How to arrive
Easy to reach from anywhere in the world
Thanks to its location between the airport and motorway, the trade fair centre has an incomparable traffic infrastructure.
Direct connections to the A8 motorway, the B27 trunk road, the airport, the S-Bahn and, in future, the planned railway station for local and long-distance trains will ensure that visitors and exhibitors will be able to travel quickly and easily to the trade fair centre.
Stuttgart International Airport is located at the heart of Europe. Direct proximity to the exhibition centre makes it easy and convenient to attend the trade fair, even just for one day.
The trade fair and convention facilities are just about 200 metres by foot from the airport terminals.
