The 96th Lions Clubs International Convention Hamburg 2013 is coming to Hamburg. Hamburg Messe und Congress (HMC) will be the hotspot for this mega event, as in April for the 28th Haspa Marathon Hamburg and in May for the 34th German Protestant Church Convention (Kirchentag 2013). The Lions are meeting in Germany for the first time, with expected attendance of more than 23,000 participants from over 130 countries. The Hamburg Fair site and CCH-Congress Center Hamburg will be at the centre of activities from 5 to 9 July, as the location for the Convention Service Center, the exhibition and the Lions Seminars.
This is just the third time that the Lions Clubs International Convention is being held in Europe, following Nice in 1978 and Birmingham in 1989. “We are very proud to welcome the Lions to Hamburg for their International Convention,” says Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO of HMC. “This is the biggest convention ever to be held in this city. We look forward to showing Hamburg’s outstanding skills and facilities for hosting international conventions with so many participants.”
