Hamburg – a meeting place for the world

Few other destinations have so much to offer: bars floating on the water, nature-themed backdrops at the aquarium, historical dockland warehouses, industrial architecture and ships of all sizes.

We can provide free and independent advice and information based on your individual requirements. Whether you wish to organise a congress, a smaller event or a quirky incentive tour – you can count on us.

Traditionally, good trade relationships have given a considerable boost to the economy of this city on the Elbe river, helping to make Hamburg more popular than ever as a meeting destination. Hotel capacity has doubled over recent years to more than 45,000 rooms, and more than 70,000 events – from medical conferences to gala dinners – are held here every year. Hamburg is therefore the first port of call for spectacular events, conferences and incentive travel.

In addition to its captivating city centre, Hamburg is renowned for its centrally located hotels, venues, the exhibition and congress centres, excellent tourism infrastructure and outstanding amenities. In recent years, a great deal of investment has been made to make the city even more appealing to visitors. The city also offers many years of experience in the events sector and exemplary collaboration between all service partners. This close alliance not only represents true Hanseatic spirit, but also Hamburg's ability to continue meeting the needs of its customers as a destination.
