19th International Conference on Plasma Surface Engineering

SEPTEMBER 2 ÔÇô 5, 2024


Erfurt is located in the heart of Germany and has excellent infrastructure. Erfurt-Weimar Airport in the immediate vicinity, the ICE junction in the city centre, city railway line 2 with its stop at the trade fair site and a direct link to the motorway network ensure that the location is very convenient for our visitors, exhibitors and participants. Thanks to its excellent location between the railway station, airport and motorway, the trade fair and congress centre takes the stress out of travelling to and from your event.


You can get to Messe Erfurt by car from all sides of the country.
Detailed information is available here.

International arrivals: The direct connection to Erfurt-Weimar airport (just one change from city railway line 4 to line 2 at the Gothaer Platz stop is necessary) makes the journey easier for international visitors.

In addition, when travelling on ICE trains, Leipzig/Halle Airport can be reached in about 30 minutes and Frankfurt Airport in about 130 minutes.
