Essen, one of the top ten cities in Germany, is in the middle of the Ruhr metropolitan region.

The outstanding infrastructure of public transport and the Düsseldorf Airport only 20 minutes away make arrival and departure very convenient. The efficient transportation network on-site allows for short, quick access to all the city's highlights.

Around 100 hotels in different price ranges, including 20 hotels in close proximity to the exhibition centre, also offer reasonable prices and adequate capacities during exhibition periods. A further 200 accommodations are available in neighboring towns.

It only takes a five-minute-walk to reach the popular dining and nightlife area Rüttenscheider Straße - simply called "Rü" by Essen locals. In this quarter you will find a vibrant, authentic scene where local pubs invite you to linger.

In just five minutes on the U 11, you will reach the city centre, with a rich cultural offering, a bustling pedestrian area and numerous cafes and restaurants.

And for those who truly want to relax, the “Spa on site” located only one minute away at the Grugapark will impress you with its Asian ambiance and pure rejuvenation potential.
