Federal Delegates' Conference of Alliance 90/The Greens at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre

40 years of Bündnis 90/DIE GRÜNEN: Over 2,750 delegates celebrate the party's anniversary in the halls of the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre.

Looking back on the birth of the party over 40 years ago in the fan-shaped city, 2,750 delegates from Alliance 90/The Greens are gathering at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre until Sunday. They will belatedly celebrate their 40th party anniversary with the election of the Federal Executive Committee and the adoption of the election programme for the European elections. The party conference can be followed online via livestream at www.gruene.de. With an impressive event area of 30,000 square metres, around seven days to set up and numerous technical experts and service partners, the BÜNDNIS 90/DIE GRÜNEN Federal Delegates' Conference will be one of the highlights of the 2023 event portfolio for the employees of Messe Karlsruhe, as the Messe Karlsruhe team actively assisted the organisers with the organisation and implementation before, during and after the conference.

The 2020 event was originally planned to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Green Party in Karlsruhe. However, it was postponed due to the pandemic. Plans were now made behind the scenes for over six months. Not only the organisers and the team from Messe Karlsruhe were involved in the preparations, but the BKA, LKA and Karlsruhe police were also involved due to the high-calibre political celebrities.

"The fact that Karlsruhe is once again hosting current political events once again emphasises the national importance of the fan-shaped city as a city of democracy and law. Events like these are only possible thanks to the combination of different know-how and specialist expertise; we all work hand in hand here. We would therefore like to thank everyone involved for their constructive and cooperative partnership," says Holger Klanfer, Director Congress & Cultural Events at Messe Karlsruhe.

Behind the scenes: Set-up and preparations for the Federal Delegates' Conference in the dm-arena

While expoSE - Europe's leading trade fair for asparagus and berry production - and expoDirekt - Germany's largest trade fair for direct agricultural marketing - were taking place at the same time in exhibition halls 1 and 2, the team from Messe Karlsruhe began setting up the exhibition halls a week before the event to prepare them for the party conference. Over the next four days of the event, half of the dm-arena will be used as exhibition space and the other half as a plenum. Hall 3 will also be occupied, with two additional conference rooms and the crew area. The light-flooded action hall will be transformed into an event location on two evenings and the conference level will offer sufficient space for meetings. Around 20 service partners of Messe Karlsruhe are on site, including cleaning staff and technical service providers. During the event itself, 140 people in the security area and almost 100 catering staff will ensure that everything runs smoothly.
