Conferences in Cologne
Best equipment and Rhenish ease
While carnival and Kölsch beer may represent the cathedral city’s attitude to life, Cologne also plays in the top league of business and conference centres.
While the cosmopolitan, cordial, and firmly grounded manner of the people in Cologne characterise the feel of life in the cathedral city, Cologne also plays in the top league of business and conference centres. The city is one of Germany’s leading conference locations.
Cologne offers best opportunities for its conference guests with more than 210 event locations, ranging from classical to extraordinary, and 280 hotels from modern conference hotels to small and sophisticated design ones. The state-of-the-art Congress-Centrum Koelnmesse scores with an ICE connection in the inner city while construction of the new multi-functional Confex® conference location offering a conference capacity for up to 6,200 participants is underway at full power. The city’s diverse cultural and gastronomy offerings ensure a perfect setting for business events of all kinds.
As a business site, Cologne is also characterised by its great industry mix and balanced company size structure. Cologne is where industry giants, numerous family-owned medium-sized industrial companies that include a great number of hidden champions, and many start-ups meet. Beyond this, Cologne is a city with a strong knowledge base and broadly positioned science landscape that is open to innovation and transformation.
Cologne is easily accessible from around the world not least due to its airport. Many local and long-distance trains as well as a number of motorways also quickly deliver guests to their destinations.
