Welcome to Leipzig: UEFA EURO 2024 host city

Teamwork for a football festival and beyond 

Leipzig is a UEFA EURO 2024™ host city. Leipzig is therefore one of ten German cities that will host the tournament this summer. Alongside the matches in the stadium, there will be a vibrant celebration of football in the city centre. The perfect opportunity for many thousands of fans from all over Europe to enjoy Leipzig’s hospitality and outward-looking attitude. They will discover a city with an impressive past, an exciting cultural scene and a present that the locals just love. These and other reasons are what make Leipzig a popular conference destination. Both UEFA EURO 2024™and Leipzig’s busy conference calendar show that this is a city that values teamwork.

A strong network for your conference in Leipzig

An efficient and experienced team

We are better together – this is the philosophy behind the congress initiative “Feel the spirit … do-it-at-leipzig.de”, a network of around 50 partners. It includes conference venues and hotels as well as service agencies, PCOs, mobility partners and more. As an organiser, you will benefit from this network’s many years of collaboration and experience. You will receive helpful suggestions and tailor-made support for the planning and implementation of your conference. The Leipzig Convention Bureau is your first port of call. Personal contact partners provide you with a wide range of services. And the congress initiative partners are then just a phone call or click away.

Joining forces as ambassadors for Leipzig

Stand at IMEX 2024

Do you already know some of Leipzig’s conference venues? Or perhaps you have heard a lot about Leipzig? This is precisely what the congress initiative wants. And it’s why the partners like to join forces to present themselves as ambassadors for Leipzig. The best example of this? IMEX in Frankfurt. From 14 to 16 May, just follow the glowing Leipzig lettering to experience it for yourself. The Congress Center Leipzig (CCL), Zoo Leipzig, the Porsche Experience Center Leipzig, the Leipzig Marriott Hotel, The Westin Leipzig and the Leipzig Convention Team from Leipzig Tourismus und Marketing GmbH are all taking part in the joint trade fair stand. So there are six good reasons to stop by at stand G155!

100,000 trees for the ‘forest championship’

Promoting ecological sustainability 

In Leipzig, this special interplay works – and sustainability is no exception. UEFA EURO 2024™ was the inspiration for the latest project: the ‘forest championship’. This major tree-planting campaign was initiated by Zoo Leipzig, the German Football Association (DFB), the company EURO 2024 GmbH and the German Ministry of the Interior. Their aim: to plant 2024 trees for each of the 51 European Championship matches in Germany. And everyone involved is convinced: “With 100,000 trees, we will be forest champions”. Partners from the congress initiative are actively supporting Zoo Leipzig on the ground – by donating trees, of course! Leipzig reached its own target with a planting campaign in March: for each of the four European Championship matches to be played here, 2024 trees were planted, for a total of 8096.

Sustainable collaboration

Leipzig’s ideas for the future

The ‘forest championship’ is a good fit for Leipzig. The focus is on sustainability as an issue for the future. This common goal benefits from the special sense of togetherness in Leipzig. Sustainable mobility is part of everyday life and is discussed at conferences. Zoo Leipzig was awarded the 2023 German Sustainability Award. Several of Leipzig’s hotels are Certified Green Hotels. The trade fair company Leipziger Messe is certified according to Green Globe standards. And these are just a few of many examples. With this wealth of ideas, Leipzig offers plenty of inspiration for sustainability in practice.

Strong team for medical congresses

Bids with a strong case

A glance at the congress calendar will show: Leipzig’s team spirit never fails to impress. Large medical congresses with participants from all over the world are the perfect example. Renowned Leipzig players from the fields of medicine and research invite their colleagues to Leipzig. The necessary capacity is available at locations such as the CCL. The city itself supports bids in line with its cluster strategy. As a location, Leipzig has a strong commitment to sustainability. And all partners from the congress initiative will contribute to the success of the event. This ensures a congress with satisfied organisers and delegates who love their experience of Leipzig. What better advertisement could there be for a location?
