3M – Infection Prevention Expert Conference
For several years now, IQ Incoming organizes conferences, meetings and congresses at home and abroad for 3M Germany and for several other companies of this multinational conglomerate cooperation.
In our hometown Cologne as e.g. we have arranged for 3M Germany a conference lasting several days for more than 150 international experts in the field of infection prevention.
As conference location our partner 3M chose from our portfolio the historical “Sartory Säle” – a conference centre in the 3rd generation – located at the heart of Cologne. Already in the 30s glittering carnival revues took place at the “Sartory halls”, later they were used as Colognes first wide screen cinema and for boxing matches. Today the halls belong to one of the most popular event locations in Cologne. Apart from the Ostermann-hall as conference room (Willi Ostermann was a famous composer from Cologne and made traditional music), there were different information desks about the different subjects of the conference. Aside from the location, we also have organized the whole conference technique and catering for our customer.
Of course the guests were accommodated in walking distance to the event venue at the “Pullman Hotel Cologne” and at the “Lindner Hotel City Plaza”, where the dinner on the first evening took place.
On the second day, guests were picked up by several coaches in the early evening for a short guided city tour incl. visit of the Cologne cathedral. Afterwards a proper “Kölsch-evening” took place at the exclusively rented cellar of the traditional brewery “Früh am Dom “. So the experts from different nations could exchange ideas in an informal atmosphere.
