A message by Heike Mahmoud, CMP
Chief Operating Officer CCH – Congress Center Hamburg

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg has evolved into an attractive, multifaceted location for conventions and conferences, and the CCH - Congress Center Hamburg, with a success story spanning more than 40 years, has made a significant contribution to this development.

Since January 2017, the CCH has been undergoing comprehensive remodeling and modernization. Upgraded to the most advanced standards, and offering a wealth of flexible options, the new CCH will be an ideal venue for the varying requirements of today's conventions and events when it reopens in 2020. For our customers this means that:

  • 12,000 square meters of exhibition space,
  • 12,000 square meters of foyer space – Hamburg’s biggest venue for special events –,
  • 12,000 seats in up to 50 halls and rooms,
  • a CCH team with many years of convention know-how and solid expertise across a wide range of modern event formats, and
  • new services and an all-new CCH catering concept

will all be at their disposal. The future CCH will be able to accommodate several concurrent events practically without limitations.

Situated in the immediate vicinity of the city center, yet surrounded by lush vegetation – time and again our guests are enthusiastic about the privileged location of the CCH – Congress Center Hamburg. The local infrastructure available to our customers is exceptional: The CCH is located next to the Dammtor mainline train station and various public transit stations as well as numerous hotels, and Hamburg’s popular city center surrounding the Alster lakes are just a few hundred meters away.

With its economic power, a brilliant scientific community, with its impressive cityscape including the new HafenCity district, the Elbphilharmonie complex and the iconic Alster lakes, and with its rich cultural life, Hamburg is well known as a highly attractive city for events of all kinds.

Welcome to the new CCH, one of Europe’s leading convention centers!

Yours sincerely,

Heike Mahmoud
