CGN-Convention since 2023 located at Butzweilerhof Cologne (Motorworld Köln)

1st to 17th MGL-Convention 2014-2022 located at Mönchengladbach Airport (MGL)

 

1. CGN-Convention 04.03.2023 (was supposed to be 18. MGL-Convention):

 

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!

17. MGL-Convention 29.10.2022:

 

Hallo an alle Freunde der MGL-Convention!

Im nächsten Monat findet die 17. MGL-Convention statt. Wir freuen uns auf Euren Besuch am 29.10.2022 zwischen 10 und 16 Uhr am Flughafen Mönchengladbach!

Angekündigt hatten wir, dass die Veranstaltung in einer neuen Location (Hugo Junkers Hangar) stattfinden wird. Da der Flughafen uns aber das Bistro doch noch einmal zur Verfügung stellen kann, haben wir uns entschlossen, die 17. MGL-Convention doch noch einmal in der altbekannten "familiären" Umgebung stattfinden zu lassen. Aufgrund der geplanten Umbauarbeiten am Flughafen wird es dann ab 2023 trotzdem eine neue Location geben!

Wir hoffen, dass die Ju 52 am Convention-Tag auf dem Vorfeld oder im Hangar steht und wie geplant gegen eine kleine Gebühr besichtigt werden kann.
Dieser Part wird vom Verein der Freunde historischer Luftfahrzeuge e.V. übernommen und ist vom Wetter abhängig!

Wir hoffen außerdem auf eine weiterhin entspannte Corona-Lage und gutes Wetter, damit die Veranstaltung wieder in entspannter Atmosphäre stattfinden kann.

Eintritt bleibt weiterhin frei. Die Tischgebühr wird nicht erhöht!

Wer noch einen oder mehrere Tische reservieren möchte, kann uns dies gerne per Mail an info@mgl-convention.de mitteilen.

Viele Grüße und bis Oktober

MGL-Convention Team

===============================================================================================

Hello to all friends of the MGL Convention!
 
Next month the 17th MGL Convention will take place. We are looking forward to your visit on 29.10.2022 between 10 am and 4 pm at Mönchengladbach Airport!
 
We had announced that the event would take place in a new location (Hugo Junkers Hangar). However, as the airport is able to make the Bistro available to us once again, we have decided to hold the 17th MGL Convention in the old familiar surroundings after all. Due to the planned reconstruction work at the airport, there will nevertheless be a new location from 2023!
 
We hope that the Ju 52 will be on the apron or in the hangar on the day of the convention and can be viewed as planned for a small fee.
This part will be taken over by the Verein der Freunde historischer Luftfahrzeuge e.V. and depends on the weather!
 
We also hope that the Corona situation will remain relaxed and that the weather will be good so that the event can once again take place in a relaxed atmosphere.
Admission will remain free. The table fee will not be increased!
 
Anyone who would still like to reserve one or more tables is welcome to let us know by sending an email to info@mgl-convention.de.
 
Best regards and see you in October
 
MGL-Convention Team

15. MGL-Convention 23.10.2021:

  

We dare a new beginning in MGL on 23rd of October 2021! At the usual location, but with a new partner! Sebastian Steinbach from Flugwerk24 is now part of the MGL team!

Unfortunately, Bistro Winkens will be closed for good, but we still hope for a familiar, relaxed and also delicious atmosphere in the terminal of MGL Airport.

And despite the Corona, we hope for lots of exhibitors and visitors :-) Registrations/inquiries from exhibitors are now possible via the - partly new - contact channels mentioned in the flyer. The usual "circular mail" to existing MGL exhibitors will follow in the next few days!

"For collectors by collectors" - under the still valid motto we hope for a successful new start!

Markus Kircher, Sebastian Steinbach, Peter Vosen and Ralf Wittekopf

 

  

14. MGL-Convention (17.10.20) - cancelled:

 

Due to the current and foreseeable development of the Corona measures, we unfortunately have to cancel the 14th MGL Convention.

Not being able to hold the 13th (and 14th) convention in the "darned" 7th year - one could become superstitious ;-)

All the more we are looking forward to the 15th MGL Convention in 2021! Let's hope that the situation will have eased sufficiently by then ...

 

 

13. MGL-Convention (28.03.20) - cancelled:

 

Due to the current and foreseeable development of the Corona measures, we unfortunately do not see ourselves in a position to organise a replacement date for the 13th MGL Convention, which was cancelled in March.

Not being able to hold the 13th convention in the "darned" 7th year - one could become superstitious ;-)

All the more we are looking forward to the already announced 14th MGL Convention on 17.10.2020! Let's hope that the situation will have eased sufficiently by then ...

Happy Collecting

MGL Convention Wings & More – Premiere in Mönchengladbach (www.modellflughafen.blogspot.de)

 

"Die Börse war echt super hat mir viel Spaß gemacht und ich fand es sehr familiär

... Also alles top 

... für die erste Börse war das großes Kino und die Verpflegung war tip top . Weiter so"

"Hi zusammen, ich fand die Börse heute sehr gut und macht Lust auf mehr ... 

Tolle Auswahl und viele bekannte Gesicherter gesehen ... 

für mich ein würdiger Nachfolger für die DUS-Wings-Börse. 

Jeder der nicht da war, sollte sich im November ein Bild von der Börse machen. Es lohnt sich."

 

"I have had a nice fair and experienced in the same atmosphere as the Dü Convention. 

A big "thank you" to the organization of this convention!"
