Local Lounge Frankfurt a.M.

As the “smallest metropolis in the world”, Frankfurt am Main occupies a special position among German cities. No other city has such a high concentration of financial services. In addition, the German financial metropolis is home to the most important stock exchange on the European mainland, hosts one of the most important trade fairs in Europe and also has the largest Internet node in the world.

In an exclusive ambience, our lounge offers interdisciplinary business topics for top decision-makers who want to exchange ideas at eye level, cultivate relationships and make new contacts. We set impulses, inspire and network.
