ruhr-tourismusThe aim of the joint trade fair presentation is to further increase the number of events and the number of visitors in the coming years. The Ruhr Area wants to become one of the leading conference, congress and even location in Germany. 6.5 percent more events than in the previous year already prove: something is happening in the far west!

The 6.2 million participants visited mostly one-day conferences and congresses at the Ruhr. The central location within Germany and the good traffic connections enable a quick and comfortable arrival. Axel Biermann, managing director of Ruhr Tourismus GmbH: “15 of the 100 companies with the highest turnover in Germany are situated in the Ruhr Metropolis. Added to that, the Ruhr Metropolis has five universities with three medical faculties, 15 universities of applied sciences and an art academy. Those are ideal criteria for establishing the region as one of the leading conference, congress and event locations in Europe.”

Former mining industry sites belong to the most impressive and at the same time unique event locations in the Ruhr Metropolis. Whether the UNESCO World Heritage Site Zollverein, the Colosseum Theatre Essen, the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum or the Duisburg-Nord Landscape Park: the charm of the impressive industrial culture makes the Ruhr Area unique in Germany. A total of 365 high-quality event locations and 138 specialised conference hotels offer a large, high class range of services, no matter whether it’s for a small conference or a big congress. The conference planner at www.ruhrmeeting.de offers a quick and simple overview of services offered.

RUHR.MEETING is presenting itself together with its partners Jahrhunderthalle Bochum, UNESCO World Heritage Site Zollverein, Colosseum Theater Essen, Duisburg-Nord Landscape Park, Kongresszentrum Westfalenhallen, ESSEN.CONVENTION. and the Congress Center Essen.
