There’s No Place Like HOLM
Imagine an environment of stimulating inter-industry and interdisciplinary dialog, where start-ups, established businesses and leading research and academic institutions come together to tackle pressing business issues around mobility, infrastructure, transportation, logistics, solutions and more. Put that think tank and business incubator at the intersection of Frankfurt’s bustling airport, the highway and the train system – and in the midst of industry-leading transportation and mobility companies -- and you’ve got HOLM – the House of Logistics and Mobility. Now imagine your next logistics/mobility meeting or conference there, taking advantage of HOLM’s conference space as well as its intellectual and innovative power. You get the picture: a show stopper conference that taps into extensive resources that can address everything from transportation essentials for meetings of the future to supply chain, logistics and mobility priorities for the next ten years.
As a growing innovation and knowledge center where the processes of moving goods and moving people meet, HOLM has a variety of common and public areas for brainstorming, collaborative meetings, even exhibits. A large auditorium, lounge, exhibit area and various meeting spaces are complimented by an airy, light-filled atrium, as well as a deck and outdoor space for workshops and other activities.
Approximately half of its current occupancy is academic institutions; 20 have set up an active presence in the HOLM. The remaining tenants are businesses – a combination of start-ups, mid-sized and large organizations. Just this summer Fraunhofer IML opened its new Center for Logistics and Mobility in the HOLM, where researchers will delve into mobility, aviation logistics, purchasing, finance, supply chain management and more. Additionally, the International School of Management, a private business school, just took space in the HOLM, an example of one of the many leading education institutions sharing space and ideas there.
The HOLM overlooks Frankfurt Airport, where more than 4,400 flights depart for over 300 destinations each week. The area is the single most accessible point in all of Europe, according to a survey conducted by the European Spatial Planning Observation Network (ESPON). Rimming the airport and included in this section of Frankfurt are the “Gateway Gardens” with offices of dozens of significant German and international logistics, transportation and mobility companies. It is anticipated that more than 11,000 jobs will be created throughout the Gateway Gardens district once it is completed in six years. The HOLM will continue to grow along with the rest of Gateway Gardens, anticipating over 100 tenants when it is fully built out. With its stellar location and broad mix of businesses, labs, and academic institutions all focused on sustainable logistics and mobility, the HOLM can be a welcome center of expertise to include in your next meeting or conference.
