Hamburg scores high in quality of life, skilled professionals and dynamic growth

With more than 60,000 events and more than two million participants annually, Hamburg confirms its relevance as a convention and congress location in Germany’s north. The Lions Clubs International Convention in the summer of 2013 was one of the biggest congress in the history of the city, with approximately 23,000 guests from around the world. In 2019 Hamburg hosted the Rotary International Convention – the next large-scale international event with more than 26.000 guests from 170 countries.

An ever-increasing number of visitors, a dynamically growing tourism market and continued interest among investors clearly illustrate the attractiveness of this destination. Hamburg is one of the most popular destinations among German residents and scores high in international comparison thanks to the city’s high quality of life, its large potential for highly skilled workers and an excellent infrastructure suited to hosting congresses and meetings.

In addition to traditional business travellers, trade visitors and private travellers, about one-fifth of overnight stays in Hamburg are attributable to meetings, incentives, conventions and events in Hamburg. This corresponds to about 2.5 million overnight stays annually – and numbers are rising.

Sustainable opportunities for green meetings

As a green metropolis, Hamburg provides the perfect setting for planning events in an eco-friendly way. More and more hotels and service providers are embracing this approach and train their staff in the area of sustainability or acquire certification according to the international Green Globe environmental standard.

In Hamburg’s restaurant and catering industry, regional specialties are experiencing a true renaissance. Short distances between conference hotels, venues, points of interest and cultural hotspots and the city’s excellent public infrastructure have a positive impact on the city’s ecological balance sheet as CO2-intensive transfers are avoided. With the HVV-KombiTicket for conferences, meetings and seminars, participants can travel across Hamburg’s entire local public transport network at reasonable rates and in a climate-friendly way. Participants arriving in and departing from Hamburg as a group can make use of Deutsche Bahn’s Veranstaltungsticket.
