Lübeck. Here, tradition meets modern times. Seven church spires and beautiful views – as a „Conference city with a human touch“ Lübeck offers just that tiny little extra that makes a congress, a conference or a business trip extraordinary and exciting. The Holsten Gate, marzipan, the Buddenbrook-House and the scenery of the Old Town, which was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 1987, are all world-famous. The impressive St. Anne’s Museum Quarter presents modern art and medieval magnificence and Lübeck has won a new treasure with the European Hansemuseum which tells the fascinating story of the Hanse in a cosmopolitan and unique way. Just a few steps away the seaside resort Travemünde attracts the visitors.Today Lübeck is a city of the 21st century and a place, where numerous scientific institutions, medical research and technology as well as food technology play an important role. The international congress centre adds to Lübeck’s attractiveness. Situated in the Metropolregion region of Hamburg, Lübeck benefits from excellent travel connections and is used to hosting conventions for more than 2000 people and various symposiums, dedicated to the exchange of knowledge among professionals. These are the strengths that lübecKongress and the Hamburg Convention Bureau as “Metropolregion Hamburg” promote at booth G100 also at this year’s IMEX, one of the key international fairs in the meeting- and incentive travel sector, which takes place in Frankfurt from April 19th – 21th 2016.

„The businesse travel sector is vital for Lübeck and Travemünde. This is why we put our focus on the promotion of the city as an attractive destination for conferences, congresses and events.” states Ilona Jarabek, Chairwoman of luebecKongress and CEO of Lübeck’s  Music and Congress Center. She emphasizes that apart from the classic holiday and city break sector the business travel trade is an important additional target group for Lübeck and Travemünde independent of the season. „With lübecKongress we have created the perfect instrument to combine our resources to present Lübeck as a competent congress location.”

Fresh, unconventional and beyond the usual business-like style, lübecKongress promotes Lübeck and Travemünde as a perfect congress and conference destination. Information is given on the website as well as in the conference journal „Continuous questioner” in German and English, which gives detailed advice concerning the city’s congress and conference venues, event locations, hotels, event services and arrivals and offers unique day and evening programmes.

luebecKongress is a Private Public Partnership in which 27 strong partners of industry, science, tourism and event industry have joined forces in order to advance and develop the prosperous congress and conference market in the Hanseatic city of Lübeck.
