Munich as a conference destination

Munich is the capital city of Bavaria; an ultra-modern business city which is home to three universities and 1.5 million inhabitants. It is also a city with a notable zest for life, a tradition of hospitality, and a cosmopolitan outlook. Located on the Isar river, this is a dream city in an ideal location for event planners.

A break-out by the wild alpine river, at the heart of the city? Only in Munich! Sun worshippers, ramblers and people who have clearly just stepped out of a meeting all peacefully share space on the banks of the Isar on warm summer days. A few diligent types bring their laptops, while a handful of braver souls kick off their shoes, roll up their trouser legs and brave the cool water that flows directly from the Alps. Get together – Munich style. When it comes to the competition for the best city to live in or the most popular MICE destination, Munich always comes out on top.

The city’s location is simply unbeatable, nestled as it is amid the breath-taking lakes and Alpine foothills that characterise the landscape of Upper Bavaria, and within easy reach thanks to the award-winning Munich International Airport. With excellent universities and top companies, Munich is a leading business city and offers an inspirational environment for conferences and events.

The third-largest city in Germany has 1.5 million residents, and is connected to the surrounding area by a dense local public transport network. The perfect infrastructure also includes an extensive range of hotels in all categories and a wide variety of venues. Locations range from the splendid Royal Residence and trendy spaces in the former industrial quarter, to ultra-modern conference centres such as the Internationales Congress Center München.

The city delights visitors with its historical centre, magnificent monuments, vast, green oases and world-class cultural scene. Munich’s locals extend a hospitable welcome and cosmopolitan attitude to guests, inviting them to join the pulsing life of the city.

Economic clusters

In Munich, accumulated expertise meets an accumulated zest for life. The destination draws people, knowledge and creativity like a magnet, which contributes to the building of economic power and a high standard of living; in turn this opens up additional possibilities for secure, inspirational conventions, meetings and incentives.

A wealth of internationally successful companies have chosen Munich as their headquarters. The Bavarian capital, with a context shaped by science, research and technology, is the ideal setting.

The Convention Bureau welcomes and promotes intensive networking and the proactive exchange of knowledge between national and international event organisers and the local economy.
