Town Marketing Award 2018

The Historische Stadthalle has won a prize at the Wuppertal Economic Awards in the category “Town Marketing Award 2018”. The award is presented to companies, private individuals, associations and organisations who have helped to make Wuppertal better known in a positive way – who have contributed to improving the town’s image both inwardly and outwardly and raised its public profile.

The team of the Historische Stadthalle which feels a great sense of commitment to the site’s heritage, the town of Wuppertal and its residents, is particularly pleased about this award.




On 25 September, an expert jury made the decision to confer the 2014 Award for the “Historic Location & Industrial Culture Location” category on the Historische Stadthalle Wuppertal. In winning this accolade, the Historische Stadthalle beat strong contenders – the Zollverein UNESCO world heritage site in Essen and Fish auction halls in Altona, Hamburg.
This is the fifth year in which the locationportale GmbH has honoured outstanding event venues in Germany with an award.
The Location Award 2014 was given for eleven different categories. The award ceremony took place in the Warsteiner Welt brewery event venue in Warstein in Germany.
2014 saw the introduction of a new selection process with event organisers in companies, event agencies and associations, as well as event management professionals evaluating entries using a point system. This evaluation resulted in three nominees per category (out of a total of over 100 applicants). The jury then selected the winning entry out of these three.
The team at the Historische Stadthalle is very proud to have received this award.

EVVC Award 2010

The Historische Stadthalle among top three in 2010 EVVC Award nominations for the „Best in-house event organization“ category

The annual general meeting of the European Association of Event Centers (EVVC) in Düsseldorf on the 19 April 2010 was the occasion for the fourth annual presentation of the EVVC awards.

The Historische Stadthalle was nominated for the 2010 EVVC Award "Best in-house event organization" for the organization and realization of the 1st International Organ Competition which took place during the "Wuppertal Musiksommer".

The "Wuppertal Musiksommer" is planned as a multi-faceted annual summer cultural festival. Sustainable cultural education and development, as well as the support and encouragement of new talent are two of its focal aspects. The festival is an important element in the consolidation and integration of Wuppertal as a centre for culture and education. Furthermore, it underpins the town's reputation on the international music scene as a location for concerts and cultural sponsorship - with the Historische Stadthalle as its most important concert hall. The organ competition enhances the reputation of the hall's 67-stop Sauer concert organ among organists and fans of the instrument worldwide.

The spokesman for the jury, Professor Gerd Schwandler, commented: "The jury was impressed by the high quality of the 1st International Organ Competition and how the Historische Stadthalle used the theme of organ music in a competition for up-and-coming young musicians. The collaboration with the "Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln" and the support of the prize winners through further engagements also deserve a mention".

EVVC Award 2008


On 19 May the Historische Stadthalle, together with the Kongress Zentrum Rosenheim, was named the “2008 Best Center in the category 1,200 to 4,000 seats”. The award ceremony, followed by a festive gala, took place in the Messe Leipzig. The jury of the EVVC (European Association of Event Centers) chose the “Best of the Branch” from the results of a customer survey and requests for fictitious events. After all, who better than our events customers and partners can judge our performance? The EVVC Award – a prize we are proud of.

Bettina Meister-Lauria, Silke Asbeck, Holger Kruppe, Managing Director, and Mailin Weber (from left to right) received the prize on behalf of the whole team from Gundula Gause (far right).
