At the centre of the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region

The Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region has twelve million inhabitants. And Düsseldorf, the state capital and international business centre, is therefore the perfect destination to host your event in the heart of one of the largest urban regions in Europe.

What is it that meeting planners and participants appreciate about our metropolis on the Rhine? On the one hand the special atmosphere between traditional community culture and progressive metropolitan flair - on the other hand the worldwide connected entrepreneur scene - whether with successful major corporations such as Henkel and Metro, or with high-tech start-ups like Trivago.

And when it comes to arts and culture, Düsseldorf plays in the major league: buildings designed by Daniel Libeskind, Sir Norman Foster and Frank Gehry define the urban landscape. The city is also home to some of Germany’s most illustrious museums and galleries, and has a vibrant music scene that produced bands such as Die Toten Hosen and Kraftwerk. The city’s list of advantages is long – unlike the distances from one hotspot to the next, which are short.
