Greenmeetings and Events Conference to be Held in Messe Frankfurt's New Congress Center

The next greenmeetings and events conference will take place in Messe Frankfurt's new Kap Europa congress center, February 9 - 10, 2015.

The announcement was made by the conference's organisers, the German Convention Bureau (GCB) and the European Association of Event Centers (EVVC), at the closing ceremony of this year's greenmeetings and events conference 2013 in Darmstadt, Germany.

Matthias Schultze, Managing Director of the GCB said:  "Once again, we have succeeded in finding an ideal location for the greenmeetings and events conference. The Kap Europa congress center will meet outstanding sustainability standards and therefore be the perfect host for the event."

The Kap Europa congress center is currently under construction in the Europa district of the city of Frankfurt just a few minutes away from the trade fair site.  The congress center is due to open in summer 2014 and will offer a 1,000-seater hall, a divisible hall for 600 people and 12 conference rooms over four levels.

"After this year's outstanding greenmeetings and events conference, we are delighted to have been chosen to host this event in 2015. It will give us the opportunity to present a new sustainable destination to the sector: Kap Europa. Messe Frankfurt's new congress center has been designed for optimum sustainability throughout its life cycle in accordance with the standards defined by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB). We hope that this new standard will pioneer the way for future event centers," said Claudia Delius-Fisher, Director of Congress Frankfurt.

Kap Europa has already been awarded a Pre-Certificate in Gold by the German Sustainable Building Council for its high ecological standards - the first congress center to receive this recognition.

"As well as the participants and the program, the venue is one of the key factors responsible for the success and effectiveness of an event - and this is particularly true of the greenmeetings and events conference. Germany has a growing number of congress centers, which are setting new global standards in sustainability. We are delighted to be able to use this conference to highlight the strengths of these facilities," said Joachim König, President of the EVVC.
