With over 640,000 inhabitants, the State Capital Düsseldorf is the second largest city and one of the major industrial locations in North-Rhine Westphalia. Around 5,000 international companies have found their ideal business location and conditions here. A broad-based service sector benefits from the proximity to customers in the city and the entire region. Industry and production are also firmly anchored in Düsseldorf. At the same time, a large number of innovative and technology-driven service providers provide an important stimulus to the various business sectors.
The role of the Office of Economic Development is to continually develop Düsseldorf as a business location and create the best conditions and locational environment for companies. This particularly applies to the areas of innovation, digital transformation and talent promotion.
The Office of Economic Development also acts as a service partner to national and international companies, offering advice when they have to deal with residence permit issues or approval procedures, or when they are looking for the right real estate or relocating a business within the city area.
The real estate sector plays a central role in Düsseldorf as a continually developing and transforming business location. Real estate trade fairs such as Expo Real are important opportunities to meet the players in the real estate sector, which is so important for Düsseldorf, and provides an opportunity to discuss change and shape the city’s future.
