Planning an event

Conventions & conferences

The Bavarian “meeting metropolis” is synonymous with successful conventions and welcomes event planners with open arms. The cosmopolitan, relaxed way of life in Munich guarantees that you will enjoy the utmost hospitality during your stay.

The city is proud to be extremely accessible, economically successful, and a leader in the fields of science and technology. The inspiring environment, the enormous range of venues, and the professionalism of those working in the convention industry always ensure perfect conditions for the organisation of conferences, large-scale conventions and trade fairs with up to 500,000 participants.

More than 500 highly diverse venues means there is always a unique, unusual or simply practical setting for conventions, symposia and conferences: from the Olympic Stadium and the brewery halls to renowned convention hotels; prestigious rooms in the Royal Residence, Schloss Nymphenburg, or the renowned Deutsches Museum; and one of the most modern trade fair and convention centres in Europe.

Central and nearby

Munich is located at the heart of Europe and, thanks to its ultra-modern airport which has received numerous awards, the city can be reached easily from all over the world. Even from the airport, it’s possible to view the wonderful landscape, with its mountains and lakes, alongside the Bavarian metropolis. The well-established intra-European railway system and a network of excellent motorways will quickly transport you to the Bavarian capital. As you arrive, the perfect infrastructure continues to unfold: a sophisticated local public transport system rapidly moves convention participants from one location to the next.
