Aachen lies in the heart of Europe and is accessible from all directions by train, which is the most environmentally friendly travel option. Intercity-Express (ICE) high-speed trains connect Aachen with most major cities in Germany. Thanks to a cooperation with Deutsche Bahn you will be able to travel on an event ticket, an offer that will be made available only at this conference website. If you are coming from abroad, the Thalys high-speed train service connects Aachen with Amsterdam, Paris, and Brussels. And, via Brussels you can connect to London and the UK rail network on the Eurostar high-speed railway service.
Once you are here, you will discover that EAC 2020 is a conference of short distances. We have chosen a centralized conference location that is in easy walking distance from most hotels and the city center. There is no need to use a car, and while there are good public transport links to the venue, they won’t be needed by the majority of attendees.
The venue of EAC 2020 is one of the pioneers in sustainable corporate management and in organizing resource-efficient events. As one of the first convention centers in Germany, Eurogress has been awarded the Green Globe Certificate of the EVVC (European Association of Event Centers e.V.) for comprehensive measures in environmental protection. In 2013 and 2015, Eurogress received the „Meeting Experts Green Award“ for sustainable personnel management, and was a nominee in the health management category in 2017. Some of the measures put in place by Eurogress include energy efficient air conditioning and lighting systems, separating and avoiding waste, and the cooperation with regional suppliers and service providers. All EAC 2020 attendees are asked to use the waste separation bins in the conference area provided by Eurogress.
