Shutdown until 17 April

As many other companies, Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH cannot avoid being affected by the spread of coronavirus. To slow down the pandemic, protect the health of our staff as much as possible, and make the best possible use of the period during which we are unfortunately unable to host any events, we have decided to shut down all operations from 6 until and including 17 April. We will be back to serve you from Monday 20 April. Thank you very much for understanding. And please, stay healthy!

Sincerely yours, Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH


Convention center in the heart of Hamburg

In August 2020 it will finally be time for the modernized CCH - Congress Center Hamburg to reopen for you to experience endless new opportunities on 36,000 square meters of space. Future events will be able to utilize entirely new dimensions at the redesigned convention center. The new CCH combines a successful 40-year history with an innovative architectural concept that caters to tomorrow’s demands. Situated in the heart of the dynamic metropolis of Hamburg, this convention center plays in the international top league. With 12,000 square meters of exhibition space, 12,000 square meters of foyer space and 12,000 seats in up to 50 halls, the CCH will be one of the largest, most advanced convention centers in Europe.

The planners of the new CCH - Congress Center Hamburg placed great emphasis on sustainability, applying recognized principles such as those of the German Society for Sustainable Construction (DGNB). The CCH aims to obtain DGNB 'Gold' certification. Furthermore, it meets the international standards for a barrier-free convention center.

Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) Update

The accelerating spread of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has far-reaching consequences for Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH as for other businesses. A number of trade fairs and congresses had to be postponed or cancelled after the Federal Government and the heads of the German states agreed common guidelines in March to further limit social interaction in public life so as to slow the spread of the virus. As per today these guidelines will remain in effect until the middle of April 2020. However, in view of the current situation it appears very likely that these limitations will be extended beyond that time. As a consequence no Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH events will be taking place in the next weeks.

The health of visitors, exhibitors and all other trade fair or congress attendees is our top priority. We will continue watching the development closely and take appropriate action as deemed necessary to protect our customers, partners and employees.

However, at the same time we are quite busy working on the preparations for future events in summer and fall which we want to implement together with you at the Hamburg exhibition complex and the new CCH – Congress Center Hamburg. Please make sure you stay healthy!
