GCB German Convention Bureau - Meetings made in Germany

Germany is the number one conference and congress destination in Europe and comes second worldwide behind the USA. To secure this position and improve on it, is among the GCB’s core tasks. Conferences, congresses and events are platforms for exchanging experiences and ideas. They promote innovation and know-how transfer and contribute to international understanding which is a key concern for the GCB. It is our aim to further the exchange of experiences and ideas as well as promote conferences and congresses with the forum that we provide for the industry.

GCB German Convention Bureau

The role of the GCB German Convention Bureau e.V. is to secure and further develop Germany's position as a leading and sustainable location for meetings and events. The organisation is perfectly placed to help anyone organising an event in Germany: the GCB represents German event organisers and markets Germany nationally and internationally as a location for meetings, incentives, congresses and events. The strategic partners are Germany's national railway company Deutsche Bahn AG, the national largest airline Deutsche Lufthansa AG and the German National Tourism Board (GNTB).


Apart from providing all the basic facts and contacts needed for planning events, such as information about infrastructure, congress centres, hotels, agencies and other service providers across Germany, the GCB is also very happy to provide advice on a variety of relevant industry topics and strive to support your projects as comprehensively as possible. More information can be find here.

Our services

Tying in your meetings and conferences with the business know-how and scientific expertise that exists in the chosen location enables organisers to create synergies with local partners. Your delegates will get valuable insights and added benefits from your event if you, for example, provide opportunities to network with local experts or organise site visits.
If you are looking for a destination that fits in with what your conference is about, we can provide you with comprehensive information about regional industry clusters. With our network of members and partners we can put you in touch with companies, institutions and research facilities and make sure that you find the right meeting environment for your sector and aims.

Green meetings

The GCB is committed to sustainability: It is our aim to change attitudes in the meetings industry and continue our work in this field. We are therefore not only a professional and experienced partner for all questions regarding sustainability but have also been organising training seminars since 2012 that qualify participants as sustainability advisors for the meetings industry.

Meetings and conventions of the future

How do major trends such as globalisation and technology influence the meetings industry? What are the challenges that need to be met? Which meeting formats are future-proof and what kind of new challenges do they create? These are some of the questions that the GCB explores and together with research partners, it is our aim to systematically anticipate relevant developments within the meetings sector in order to establish future challenges for organisational, technological and regional infrastructures. To that end, we have set up the “Future Meeting Space“ innovation network to design the meeting space of the future. Find out more about "Future Meeing Space".
