German capital has obtained a modern venue for fairs, congresses and meetings.
CityCube Berlin is the new trade fair and convention centre for Berlin.
“The CityCube is state of the art and therefore more than just a replacement for the ICC. It was also completed in record time,” says Burkhard Kieker, CEO of visitBerlin. “The CityCube is an important argument for Berlin in a tough, competitive market for international conventions and meetings. Also, we would like to announce that visitBerlin and Messe Berlin have commissioned a market study to determine the convention capacity Berlin will need by 2020 and beyond.”
The national meeting of the German Trade Union Confederation (DGB) on 11 May will be the first event in CityCube Berlin. Major medical congresses such as the 34th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Breast Diseases will follow this summer. As part of the "MEXCON – Meeting Experts Conference", the Meeting Experts Award will be awarded on 11 June. From 11 – 13 June, the MEXCON in Berlin is the gathering of the leading representatives of the German meetings and convention industry.
The cornerstone for the CityCube Berlin was laid in July 2012. The cube-shaped building with a textile façade offers space for up to 11,000 participants over three storeys. A glass-covered walkway connects the multi-function hall with Hall 7 of the Berliner Messe, creating enough space for up to 18,000 participants.
