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.

Hamburg Messe und Congress to work short time from 1 May until 31 August

Trade fairs, conventions and events of all kinds are our passion. We love bringing people together wherever we see an opportunity to do so. We want each one of these opportunities to be a memorable experience for everyone. Seeing our halls full of people and colourful, varied and attractive exhibition booths, and hosting world-class conferences attended by top-ranking experts makes us happy. Our hearts burn for what we do. Yet, we are forced to take a break. We must postpone or cancel events we have carefully planned over a long period of time. But we fully understand this is not a time to be impatient. Since many activities cannot take place at this time, we are reducing our office hours for the time being while continuing to work, with unwavering enthusiasm, on the preparation of future events. And we are happy to communicate with you!

For the time being, the best time to reach us is Tuesdays to Thursdays.

E-Mails sent to us on Mondays or Fridays may be processed with a slight delay.

For urgent matters please use our phone number +49 40 3569-0.

Yours kindly, Hamburg Messe und Congress

Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) Update

Status: 03 June 2020

The 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. These guidelines prohibit any large events until 31 August 2020. This means that no Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH events will be taking place over the coming months.

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.
