Aachen is a region of growing economic and scientific importance. It is home to four universities, of which RWTH Aachen is the largest. It has maintained its status of excellence since 2007 and is responsible for generating approximately 900 million euro per year. The ongoing cooperation between science and industry is reviving Aachen as a convention venue. No matter whether it is a textile conference or a colloquium for vehicle and engine technology, the aachen convention promises unique possibilities and locations. For example, how about a get-together in the VIP area of the Tivoli Stadium or a meeting in the renovated industrial halls of the former tramway depot?
