Second JSWD building block for koelnmesse 3.0
In the presence of Mona Neubaur, NRW Minister of Economic Affairs, Lord Mayor Henriette Reker and Exhibition Director Gerald Böse, the topping-out ceremony for the multifunctional congress building called Confex® was celebrated today.
As part of the "koelnmesse 3.0" investment program, the first step was the replacement of Hall 1. Confex® will now be built on its former site by 2024. Its cubature will fit harmoniously into the ensemble of the inner-city trade fair site and, together with Hall 1, will then form the structural conclusion to the adjacent Rhine Park to the west. Thanks to the flexible use of its conference rooms of different sizes and the combination with the neighboring Hall 1, Confex® will enable a combination of trade fair, congress and event in the future and offer space for up to 6,000 visitors.
