18. MGL-/1.CGN-Convention Wings & More March 4th, 2023

..

Hello MGL-Convention friends!

The 18th MGL Convention was supposed to take place at Mönchengladbach Airport on March 4th, 2023.

Unfortunately, the conversion work at the previous venue (bistro) has already begun, but the construction work at the new planned venue (terminal) will not be completed by March.

Therefore we will not be able to hold the convention at MGL Airport as planned!

We were looking for a new, suitable location for future events and we found it with MOTORWORLD Köln Rheinland on the site of the historic airport at Butzweilerhof in Cologne! 

This means, the 18th MGL Convention will now become the 1st CGN-Convention. 

The Butzweilerhof is located in the northwest of Cologne, conveniently close to the A1 and A57 motorways (exit 28 at the Köln-Nord junction) and is easy to reach by public transport (U5) from Cologne main station.

In the Butzweilerhof, where the first daredevil flight attempts took place as early as 1910 and which was considered the “Air Crossroads of the West” in the 1930s, the new MOTORWORLD Köln Rheinland had been launched in June 2018.

Open all year round and accessible free of charge, the „Butz“ is a lively meeting place for car lovers on an area of around 50,000 square meters.

From oldtimers to youngtimers, rarities, modern luxury automobiles to bikes. At MOTORWORLD Köln Rheinland you will find unusual vehicles of all kinds. exclusive glass boxes for storing and presenting your automotive treasures, specialized workshops, high-quality accessories shops and a wide range of restaurants make this a world class venue for our convention.

We believe that we have found a sustainable solution with the Butzweilerhof.

With the historic airport building and the Fokker F-27 parked in front of it, a little „aviation flair“ is still provided!

We expect the Corona situation to be relaxed and that the weather will be good. So we are certain that the event can take place in a relaxed atmosphere again.

Unfortunately, the change of venue – which was also surprising for us – leads to a significant cost increase, eventually creating the need of a table rental increase (see below).

This is the first increase since the 1st MGL Convention in 2014! In addition, we will charge a small entrance fee in the future (see below). This also serves to cover cost.

We hope for your understanding of these measures!
 

Here is a summary of all the details for the next event:
