Greeting from Edgar Hirt

Senior Vice President Congressses and Events and Member of the Board

Situated in the heart of Hamburg, surrounded by lush vegetation – time and again our guests are enthusiastic about the privileged location of the CCH in Hamburg.

The attractive city center with its countless shopping opportunities is just a few hundred meters away. Connections for travellers are excellent: The “Dammtor” mainline train station, voted Germany’s most beautiful station, is right next door. Add the fascination of the maritime hub of Hamburg, one of Germany’s greenest and most water-rich cities, famous for its Reeperbahn, Hamburg Harbor and the HafenCity district.

It is not only the combination of an exceptional location in the midst of a famously open-minded metropolis with state-of-the-art infrastructure that makes the CCH so popular among our customers. The CCH - Congress Center Hamburg is one of Europe’s leading convention centers. Beginning in January 2017, it will undergo a comprehensive modernization and remodeling campaign.

With 12,000 sqm of exhibition space, 12,000 sqm of foyer space and 12,000 seats in up to 50 halls, the new CCH will be in perfect shape for the varying requirements of today's conventions and events when it reopens in 2019. The future CCH will be able to accommodate several concurrent events practically without limitations.

My message to you is simple: “See you in Hamburg!”

Sincerely, Edgar Hirt
