Messe Stuttgart and the ICS. Many new events are set to take place on the exhibition grounds in Stuttgart in 2015 and the years to come. The diversity of sectors is remarkable – medical science, finance, manufacturing technology and engineering. More and more companies, associations, trade groups and event managers are choosing the ICS International Congress Center Stuttgart and the exhibition halls at Stuttgart airport.
Stuttgart's image as an industrial and high-tech location will, for example, be greatly enhanced by the KSS trade fair, an exclusive dialogue platform for the coolant and lubricant industry, taking place from 5 to 7 May 2015. The KSS trade fair will take place in tandem with Moulding Expo, the international trade fair for tool, pattern and mould-making, which is a new product of Messe Stuttgart.
In the second half of the year (September 2015), Stuttgart will welcome Intergeo again, the world's leading conference trade fair for geodesy, geoinformation and land management. More than 16,000 visitors from 92 countries make it a key platform for the industry around the world.
On 3 December 2015, top-class marketing professionals, the latest industry topics and high-level networks will take centre stage in the ICS on the 42nd German Marketing Day.
Two further events in particular stand out from the new congresses. In November 2015, Structured Finance will debut in Stuttgart, the leading event in Germany for financial decision-makers in companies. The organisers have signed a three-year contract with the Guest Events division of Messe Stuttgart. More than 1,300 participants are expected.
In October 2016, the 61st Conference of the German Society of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians (DGGG) will focus on the topic of "Women's Health – Responsibility and Prospects". With more than 7,000 members, DGGG is one of the largest medical associations in Germany. Internationally renowned experts will hold presentations about medical and technical innovations and inspire an audience of 3,500 people.
"At Messe Stuttgart and the ICS, being cost-effective and efficient goes hand in hand with triggering emotions and personal experiences," says Stefan Lohnert, Division Director Guest Events. "Organisers, exhibitors and visitors can reap the benefits offered by tandem events and generic formats. These acquisitions will raise Stuttgart's profile as a venue for important congresses and international trade fairs and will also boost the local economy."
