#1  Enjoy Easy Access

An international airport with direct US flights that’s within walking – yes walking – distance from hotels like the Mövenpick, the Wyndham and the Messe Stuttgart (Stuttgart Exhibition Centre) & ICS International Congress Center Stuttgart offer ultimate accessibility. The Airport is a quick 25 minutes by car or public transport to the city center and Stuttgart is only a little over an hour from Frankfurt by speed train as well.

#2 Have a High Quality of “Meet”

Because it’s a great place to live and work,  it’s also a great place to meet.  Stuttgart has one of the strongest economies worldwide, a global vibe, lots of green space, a long tradition of winemaking, and 17 Michelin Star-Rated restaurants.

#3 Tap into Rich Meetings Infrastructure  

Stuttgart is meetings-ready with over 1 million square feet of space at Messe Stuttgart & ICS International Congress Center Stuttgart alone. The Culture and Congress Center Liederhalle, with 5 large halls and 12 conference rooms, is also in the heart of downtown and is connected to the Maritim Hotel Stuttgart featuring the historic “Alte Stuttgarter Reithalle” (old riding arena) for a truly unique event venue. Want to add additional horsepower? The Porsche and Mercedes-Benz Museums get hearts pounding with one-of-a-kind experiences.

#4 Innovation is Tops

Patents thrive here  -- in fact patent application rates are some of the strongest in Germany in Stuttgart. Companies also have the highest R&D spend in Europe in Stuttgart.  This means delegates can count on great opportunities to share knowledge and tap into the latest thinking from local R&D labs, institutes, universities and businesses.
