The VDI drivetrain congress is moving to Bonn

The international VDI congress “Drivetrain for Vehicles“ is moving house.  
From 2017 the international drivetrain congress will be held in the heart of the former government district of the former federal capital Bonn, opposite the German headquarters of the United Nations. 

The conference building - opened in 2015 -  impresses with its extraordinary design and high-tech facilities. Due to its central location, it can easily be reached by car, rail and air.
Its significance for the German history, combined with sophistication and the cosy feeling which is typical for the Rhine area, add that special touch to any event held in the city of Bonn.  Let yourself be inspired by the city’s unique atmosphere.
