Following comprehensive remodelling and modernization, which
began in 2017, the Congress Center Hamburg (CCH) is reopen for business.
“By officially opening our convention center, we are back on
the national and international market. The new CCH – Congress Center Hamburg is
modern, flexible, attractive and ready to host major national and international
events. We are looking forward to numerous future-looking conventions and other
events taking place here," said CCH COO, Heike Mahmoud.
CCH is now one of Europe’s largest convention centres with
36,000 sqm of available space, including 50 multifunctional halls for
conventions and events spread across four levels and a 3-000 seat hall.
A focus on attracting medical conventions, scientific congresses
and association conferences, as well as corporate events remains integral to CCH.
In 2022, the venue will host The 20th International Symposium on Pediatric
Neuro-Oncology, the 74th Annual Convention of the German Urologists Association and
the ISC High Performance 2022 conference and exhibition.
CCH partially opened late last year to welcome the ITS World
Congress on 11 October, 2021. The kick-off event in Hall 1 marked the
first official gathering at the partly opened convention centre since 2017.
“The new CCH provides Hamburg with a state-of-the-art
convention centre with enormous potential, situated at an attractive location
right in the middle of the city. It offers ideal conditions for hosting
international conventions and other events exploring the key topics of the
future,” said the First Mayor of Hamburg, Dr. Peter Tschentscher, who
officially opened the venue.
The new CCH comes as
a boost for Hamburg’s tourism and hospitality sector, highlighting our city’s
pivotal role as an international business and science hub.”
Bernd Aufderheide, president and CEO of Hamburg Messe und
Congress GmbH, which operates CCH, added: “With its superb functionality, the
new CCH will set new standards and is sure to meet the expectations of today's
convention organisers in every respect.
“By being able to rely on decades of expertise in the
convention business, we will be able to continue the success story of the CCH and
win many fascinating event organizers for our beautiful city."
