Bonn, Leipzig + Berlin Invest Big in New & Expanded Venues to Welcome Large Delegate Groups
Right now, or by the end of this year, planners have four new meeting venue choices in the cities of Bonn, Leipzig and Berlin –especially for larger delegate counts.
The World Conference Center Bonn (WorldCCBonn) has invested over $100M / €100M to create a new main Building unveiled this past June. Together with the existing Waterworks and Plenary Building, this new space can accommodate up to 5,000 delegates, and there are also four modular conference rooms with separate foyers to mix and match. This new contemporary Building combines seamlessly with neighboring historic buildings, surrounding lawns, views of the Rhine river, and state of the art technology to deliver the whole package.
In Leipzig, working on the wild side is easy within the newly renovated KONGRESSHALLE, situated directly next to the Leipzig Zoo -- known as one of the world’s most advanced zoos for its scientific excellence and 850-strong animal species and subspecies community. After investing $37M+ USD€37 M in reconstruction and restoration, the 19th century KONGRESSHALLE building has been reborn, providing a historic yet state of the art meeting location in the heart of the city. The venue features a variety of design styles from contemporary and historic … to art nouveau and art deco, and it includes 15 well equipped rooms and halls that holdsst 10 – 1,200 people. It will host the International Congress of Zookeepers this month.
If Berlin is more your style, look to the popular Estrel Berlin which just added a new hall. Convention Hall II, which commanded a more than a $30M / €30M investment, is located right next to the existing Berlin Congress and Messe Center and can accommodate up to 5,200 people. Together with Hall I, which has 60 conference rooms of all sizes, the Estrel Berlin now offers over 25K sqm of space for galas, shows, concerts and conventions with capacities for up to 12,000 participants. The Estrel Berlin also features the Estrel Hotel with 1,125 rooms and the Estrel Festival Center theatre.
Finally, the new TITANIC Business Hotel Berlin, centrally located on the culturally-charged Chausseestrasse, will offer nearly 27K ft / 2,500 sqm of meeting and event space with a 19K+ ft / 1,800 sqm ballroom, 15 conference rooms and 389 guest rooms (including 14 suites). This property is the third venture by Turkish-German TITANIC Group in Berlin and ; it and will feature an authentic Turkish hammam (bath) and an indoor swimming pool.
