New Location of Meet Magento Germany  

This year Meet Magento Germany has changed its location. This time it will take place in the new and stylish pentahotel in Leipzig. It really differs from the previous venues. The hotel is called “lifestyle hotel”. But, is that really so? 


In our view - yes! The hotel locates in the city centre near the Gewandhaus concert hall, the opera house, a variety of museums and galleries. All 356 rooms have a modern and contemporary design. They are fully equipped, so your stay in the hotel will be very comfortable. The unique feature is that the rooms have spacious marble bathrooms with a rain shower, which is specially designed for pentahotels. 

Moreover, as we are talking about the conference, it should be mentioned that in the pentahotel there are all necessary areas for conducting such kind of events including different meetings, workshops and exhibitions. Additionally, the hotel offers 700 underground parking spaces. It is important because some participants are coming by own or rented cars and need the place to park them. Also, there are special areas for relaxing, for example, large pool, fitness and sauna areas. So, people have the opportunity to take a rest after the conference brainstorming.

Meet Magento has changed their corporate design. Now, they have new logos for all international MM events as well as for the Meet Magento Association. You can find them on Twitter, Facebook profile and on their website!
