Berlin is one of the most fascinating and inspiring capitals of Europe. Not only do the politics of Germany take place here, but trends also emerge. A tourism hotspot, a city steeped in history and a cultural melting pot – this mixture makes Berlin a unique place with unlimited opportunities and the number one congress location in Germany.
The city that never sleeps
After a busy day at the event, Berlin welcomes you with Europe's largest museum complex, the Museum Island, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. Berlin also has over 50 theatres, 3 opera houses and numerous exhibitions. The Brandenburg Gate, once a symbol of the divided Germany, has become the emblem of the German capital. Nearly all traces of the wall that divided Berlin for almost 30 years have disappeared and today Berlin is situated in the heart of the European Union. Berlin definitely lives up to its name as “the city that never sleeps”.
The place where it’s all happening
Messe Berlin is the international meeting spot of Berlin. WCP 2017 will take place mainly in the recently constructed venue CityCube Berlin and in its adjacent halls.
