14.07.2016: Live in Kap Europa – Percussion Night with Simone Rubino

In the context of the Rheingau Music Festival, the ESEGESI Percussion Quartet, made up of Simone Rubina, Sergey Mikhaylenko, Richard Putz and Christian Benning, will be bringing a new and highly individual programme to Kap Europa. The four young musicians plan to leave routine drum-play far behind them, casting their spell over listeners with entrancing rhythms, vibrant beats and creative solos. At the prestigious ARD Music Competition in 2014, Simone Rubino succeeded in convincing both the special jury and the general public, taking home not only the First Prize but also the Audience Prize in the Percussion category.

Kap Europa represents another milestone on this path,” says Uwe Behm, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt GmbH.

27.05.2014: Messe Frankfurt opens its new Kap Europa congress centre in the Europa district with an official ceremony

With some 500 guests in attendance, Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Messe Frankfurt, took the opportunity to emphasize the importance of the convention business to Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region as a whole:
With Kap Europa, Messe Frankfurt is expanding its facilities for congresses, conferences and other events for up to 2,400 participants. On a total of four event levels, it contains a hall for 1,000 people, a divisible hall for 600 people, and twelve further conference rooms. While the Congress Centre on the exhibition grounds is ideal for large-scale events requiring additional space, Kap Europa meets the need for a plenary hall complemented by multiple smaller rooms.

With its welcoming atmosphere and fine interiors, Kap Europa turns an event into an experience. High ceilings, good acoustics and an abundance of light create the perfect ambience.

A sustainable building that sets new standards – and nurtures a sense of wellbeing.

The first congress centre anywhere in the world to be awarded a platinum certificate by the German Sustainable Building Council, Kap Europa is a pioneer in every respect.

A meeting place that connects – people, trade fairs and the city.

Kap Europa is directly adjacent to the trade fairground and the Skyline Plaza shopping centre.

The situation

Conferences made easy

Kap Europa’s central location, with the exhibition grounds, city centre and hotels in easy reach, makes it easy to explore all the metropolis on the Main has to offer. What’s more, a shopping centre with a large rooftop garden directly next door provides the perfect opportunity to shop and relax.
