When markets and people from all over the world choose Germany for their meetings and when new products are launched and successful ventures get off the ground at German trade fairs, conferences and conventions, it's good news for the environment. Germany's easily accessible venues, eco-friendly transport and sustainably run congress centres and hotels are good enough reasons for planning exhibitions and conventions in Germany. This is a country whose hallmarks are innovation, sustainability and environmental awareness – and it offers business travellers unparalleled benefits.
With 17 international airports, high-quality roads and extremely well-synchronised rail connections, just getting to Germany is a pleasure. Sparing use of resources, innovative energy concepts and a focus on seasonal and regional products to create food that is always healthy and delicious are standard in many convention centres and hotels. Outstanding transport connections to urban centres mean that nights out are easily arranged. Germany's vibrant cities with their bars, restaurants and cafés, entertainment and packed calendar of events make for lasting memories – a different aspect of sustainability.
