Events increase the Appeal of the State Capital

Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event organises large, central events, thus contributing to the quality of life in the city and surrounding areas. Events are an economic factor for the entire region, an element of location marketing, and an image factor for the state capital. They increase the appeal, as well as the national and international recognition, of the destination. Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event’s venues are trusted infrastructural establishments for the local economic and scientific institutions.

Economic Factor and Employer for the Region

Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event markets the state capital nationally and internationally as an event location, thus contributing continuously to the economic strength of the city.

More than anything else, the collateral implications of events are relevant here: visitors of conventions, corporate events, sports events, concerts, and shows leave money in the city, for example at hotels and restaurants, in retail shops and with public transportation.

Furthermore, Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event is an important employer and labour motor in Düsseldorf and the region. The company has approximately 130 direct employees, and — according to an ifo study — secures 3,215 jobs in Düsseldorf alone. Up to 3,000 persons are employed directly in Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event venues on days with full, parallel occupancies, in positions such as security, catering, or technical services.

In addition, Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event is active as a training facility in the region. The company trains event management assistants, as well as event technicians, thus offering college graduates a start in the meeting industry through trainee programmes.
