This 150-page planning guide contains all the essential information needed by convention and event organisers when it comes to selecting Berlin as their event venue.

More than 90 hotels and unusual locations are featured in the latest 2010/2011 issue. Together, they boast some 400 meeting rooms offering total exhibition space of just under 220,000 square metres. They can cater for around 59,000 participants. For the very first time, this latest edition contains details of hotels that are both under construction and in the pipeline.
