Meet, exchange, experience:
The IEC Campus in Frankfurt am Main

The events of the 80th IEC General Meeting 2016 in Frankfurt am Main will be held in various locations around the city - which together form the IEC Campus. The exhibition centre is in the heart of the event, along with the innovative Kap Europa convention centre. Management meetings as well as many TC/SC meetings will be held at Kap Europa. The
„Reinvention Laboratory", a forum for exchanging experiences and ideas, will also take place on the top floor of this inspiring building. Special events require special locations: The IEC General Meeting will celebrate its official opening in the Festhalle, the famous festival hall at Messe Frankfurt. Attractive locations all over Frankfurt am Main will be
provided for the dinner for NC Presidents and NC Secretaries as well as for the large farewell event. Especially for the IEC GM 2016 there will be a Networking Evening for the large number of TC/SC Chairmen and Secretaries.

Along with spacious function rooms, smaller meeting rooms will play an important role in this event. Corridors and lounge areas will provide opportunities to get to know other delegates and exchange ideas. The diverse nature of the city provides scope for new experiences and insights. The German National Committee will be delighted to offer participants from all over the world a chance to explore the IEC Campus and the city of Frankfurt am Main.
