Cultural events enrich life in even the smallest community. For a larger city to be without a suitable venue for big events to take place means there is a big hole in that city’s attractiveness to its residents – and an opportunity to be taken for an entrepreneurially-minded organization. That was the thinking of the Feneberg family when they decided to fund and build a modern event venue in their home town of Kempten in the picturesque Allgäu region of Bavaria. Built for a total cost of 20 million EUR and offering 4,500 m² of space, bigBOX Allgäu opened in 2003. It is operated by FH Promotions GmbH & Co. KG.
