Thanks to its location between the airport and the motorway, the Stuttgart Trade Fair and Congress Centre creates perfect conditions for travelling to and from the event. Direct connections to the A8 motorway, the B27 trunk road, the airport, the S-Bahn (rapid transit railway) and public transport ensure pleasantly short distances within minutes.
For the environmentally conscious there is also a rail event ticket available. Book here.
The A8 motorway (east-west connection) runs directly next to the exhibition grounds. Several exits allow a time-saving arrival and departure. Visitors and exhibitors also have access to the north-south axis of the A81 after a short journey.
The exhibition grounds are not located within the no diesel zone.
27 minutes without changing trains: Two S-Bahn lines (S2 and S3) offer the fastest connection between Stuttgart's main station and the trade fair centre almost around the clock. The trade fair centre stop is 200 m from the entrance.
The international airport connects Stuttgart directly with 123 local and long-distance destinations in 30 countries. Up to 400 planes take off and land here every day. Short waiting times and excellent service ensure a relaxed arrival and departure for over 10 million passengers per year.
It is only a few minutes' walk from the airport to the ICS Stuttgart.

Baden-Württemberg is one of the leading economic regions not only in Germany but also Europe: Home to internationally renowned corporations and thousands of successful small and medium-sized enterprises, known for its innovative drive and inventive spirit, with a high level of productivity and low unemployment.
Baden-Württemberg is an industrial and export-intensive state with world-renowned industrial giants such as Daimler, Bosch and IBM Germany. However, the economic structure is characterized by numerous medium-sized companies, which are often global market leaders in their respective product segments. Growth in the knowledge-intensive service industries with close links to the manufacturing sector is of great importance for the economic development of Baden-Württemberg.
Here, where the automobile was invented, around a quarter of industrial turnover is now accounted for by the leading sector of automotive engineering with its many suppliers, closely followed by mechanical and plant engineering (around 20 percent) and the metal and electrical industry (around 7 percent each). The chemical, pharmaceutical and optical industries also play important roles.
Stuttgart - one of the most beautifully situated cities in Europe - is by no means to be envied solely because of its location and its many parks, gardens and forests. Stuttgart is more than the capital of the German state of Baden-Württemberg, more than an active congress and business metropolis.
Stuttgart is a city with interesting sights, with a world-famous ballet, with outstanding cultural and sporting highlights, with varied leisure and entertainment opportunities and an international variety theatre.
Charmingly embedded in one of the largest wine-growing regions of Germany, Stuttgart is fascinating on the one hand because of its magnificent panorama, the beautiful squares, the magnificent castles and buildings of different architectural styles and on the other hand because of its diverse cultural offerings.
