The Elbphilharmonie celebrates the city’s close connection to the sea and is designed to look like a rolling wave in homage to Hamburg’s world-famous harbour.
Due to ‘set sail’ early next year, this innovative venue will provide a truly unique meeting venue for planners and delegates as well as a 4-Star Westin Hotel for fine dining, accommodation and meeting space. Visitors can explore the new venue for themselves and enjoy a glimpse inside the ‘Elphi’ via 3-D animated tours on HCB’s stand.
The team behind the CCH - Congress Center Hamburg will join HCB to share the scope of this revitalised venue. Via 3-D tours, visitors can step inside the CCH, which is set to become one of Europe's largest convention centres when it opens in 2019. With a 12,000 sqm exhibition area and 12,000 seats in up to 50 halls, it will also be the largest of its kind in Germany. The redesigned centre will be able to accommodate several concurrent events and the entrance hall, rising as tall as the main building, provides an additional multi-purpose space.
Offering breathtaking views of the city’s famous Alster Lake, the Fontenay hotel is a new 5-star hotel set to open at the start of 2017. Located in its own private park in the city, the hotel’s conference facilities are across four rooms equipped with the latest in audio and visual technology. Designed by Hamburg-born star architect Jan Störmer, the hotel has a modern and innovative sculptural design featuring 131 rooms and suites.
Florian Gerdes, Marketing Manager Conventions at Hamburg Convention Bureau, explains: “Hamburg has a great track record in hosting successful events and is increasingly on the hit list of meeting and event planners. It’s our first time at The Meetings Show and we’re looking forward to introducing our three show-stopper venues to visitors.”
Visitors can meet the HCB team at stand B605 at The Meetings Show, 14 – 16 June.
