Home > Overview > Location Cologne

Welcome to Cologne

Our long-term visitors and exhibitors know: Cologne has much more to offer than the Cathedral and Carnival.

Located in the centre of the largest economic region the exhibition halls are situated in the city centre of Cologne. Around the corner of Benelux countries, it only takes one hour to arrive in Cologne by plane for 180 million european citizens.

This is where group tourism professionals meet.
