Es­sen Con­ven­tion Bur­eau


Green meet­ings in the green fair-trade city fam­ous for its breath-tak­ing in­dus­tri­al her­it­age.

Essen is one of the hearts of the Ruhr Area. It would be entirely wrong to imagine a dreary industrial backdrop, however: Essen even holds the title of “European Green Capital 2017”. It is a fair-trade city offering environmentally friendly and sustainable “Green Meetings”, focusing as much on mobility, energy, and climate as on resources, catering, and communication.

Essen offers a great supporting programme, with excursion options including the UNESCO World Heritage Site Zeche Zollverein, the venerable Villa Hügel of the Krupp family, and the Folkwang Museum.

Essen is easy to reach from any direction, both on the highway and by plane. All major long-distance trains, including the ICE and Metropolitan, stop at Essen Central Station. Essen Convention helps organisers plan and implement their events in the green Ruhr region.
