Germany - at the heart of future events

The summer campaign of the GCB German Convention Bureau e.V.
A wide-ranging, hybrid program from June to September 2021.

Summer comes alive! Experience a unique hybrid program under the motto "Germany - at the heart of future events", let yourself be inspired by the GCB campaign, and experience new impulses for your future event planning. All activities are of course free of charge and obligation!

After the campaign kick-off at the beginning of June, the first two weeks of June will be dedicated to "Destinations in Motion": Our "Roaming Reporter" will take you on a digital journey across Germany and report live on social media from as many as 12 destinations. Get to know your favorite places anew or discover new and exciting highlights!

"Discover" is also the keyword for the digital exhibition that will be open for you in the GCB Virtual Venue from June to September. Whether marketing organizations, convention bureaus, hotels or venues: Here you will find everything that Germany has to offer as a meeting and congress destination - including appointments and direct chats with exhibitors.

Dates for your calendar are our Education Weeks in the second half of June: A wide range of online lectures and discussion rounds in the GCB Virtual Venue will focus on the topics of innovation and sustainability. After all, innovation is also at the heart of the new Response Room platform - in the course of our summer campaign, this is the place to get actively involved with your ideas and discover new topics for the future all the time.
