Dresden – a unique international congress destination

Dresden has everything to make its congress visitors feel well looked after in every way, including hotels and conference venues with the highest standards of quality, a compact size and high-level security.

Those looking for a very special venue for their meetings need look no further than Dresden. The city boasts a wide range of exceptional venues guaranteed to satisfy even the most discerning requirements. Opened in 2010, BÖRSE DRESDEN is the new conference centre at the exhibition centre in Dresden , which can accommodate up to 10,000 visitors and offers direct access to Dresden's city centre. The International Congress Centre is suitable for conventions and conferences and can hold around 4,000 delegates. The building is renowned for its striking modern architecture and fabulous location on the banks of the Elbe river close to the historical old quarter.

Professional partners are on hand to help with preparations for your conferences, conventions and incentive activities. PCOs, event agencies, conference interpreters, hostess services, conference and event technicians, and transport companies offer a great service. Attractive supporting programmes round off your congress by ensuring plenty of memorable moments. Discover the dramatic rocky landscape of the Elbe Sandstone Massif, explore the Dresden Elbe Valley with the world's oldest and largest fleet of paddle-steamers or be captivated by 'white gold' in the porcelain town of Meissen. Don't miss out on the opportunity to enjoy some true Saxon hospitality, dining in baroque courtyards or high above the Elbe river, or at one of the city's lively pubs and bars. Dresden is an extremely dynamic, major international centre of business and research. In Dresden, science and art, tradition and innovation are far from mutually exclusive – they go hand in hand.
