Leipzig: From progressive underdog to major player
The boom town of Leipzig has emerged as a hidden favourite of many international conference and event planners. With sustainability in action, Leipzig’s transformation into a top-tier player is in full swing. Coupled with the extraordinary rise of local football team RB Leipzig to Champions League level, the Saxon city is attracting international attention.
The demands placed on the perfect conference destination are high: excellent infrastructure, comfortable hotels and an open-minded culture are a must. At the same time, the place should be as unfamiliar and hip as possible.
Leipzig meets these criteria with ease. The congress initiative do-it-at-leipzig.de wants to show audiences at this year’s IMEX how.
The city’s unique position – somewhere between insider tip and top tier – will be the focus at the show: during a daily Coffee Happy Hour, visitors will not only be able to recharge their batteries, but will also see for themselves Leipzig’s pioneering role as a sustainable city. To symbolise this all of the stand elements will be made from recycled materials.
Leipzig was voted one of the most cyclist-friendly places in Germany, is conveniently compact, and ticks all the gastronomic boxes from vegan eateries to Michelin-starred cuisine. Affordable rents have been attracting artists for years, and students are founding successful start-ups. Parallel to this, numerous new venues and hotels are springing up.
The following partners will inspire you: Leipzig Tourismus und Marketing GmbH, Congress Center Leipzig, Leipzig Zoo, Porsche Leipzig as well as the hotels The Westin Leipzig and Leipzig Marriott Hotel.
Come and visit us at the Leipzig Stand F 150.
