The most important event in German tourism: International and glamorous start in the Grand Hall ZOLLVEREIN

Six o'clock in the evening, Zollverein. More than 900 guests, including 100 journalists, from all over the world stream into the Grand Hall. In the best of moods, although a long day lies behind them: Guided tours of the most famous soccer stadiums in the Ruhr region, the Folkwang Museum and, of course, the Zollverein World Heritage Site - just a small excerpt of the program that EMG - Essen Marketing GmbH has put together for the top representatives of the international travel industry and media landscape.

With the glittering evening event in the Grand Hall, the Germany Travel Mart (GTM), the most important networking event of the German travel industry, is officially opened by Essen's Lord Mayor Thomas Kufen. This is followed by live entertainment of which the Ruhr region is justly proud: URBANATIX with their street art acrobatics, dizzying acrobatics by the GOP Varieté and an excerpt from the "Dance Homage to Queen" by the Aalto Music Theater.

"Guests completely surprised"

The Managing Director of Essen Marketing GmbH, Richard Röhrhoff, is enthusiastic: "We have managed to completely surprise the guests." The extraordinary mix of entertainment, information, show and, of course, good food certainly contributed to this. But above all, the atmospheric ambience in the Grand Hall, which invites people to celebrate and network. "We are dealing with an absolute first-class location here," says Röhrhoff. "The Grand Hall team has implemented everything for us to the letter."
