Banner recycling

Were you aware? Old things can be made new. The banner that once advertised your event may have outlived its usefulness, but a Frankfurt workshop for the handicapped offers a means of recycling it. In it, they transform PVC banners into individual and unique customer gifts in the form of chic shoulder bags. If you are interested, we would be happy to put you in touch.

Barrier-free access  

Neither within the building nor in the Skyline Plaza car park is movement impeded by barriers. Along Osloer Straße, there are public parking places for the disabled.

In the course of a tour of the rooms you have booked in the company of a representative of the facility engineering team, a note is made of any pre-existing damage in a handover log.  At the end of the tour, this is then signed by both parties. This formality over, you may begin building up for your event. When you have finished breaking down after the event, a similar procedure is conducted and a handback log created.
In this way, we seek to ensure that the building and the equipment in it are treated with respect and that any damage that does occur is imputed only to those who actually caused it.
