1 and 2 July in Stuttgart

Consense 2014: Innovative, cross-sector, sustainable

Under the motto "Meet the Leaders of Sustainability" Consense, the international trade fair and congress for sustainable building, investment, operations and maintenance, with congress, topic forums, trade fair and several special shows provides a first-class offering. The organisers are Messe Stuttgart and DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council). The leading industry meeting place will open its doors at Messe Stuttgart on 1 and 2 July 2014.
The congress offers the opportunity to exchange information and ideas with experts from all over the world and to expand specialist knowledge in plenary sessions, intensive workshops and seminars. On the first day investors and communities are to the fore, while the second day is all about planners and architects. To open the plenary session prominent speakers will answer questions posed by Dr. Günther Bachmann, General Secretary of the Council for Sustainable Development.
Well-known international architects were acquired for the plenary session on 2 July. One such architect is the award-winning Diébédo Francis Kéré, Berlin. He designed the "Operndorf" (Opera Village) for Christoph Schlingensief and mainly implements sustainable architecture projects in Africa. The French architect Jean-Philippe Vassal, founder of Lacaton et Vassal Architects, Paris, represents a radical understatement with optimal results. Another guest is Kjetil Trædal Thorsen, founding member of Snøhetta Arkitektur og Landskap, Oslo/ New York, which won the master plan for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum at Ground Zero in New York, among other things.
In the afternoon intensive workshops are provided at the congress. In each of the workshops lasting three hours there is the opportunity to deal with expert topics in detail and discuss issues from various angles. Parallel to this, the DGNB also organises a range of seminars on current developments and focal topics of the association. For more details on the programme please visit www.dgnb.de.
The topic forums are open to congress and trade fair visitors and take place right in the heart of the trade fair action - this training offering forms an important link between the congress and trade fair. Well-known partners from the building and property industry were acquired to help shape the content of these forums.  In addition to the topic forums, the "Practical Forum" also offers exhibitors the opportunity to present their innovations
There are also further attractions and special shows at the international trade fair.
