Finishing touches to new event venue Station Airport


“Are you ready for take off?” runs the slogan for the Station Airport, a new
special event venue at Düsseldorf International Airport. As from 2009, this
facility will turn Düsseldorf Airport into a prime address for event planners
and event-goers as well.

Directly overlooking the airport runways, the Station Airport event terminal
is a special venue unmatched anywhere else in Europe. This novel event
facility is marketed by DüsseldorfCongress, one of Europe’s biggest onestop
venue providers.

Part of the airport’s mainline railway station, Station Airport can boast an
ultra-modern flair, capacities for the very group sizes that are in heavy
demand, a central transport location, and breathtaking views. But the
absolute highlight of this distinctive venue is the view of Düsseldorf
Airport’s runways that it offers through the surrounding panorama windows.
Every day, up to 700 aircraft take off and touch down there. The open-air
terrace connected directly to it makes the planes seem close enough to

“The Station Airport is important to Düsseldorf Airport in terms of
expanding our B2B service infrastructure. No other airport can offer a
communication platform of this caliber. We look forward to embarking on
this project together with DüsseldorfCongress,” Christoph Blume,
management board spokesman at airport operator Flughafen Düsseldorf,

Hilmar Guckert, Managing Director of DüsseldorfCongress Veranstaltungsgesellschaft mbH, also has high hopes of the new facility: “We have already received countless inquiries for the Station Airport. With its unique location and atmosphere, it is perfectly in sync with the current trend in the events industry. Companies in particular are constantly in search of really out-of-the-ordinary, well-equipped special-event venues – so success is a given for the Station Airport.”

From mid-January 2009, the mainline railway station at Düsseldorf
International Airport will be available for functions with up to 1,650 people.
In the coming months, a glass partition wall will first be installed to screen
off the public station area and ensure that events take place in a secluded
and exclusive atmosphere. Additionally, all the facilities needed for smooth
event organization, such as dressing rooms, sanitary installations,
production offices, conference rooms, and a kitchen to reheat foods, are
being fitted.

Then, as from next year, around 3,900 m² of event space on two separate
levels will be ready to stage a wide variety of event concepts. The Station
Airport is conspicuous for its elegant architecture and authentic airport
ambience. It offers room for all manner of creative arrangements, be they
aftershow parties, fashion shows, kick-offs, galas, or product presentations.

Another unique feature is the Station Airport’s ideal location – as an
international hub, Düsseldorf Airport can boast perfect transport
connections. By air, rail, motorway, and coach – all routes lead directly to
the Station Airport. And the car parks already available at the airport
terminals provide plenty of parking space. On request, the SkyTrain will
whisk guests straight from the car parks to their event.
