Unbeatable location, infrastructure and transport links: Europe's most modern and architecturally ambitious exhibition and convention centre opened in Stuttgart in autumn 2007.
The new Stuttgart exhibition centre is the showroom for Baden-Württemberg's export-oriented economy. 'At the heart of the market', it brings together supply and demand under one roof and has a strong focus on service. It hosts approximately 40 of its own trade fairs and exhibitions every year, plus around 20 guest events as well as conventions, conferences, company presentations and other events.
The highlights of the Stuttgart trade fair calendar are R+T (the leading international trade fair for roller shutters, doors, gates and sun protection systems), AMB (metalworking trade fair), CMT (Europe's largest public exhibition for the leisure and tourism industry), Intervitis Interfructa (wine and fruit juice production), Intergastra, Interbad and the Retro Classics car show. Other guest trade fairs include Motek, Control, Blechexpo, Medtec, LogiMAT and the Automotive Engine Expo.
Since its new premises opened in 2007, Stuttgart Exhibition Centre has seen revenue and visitor numbers double. It also ranks no. 1 in Germany in terms of occupancy rate and eco-friendliness. More than half of the site is green space, and the solar panels on the hall roofs and the Bosch car park above the A8 autobahn generate electricity for 1,350 households.
