These congress centres work together as equal partners with the successful colleagues of SevenCenters”, said Jan Gerrit Ebener, Head of Guest Events & Congresses, speaking for the NürnbergConvention Center.

The first big event for the new SevenCenters line-up will be the IMEX, to be held in Frankfurt from 14 to 16 May. The alliance will come together next in the summer in Nuremberg to discuss platforms for sharing experiences and ideas.
