Region of Bonn – the sustainable conference destination
Full of life, cosmopolitan and right on the banks of the Rhine. As a conference destination, Bonn provides a platform for dialogue on sustainability issues with a unique blend of internationality, personality and Rhineland culture.
Bonn is at the heart of a structurally strong region amidst some of the most beautiful countryside between the Rhine and Siebengebirge hills. Within a few years, it has become one of the leading platforms for dialogue on sustainable development, commerce and science. Germany's UN city offers a mix of leading venues, cultural highlights and strong professional networks in a relatively small area – the ideal environment for successful events. The Bonn region enjoys a central location in Europe and the three nearest airports can all be reached within an hour. In addition, Bonn is easily accessible on the motorway and InterCityExpress rail network. The city also has superb public transport services. Bonn offers a large selection of conference venues and conference hotels for five to 5,000 participants. The former plenary chamber of the German parliament and the neighbouring waterworks are the key components of the World Conference Center Bonn. Over the years, the Maritim Hotel Bonn has hosted a number of major UN conferences. The many attractions in the city and region, including the house where Ludwig van Beethoven was born and the 'museum mile', offer event organisers a wide choice of cultural experiences for their guests as well as some intriguing conference facilities. Your main contact for events is Tourismus & Congress GmbH Region Bonn/Rhein-Sieg/Ahrweiler.
Bonn: Taking energy to a sustainable future.
The former Germany capital, Bonn is now a global centre in the area of energy + the environment and one of the leading German venues for conventions and conferences. This is in part due to the many international secretariats based here that deal with nature and the environment; the UN Campus is also located in Bonn. One of the outstanding events to focus on climate change and the environment was the UN Conference on Biodiversity 2008.
