More than 40 rooms and buildings are available on the 100-hectare site, ranging from a small studio to a large trade fair and exhibition hall. The seven event halls of the Zollverein Foundation are characterised by multifunctional rooms, modern technology and their authentic atmosphere.

This year, the 11th CultureInvest! Congress will take the place in six event locations with a total of 12 theme forums, an eve reception (including a nocturnal guided tour of the site) and the 14th Cultural Brand Gala - Night of Cultural Brands - on 7 November with the festive award ceremony of the European Cultural Brand Awards.
