The Cologne Convention Bureau (CCB) has published a new edition of its guide for event planners, Meeting Point Cologne. In its seven chapters, the 138-page brochure provides comprehensive information about Cologne as a destination for conventions and meetings and offers in-depth insights into the various facets and strengths of the cathedral city.
In addition to the themes of congresses and trade fairs, science, business and logistics, the brochure also focuses on the city’s “soft” factors — all the things that make Cologne such a lovable metropolis. The main emphasis is on the connection between the convention sector and the local areas of expertise in science and business, in line with the competence-area strategy of the German Convention Bureau (GCB).
Clever Cologne citizens — exclusively interviewed for the CCB
In the last edition of Meeting Point Cologne, the theme of air connected all of the articles; the current edition is devoted to the theme of earth. We’ve found interesting discussion partners who approach the theme of earth in all of its facets. We begin with Professor Marcel Bucher (CEPLAS – Cluster of Excellence on Plant Sciences), who explains why he is trying to understand plants. His answers, together with the statements of the other two interviewees, Prof. Dr. Edgar Schömig (Chief Executive Officer of the University Hospital of Cologne) and Dr. Hans-Peter Fröhlich (Cologne Institute for Economic Research), offer new insights into the renown and the future of Cologne.
The locations we chose for our photo shoot are typical, and they perfectly illustrate the statements about Cologne — especially that of Professor Schömig. The CEO of the University Hospital of Cologne praised “the vitality of Cologne” while being interviewed at a local weekly market. The five-person team of CCB also met up for a photo shoot. To show how deeply rooted it is in Cologne, though always remaining open to new experiments, the team posed in the greenhouse of the Biozentrum Köln (Cologne Biology Centre).
