Food Court Kap Europa

Street food court in Kap Europa

From futuristic to vintage, any event style is possible at Messe Frankfurt’s locations thanks to its creative service partners and highly flexible buildings. In February, street food and urban style were the order of the day: sushi on old oil drums and a nightcap in the gin bar in the alley around the corner – 800 participants cruised through the street food market recreated in Kap Europa, delighted at what they found there.

Scientists very impressed by Kap Europa

“We had almost twice as many congress participants as expected and are already looking forward to our next congress in Frankfurt!” says Prof. Klaus-Peter Hunfeld, Frankfurt Congress Ambassador and one of the Congress Presidents at the annual symposium of INSTAND e.V., Düsseldorf, and IGLD (Interdisciplinary Group for Laboratory and Flow Cytometry), which was held in Messe Frankfurt’s Kap Europa on 1 and 2 March 2018.
