The Saxony city won out in the race to hold this prestigious specialist event in the face of competition from Dubai/Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), as well as Pittsburgh (USA).  According to the international ICCA judges, the Leipzig region is distinguished by its high potential for innovation, has attracted global players such as BMW, Porsche and DHL and was home to important research centres. These include several Max Planck institutes, institutes and centres run by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft and the Leibniz-Gemeinschaft, as well as Leipzig University and the Medical Faculty of the Leipzig University Clinic.

“Leipzig looks forward to the event experts from all over the world! We will seize this unique opportunity to showcase as convincingly as possible our city’s broad spectrum from business through science to culture – so that our guests take with them this message of a diverse and lively Leipzig and want to visit us again. As a cosmopolitan city of trade fairs and conventions, of research, music and art, Leipzig will show itself from its best side – as an exciting, modern and creative city packed with energy. This event is absolutely certain to boost the international appeal of our city”

This international event will bring new ways of doing business in Germany, thus in Europe. Germany is already one of the big players on the international convention and congress sectors. Improving ecology, economic and socially sustainable are within the main points of this convection.

“The 50th ICCA Congress in Leipzig will develop visions for tomorrow’s business.”
