In the global environment within which our Members operate, travel plays an important role as people gather for congresses and events. Although the risk to the general public is low in relation to the recent Coronavirus spread, the AIPCO Board and Council trust that our members and partners continue to take advice from their respective healthcare and government authorities when travelling and delivering projects for the clients.

Many people are convinced that Hamburg is Germany’s most beautiful city. Every year the vibrant metropolis on the Elbe and Alster rivers attracts more tourists and business travelers from Germany and abroad. After all, Hamburg is a trade show and convention city that has plenty to offer, from world-famous musical performances and the iconic Elbphilharmonie building to the Speicherstadt UNESCO World Heritage site. What is more, a multitude of leisure activities are available once an event has closed its doors, be it exquisite restaurants, luxury shopping or the world-famous Reeperbahn. 

Next year will see this incredible city transform even further with the unveiling of the new CCH – the Congress Centre Hamburg. The CCH has been undergoing comprehensive modernization and remodeling since January 2017. With a total available exhibition space of 12,000 m2, another 12,000 m2 of foyer space, and 12,000 seats in up to 50 halls and rooms, the congress center will be offering you nearly unlimited options for your events as of August 2020. International specialist conventions with thousands of attendees? Workgroup meetings in break-out rooms? Company events featuring star guests on a grand stage? The new CCH can (nearly) do it all! 

In terms of size and flexibility, the new CCH will set new standards throughout Europe. All spaces can be configured to suit your specific requirements and preferences. Rooms can be made smaller or larger, be subdivided or expanded. The vertical and horizontal zonal layout, providing three individual event sections called CCH West, CCH Center, and CCH East, and extending across four levels, allows several events to take place simultaneously and independently. 

Situated in the heart of the city, the CCH – Congress Center Hamburg will be as attractive as it has always been – a true world-class convention center. No matter what means of transportation you choose, the CCH is easy to find and can be reached quickly. And it is surrounded by numerous hotels.  

At CPI, we are delighted to be working closely with Hamburg and are opening our newest CPI office in this great city. We look forward to strengthening our ties with Hamburg in the years to come.  

“We warmly welcome Nicola McGrane and her team from CPI to Hamburg”, says Heike Mahmoud, Chief Operating Officer CCH – Congress Center Hamburg. “CPI is an excellent PCO, an active member of IAPCO and a wonderful addition to our partner network in Hamburg.”
