“IT companies from the USA have discovered Berlin as a convention location”, says Heike Mahmoud, Director of Conventions, visitBerlin Berlin Convention Office. “In recent months we have seen a marked increase in demand and have already received confirmations from several large conventions. Berlin scores international points particularly due to its image as a creative city and its lively start-up scene.“

This is also reflected in the convention statistics for the first half of 2016: 14 percent of the approx. 63,000 events that took place in Berlin can be attributed to “Medicine, Science and Research”.
