Cologne Convention Bureau (CCB) builds on the key industry sectors strategy of the German Convention Bureau (GCB)
The Cologne Convention Bureau (CCB) has published a new edition of the Meeting Point Cologne manual for event planners. The new Meeting Point Cologne, which is now available, gives meeting planners comprehensive yet concise information about Cologne as a congress and conference destination. The brochure, which is almost 130 pages long, provides an overview of Cologne’s convention infrastructure as well as many interesting facts about the city in both German and English.
In terms of the content of the new brochure, the CCB builds on the key industry sectors strategy of the German Convention Bureau (GCB), emphasizing Cologne’s strengths as a science and economic hub. Both of these areas of expertise are increasingly relevant to international congress organizers when they choose the destination for their event. In addition to a clear presentation of Cologne’s science landscape, the brochure includes an interview with the dean of the University of Cologne, Prof. Dr. Axel Freimuth, in which he talks about the excellence status of the university and the new horizons this opens up for the city. In another conversation Frank Bartels, the head of event and travel management for the REWE Group, explains why his company and Cologne have been a perfect team for a long time.
In keeping with the theme of the year for the Kölner Wissenschaftsrunde (Cologne’s science round table), the topic of aerospace is a common thread that runs through the new Meeting Point Cologne. The five-member CCB team got into the spirit of the year’s theme by venturing into a space capsule dressed as astronauts for a photo shoot at the European Astronaut Centre (ESA/EAC).
