About the City
Berlin, the united capital of Germany, is an urban oasis with its green and spacious environments. The city is renowned for its unique historical background, two city centers, and an impressive array of bridges.
Among other achievements, the Berlin Convention Office of visitBerlin has served as the city’s official convention bureau since 2001.
Although the pre-pandemic 2019 figures boasted 67,000 events and over 9 million participants, the city is now on its way back including hybrid and digital meetings, adapting to the needs of clients. This commitment to innovation manifests itself in collaborations between event organizers, local businesses, and policymakers, and contributes to Berlin’s prestigious status in the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) world rankings. Berlin captivates visitors and delegates by offering a fascinating mix of history, art, and cutting-edge technology. The city has proudly carried the UNESCO “City of Design” title since 2005 and it spearheaded Germany’s presence in the global network of creative cities, championed by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation.
Berlin is a leading European science center with a network of collaborative universities, research institutions, and technology parks that fuel progress in biotechnologies and medical sciences. These efforts have placed the city center stage in driving global innovation and expertise.
Berlin is home to several major event venues, such as CityCube Berlin, which caters to world-class events and large-scale gatherings. The city offers several unique locations for hosting events, like the majestic 368-meter high Television Tower, meetings in repurposed swimming pools, and Germany’s grandest hotel, the Estrel, with over 25,000 square meters of multifunctional event space.
