Congress location Düsseldorf well positioned — now and in the future

The CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf is getting a facelift. The occasion: the expansion of the convention centre and new building of Hall 1. In addition to the reconstruction, a futuristic-looking redesign of the entrance CCD Süd including a forecourt, and construction of an underground carpark are planned. The design was created by the Düsseldorf architecture firm SOP.

“With the reconstruction and the increased capacity, the CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf is equipping itself even better for large conferences and corporate events. The highly modern building and the location on the Rhine and the Nordpark, increase the quality of event participants’ stay,” states Hilmar Guckert, spokesman of the Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event management board.

One characteristic feature of the construction project is a 20-metre high, 7,800 square-metre projecting roof of translucent fibreglass cloth with LED lighting that covers the entrance CCD Süd, the forecourt, and the new subjacent underground carpark. The existing exhibition halls 1 and 2 will be replaced by a new 12,000 square-metre column-free hall. The 2,100 square-metre foyer will also be usable as exhibition space.

The first floor houses six conference rooms, which are on the same level as and connected with the event floor of the CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf via a glass passageway. Each of the conference rooms has a 200 square-metre footprint and can be divided into two rooms of equal size with mobile partitions.

In addition to the projected roof, further modifications are planned for the forecourt to the main entrance. Two passageways to the Nordpark will be constructed, for example, so that exhibition and conference participants can treat themselves to a brief regenerative break in nature.

International accessibility, efficient hotel scene, diverse venues
Düsseldorf is modern and international, tradition-conscious and open-minded. The 630,000 inhabitants come from 180 countries, and more than 5,000 branch offices and subsidiaries of foreign firms are located in the greater Düsseldorf area. One reason for this is the excellent, continuously developing infrastructure. With more than 22 million passengers, Düsseldorf Airport (DUS) is the third largest airport in Germany. It connects the metropolis on the Rhine with 203 destinations around the globe, including Singapore, Hong Kong, Peking, Tokyo, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi, as well as eight US destinations.

Another reason is Düsseldorf’s attractive hotel scene. Numerous high-star hotels, such as Meliá, Sheraton and Hyatt, as well as the Breidenbacher Hof, a Capella Hotel, are located in the North Rhine-Westphalian state capital. Several new openings in upcoming years will expand the portfolio.

The new cooperation, Hotels 4 Convention, paves the way for increased planning security: event planners can reserve a contingent of up to 3,000 rooms far in advance of their event.

Düsseldorf offers venues for events of every type and every size. Next to the classic conference centre, there are modern multipurpose halls and arenas, special event locations, and, with HORISUM, one of the world’s largest event centres with space for several tens of thousands of visitors.

Highly qualified staff with years of experience
Düsseldorf Congress Sport & Event offers wide-ranging expertise in the organisation and realisation of events.
