Düsseldorf, Germany (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
For years, DUS has been surprising travelers and visitors on the first Sunday of each month by creating huge events and stunning views at the airport terminal that are unexpected in format and originality. Highlights of the event series called “DUS Event Sundays” are featured in a new video called “Best of Event Sonntage” (Best of Event Sundays), available on YouTube and the airport’s Website http://www.dus.com.
The video shows the astounding variety of events that have taken place inside the terminal building, many of the celebrities who have participated, and illustrates what is possible in an unusual venue. All events were designed to enhance the airport experience for travelers and visitors and feature entertainment, education, special deals, or elements of all three. All events in the series are free of charge, and at most events, visitors are invited to participate.
Events and set ups include: A real ski jump with real snow and British Olympic ski jumper Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards; dance festival “Dance Terminal, Dance” (TanzTerminal, tanz!), featuring dancers and celebrities from Germany’s version of American TV hit-show “Dancing with the Stars,” called “Let’s Dance;” florist championship; airport games, a prelude to summer Olympics and soccer championships; and “FashionAirport,” with runways, fashion models and German fashion designer Harald Glööckler, and much more.
The monthly free event series continues at DUS.

In League with New York, London, Paris and More
Adding to Düsseldorf’s appeal, several US & Canadian cities (Atlanta, Chicago, Ft. Myers, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Newark, Toronto) offer non-stop flights. Passengers who continue their journeys can choose from numerous convenient connections to Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt, Hamburg and many other German and European cities. Throughout the year, 60 airlines serve 180 destinations worldwide – among them 125 European destinations. Another major advantage of the airport is its layout. With all gates in one terminal building, Düsseldorf Airport is the “airport of short distances” – guaranteeing minimum connection times of 35 minutes.
The airport is at the center of the Rhine Ruhr area, a bustling network of 53 connected cities and 18 million residents within 40 miles. It is the EU’s third largest market in volume and spending and equal to major metropolitan regions like New York, London and Paris. 500,000 companies are located in the area, including 5,000 offices of foreign corporations, the majority from the Netherlands, Japan and the USA. Many major international industry players, including Fujifilm Europe, Nokia Siemens, Novell, Ericsson, Deloitte & Touche, McKinsey, and Toshiba, are headquartered in Düsseldorf, which is a first-rate location for high-tech concerns. International presence and fast accessibility – guaranteed by DUS being one of Germany’s major hubs – make the location highly attractive.
Düsseldorf and North Rhine-Westphalia, ranked 17 in GDP among the world’s major industrial centers, are also home to some of the most significant exhibitions and trade shows in the world. Of the 50 annual events at Düsseldorf’s Exhibition Center, 23 lead their industry worldwide, for example, printing technology (“drupa”), plastics and rubber (“K”), medicine (“MEDICA” and “REHACARE INTERNATIONAL”), leisure time (“boot”) or packaging (“interpack”).
