Darmstadt venue visitor numbers up nearly 10%

The Science and Congress Centre in Darmstadt, Germany (or ‘darmstadtium’) has recorded increasing numbers of visitors in the first half of 2009.

Around 90 000 people participated in events in the venue from January till the end of June.

"This means an increase of just below 10% compared to the same period of the previous year," said venue manager Hildegard Schoger.

For the second half of the year, too, the number of bookings for the largest event location in the Southern Hesse region of Germany is high.

"We will certainly top last year's result of 160,000 visitors, whatever happens," said a confident Schoger.

Among the highlights in the coming six months include the Federal Conference of Young Managers in September, which should attract 1,500 young entrepreneurs and leading executives. There’s also the1st Darmstadt Engineer's congress.

"The outlook for 2010 is also positive," said Schoger, who pointed to booking options and commitments reaching as far as 2014.

Last year, the total expenditure of all event participants in Darmstadt has been estimated at around €20 million –  a huge boost to the local economy.

This year is looking even better, and Schoger expects a significant increase in bookings from abroad as a result of the cooperation with the German Convention Bureau.

"The number of inquiries has already increased considerably," she said.
