Travel Diary #GCB Roadshow 2022
Meet Stuttgart! During our fourth Roadshow stop for this year, we explored beautiful Stuttgart and discovered all the great locations the city has to offer for events. Read on to find out why Stuttgart stands for innovation and invention like no other.
The Infoturm Stuttgart (ITS) provides information on the background of the Stuttgart-Ulm rail project, offers surprising insights and connects interested parties around the project and beyond. Therefore, the project invites everyone to form their own picture: In an interactive exhibition inside the tower, during exciting construction site tours or with events and campaigns on site as much as in the digital world – in all offerings, the project sees itself as a meeting point for the future of one of Europe's most spectacular construction projects, committed to knowledge transfer, exchange and future opportunities.
You would like to learn more about the project? During the event series "ITS Sunset Tours" visitors can expect a tour of the construction site followed by an evening on the roof terrace with local partner Wulle.
Our second stop was the Porsche Museum, a spectacular location for extra-special business events: An impressive entrance area, a multi-function space in the middle of the vehicle exhibit, a gallery with spinning discs and a wide and flexible conference area make for four unique event spaces in total, on which 150-200 events are held per year. Take your guests on an exclusive guided tour of the exhibitions, learn about the exciting history of Porsche and spend a fantastic evening "in the midst of over 30,000 horsepower".
At V8 hotel in Böblingen in the Stuttgart region the special automobile is part of the equipment! V8 themed rooms, numerous illustrations and various pieces of furniture made of real vehicle parts combine to form a spectacular enviroment für your event, promotion, convention or company gala. In addition to three conference rooms, the two large event areas "Power" and "Speed" can fit up to 200 guests. More incentives for your automobile-loving guests? As a special feature, vehicles with a weight of up to three tonnes can be brought up via a heavy-load lift and integrated into the programme.
Looking for an excellent networking place in Stuttgart? You’ve found it at EmiLu Hotel! The newly opened design hotel is family-run, named after the owner’s two most important women: His wife Petra-Luise and his daughter Emilia. The location in the heart of Stuttgart’s downtown, three stylish meeting rooms, the rooftop bar Lennart’s and a special focus on design and high-quality interior create a tasteful event location where everyone feels comfortable.
Did you know, that vinyards can be found only 300 meters away from the train station? In this destination between urbanity and steep slopes, wine is a magic word: One minute you find yourself in a hip hotspot in the city center, while only a few steps away you can enjoy the view over the vineyards. Stuttgarts offers colorful vines all the way to the city center, urban wine bars and rustic taverns, excellent winegrowers and wine hiking trails with a dream panorama. And in late summer, a lively wine village in the middle of the city with cozy arbors.
Where is Stuttgart currently meeting after work? For sure at the always long-awaited Stuttgarter “Weindorf”. Taking place since 45 years, 38 local restaurateurs are inviting you to sit together, meet your friends as well as business colleagues and have a delightful summer evening. The culinary focus is on regionality and seasonality: Schmücker Gastro & Catering GmbH is famous for its excellent roasted ox on a spit, served in a potatoe-dough bread.
The traditional "Waldschlössle", situated in a dreamlike panoramic location on the Kappelberg, overlooking the vinyards, creates a place for extraordinary events. The private and quiet atmosphere in the middle of nature makes the location a popular meeting place for business events, seminars and celebrations of all kinds. Stepping out into the idyllic countryside area between meetings, your guests will find themselves refreshed and their batteries recharged.
