Regional networking through innovative economic clusters

If you are planning an event related to one of Hamburg’s economic clusters, the Hamburg Convention Bureau will be happy to provide you with the relevant person to help you establish contact.

Without visions of the future and the willingness to invest in new technologies, Hamburg would certainly not be the thriving economic centre that it is today. Hamburg is one of Germany’s top business locations, and growth rates continue to rise. Industry knowledge, scientific curiosity and the eagerness to collaborate have always been at the heart of Hamburg’s entrepreneurial culture.

As one of the first of Germany’s federal states, Hamburg has adopted a policy of bundling and promoting its strengths and competencies in a systematic way. The regional economic clusters that have been defined as part of this process focus on promising growth areas and aim to establish cross-sectoral networks between businesses, research institutions, academia and politics. Individual cluster initiatives aim to promote projects in practice and promote the training of specialists. Designed as dialogue-based platforms, Hamburg’s cluster initiatives bring experts from different sectors together and contribute to creative exchange and the transfer of knowledge – which is also reflected in the large number of prestigious B2B events and conferences that are held in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region each year. To harness this potential even further, the Hamburg Convention Bureau works closely with the Hamburg cluster initiatives, with the aim of acquiring further renowned congresses and meetings for Hamburg and Hamburg’s cluster industries.
