Admittedly, after our most recent construction management we couldn´t wait for November: Since 2016, the scenery around the exhibition grounds has been shaped by excavators, loaders and hundreds of construction workers, but now the "new" Messe Essen has opened the first finished building section in a ceremony this November.
Not only is the modernisation of the exhibition grounds giving rise to one of the most modern exhibition centres in Germany: With the simultaneous reopening of the Congress Centre East, the ATLANTIC is now part of one of the most modern event locations in the country. Or event complex, as we like to call it. Still in the middle of Essen, right at the Grugapark and the Essen gastronomy and boutique strip "RÜ".
Over 90 million euros were invested in urban flair, brightness and the latest technology. The possibilities? Pretty much unlimited: Now we offer a total of 24 conference rooms including the "Grugahalle”, excluding our business suites. A new guest lounge and a VIP club with its own entrance will also be available after the final completion of the total area.
The highlight is the 2,000 m² new glass lobby from "Messe-Ost" with a distinctive canopy, which can be used as a multifunctional event or exhibition area and includes a huge video wall to set the scene effectively. How about an evening event for your conference directly across at the ATLANTIC? Transport costs? No more! In addition to the existing halls Essen and Ruhr in the Congress Centre East with adjoining lobbies, seven new rooms are also being built; perfect as a group or workshop space, complementing ATLANTIC's range of smaller venues. The latest presentation and sound technology as well as variable room sizes thanks to flexible separation possibilities are part of the package. The whole network is connected to the ATLANTIC Essen via fibre optic cable. And if you ever need a larger exhibition space for your event, then simply use the new adjacent Hall 8 of Messe Essen. Listen, this is a must-see place!
