the charter ships of the KD Köln-Düsseldorfer Deutsche Rheinschiffahrt shipping company. Conventions and celebrations in an authentic airport atmosphere can be staged at the Station Airport, which is located directly next to Düsseldorf Airport's runway. Through the panorama windows and from the adjacent outdoor terrace, the aeroplanes seem so close you could touch them. "Silverware and cut glass" are displayed against a background of heavy industry at the Böhler Areal Düsseldorf, the old boiler house, the old feather factory and the Halle am Wasserturm. Convention participants can experience a unique 360° panorama view of Düsseldorf's skyline under the glass dome of SIGN! in the Medienhafen. With their long history, Eller castle and the Rhine terraces offer an exclusive setting for events. A remarkable location is provided by the Meilenwerk, in the midst of an exhibition of vintage cars and collectors' vehicles.
