Booster for sustainable growth: Kap Europa




On April 12 of this year, Messe Frankfurt announced the name of its congress center still under construction. "The congress center will be called Kap Europa (pictured)," said Uwe Behm, member of the Frankfurt Messe executive board at a press conference. "This name makes reference to the Europaviertel district itself, but also to the striking design of the building. Together with the neighboring Skyline Plaza shopping center, Kap Europa will be a highlight in this district which, with its innovative hotel and office buildings and top city apartments, is a byword for internationality and sustainable growth." At that occasion, he also presented the new logo reflecting the peaked-shaped architecture; the logo will be Messe Frankfurt's signature emblem in international marketing activities.

With this new center, the Frankfurt expo operator is adding to its range of facilities in the sphere of congresses, meetings, incentives and events. "Our existing venue capacity is booked out and we need to meet the growing demand from our customers in the congress and conference business," said Claudia Delius-Fisher, Director Congress Frankfurt. On altogether four levels there will be a hall for 1,000 persons, a partitionable hall for 600 persons as well as 12 meeting and conference rooms.

The concept is a coproduction between Messe Frankfurt and the joint-venture partners ECE Projektmanagement and CA Immo Deutschland actually implemented by ECE architects. Construction work on Kap Europa and the neighboring shopping center is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013; plans are to put the congress facility into operation in summer 2014. To assure compliance with the strictest sustainability requirements on construction and operation of the center, management aims to have its project certified by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).
