ELF 2024 Düsseldorf: Overview of the event locations
The city of Düsseldorf, a thriving metropolis on the banks of the Rhine, serves as the main venue for the ELF Convention 2024. The modern conference hotel Kö59 is centrally located, providing convenient access to all other important locations of the ELF Convention.
Düsseldorf entices visitors not only with its multitude of museums and galleries but also as an optimal host city for the ELF Convention. Its perfect connectivity to the international airport and the surrounding area's abundance of attractions make it an ideal choice.
Just around the corner and within walking distance from the hotel, you'll find the famous Königsallee boulevard, one of Europe's leading luxury shopping streets. With its array of boutiques such as Armani, Dior, Jil Sander and other well-known brands, it invites you for a delightful shopping experience. Stretching nearly 87 meters from one building facade to another, the "KÖ" is the widest street in Germany.
All the recommended hotels are located in close proximity and can be reached within a few steps.
On Friday evening, the ELF and Interkey invite you to a special event. The MS RheinGalaxie, a ship exclusively booked for the guests of the ELF Convention, will host the gala dinner. Enjoy the ambiance and witness Düsseldorf's impressive Media Harbor from the riverside. The interplay of lights against the vibrant life on the Rhine, combined with the event onboard, promises an extraordinary evening.
