The VDH (German Kennel Club) is happy to stage the World Dog Show from 9-12 November 2017 at one of the largest and most modern exhibition sites in Europe – the Leipzig Trade Fair. Leipzig lies in the heart of Europe and offers outstanding transport services with an excellent motorway network. Leipzig-Halle airport is just a few kilometres from the exhibition grounds and its own local railway station provides a direct connection to the Leipzig main railway station.
More than 80,000 square metres of hall space along with 70,000 square metres of open space can easily accommodate the World Dog Show. All the halls are air-conditioned.
Leipzig has become well established as a host venue for dog shows over the decades and enjoys an excellent reputation among exhibitors.
As a city of culture, Leipzig is itself also a touristic highlight. Barely any other city boasts such a great tradition of music as Leipzig. Names such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy or Richard Wagner are inextricably associated with Leipzig. In the historical city centre the unique arcades and trading courts, the modern shops and the railway station mall at this major railway terminus are a real treat for those wanting to shop or those who enjoy a wander around.
The well experienced VDH organization-team will ensure the staging of an event worthy of the World Dog Show. Leipzig will be a festival for the dogs and we warmly invite you to join in the celebrations!
