Create change: congresses after covid

Hoist the sails and head for the future

After a long period of uncertainty, we at MESSE BREMEN and CONGRESS BREMEN are looking forward to finally picking up speed and giving your ideas and wishes space – in every respect: space for genuine exchange and intensive networking. For personal conversations and professional input. For experiences that are as exciting as they are extraordinary. And this is how we do it.


Back to that particular live feeling – with a breath of fresh air

When the lights went out in 2020 after more than 100 international events, at first, we admittedly had to take a deep breath and count to ten. But as the saying goes: life goes on. Or as we would say in Bremen, which might sound funny to you: wat mutt, dat mutt.

So, after a brief moment of shock, we got to work: getting everything shipshape so that we’d be ready when our industry picked up again. This is now. We are looking forward to shaking off the dust, hoisting the sails and finally returning to that particular live feeling – the spirit: create change.

Sustainability, authenticity, experiential value, interaction, participation, multi-sensory and community building – all these are no longer just buzzwords, but the stuff of which the flag is made. The flag under which we want to sail into the future. Do you also want to rethink congress and are looking for a place to take off? Then let’s tackle it together. The manageable size of our grounds and the postmodern style of the Congress Centre now create not only a unique location, but also fertile ground for sprouting ideas and a place to meet and get in touch.

With the same quality and fresh wind, we at MESSE BREMEN and CONGRESS BREMEN say: full speed ahead! And we cordially invite you to join us.

Focus on face-to-face events

If the distance of the past months has shown us one thing, it is that human interaction and proximity are irreplaceable and that without the hustle and bustle in the crowded hallways and the buzz of excited exchange, our halls seem rather dreary. That’s why, even after the pandemic, we are focusing on events in presence.


With seven halls, a congress centre and additional room division options on a total of about 40,000 square metres: While group rooms and foyers invite you to exchange ideas and do some networking the lecture halls with different dimensions are all about professional input at its best. Our fan-grid ventilation system ensures plenty of fresh air even when the halls are full.


Right in the middle: Our central location near the main railway station and in the heart of the city facilitates arrival and departure and builds bridges – from a congress visit during the day to a pub visit at night. Our guests experience Bremen in all its facets – the variety of industries, the distinct cultural scene, the maritime flair, and the sense of what really counts: being in good company and spending time together.


Because nothing can replace real emotions. Because congresses do not live on expert talks and panel discussions alone, but on exchange and interpersonal relations. Because exhibition stands are hardly ever visited digitally. That’s why at MESSE BREMEN and CONGRESS BREMEN we focus on personal talks and support from the first to the last step.

In addition:

to that we offer you a state-of-the-art streaming studio directly on the grounds of MESSE BREMEN and CONGRESS BREMEN. From here, live broadcasts and transmissions as well as a varied media design ensure that your event is more accessible, more flexible and more multimedia than ever before:

  • Speakers from all over the world can be simultaneously connected and interactively involved.
  • A larger audience gains access and local boundaries are overcome.
  • Digital components add new sensory impressions to the visitor experience.

What remains are dynamic trade fair and congress experiences, personal exchange, character and competence. And yet Covid has also shown us how we can make MESSE BREMEN and CONGRESS BREMEN more future-proof in order to ride the crest of a wave of success.

Create change – and start now!

Enough waiting – we’re picking up speed! Where is the journey heading? To a 2022 full of beautiful events:

NEURO 2022. 

At the neurological conference on multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and dementia that takes place on 24 September 2022, doctors, therapists and carers will meet sufferers and relatives. Besides specialist lectures and an accompanying industrial exhibition, the focus will be on an interdisciplinary exchange.

ITHEC 2022.

Thermoplastic composite technologies and lightweight constructions build the centre of interest at the International Conference and Exhibition on Thermoplastic Composites. As the world’s only specialist conference and exhibition in this field, ITHEC brings together experts from research and industry and offers the best opportunities to transfer knowledge and develop future business cooperation. The congress is organised in close cooperation between CONGRESS BREMEN and the Faserinstitut Bremen and takes place on 12 and 13 October 2022.


Since 2004, around 450 science journalists have come together once a year at the Congress Centrum to discuss “knowledge, data, media”. This year, the forum, which is considered the most important of its kind in the German-speaking world, will take place from 17 to 19 October 2022.

Hydrogen Technology Conference & Expo 2022.

As Europe’s most important conference and exhibition in this field, the Hydrogen Technology Conference & Expo focuses on advanced technologies for the hydrogen and fuel cell industry. On 19 and 20 October 2022, the format will bring together specialists and interested parties in our halls 04 and 05 such as the Congress Centrum. The programme includes more than 150 lectures and joint work on innovative processes.

Space Tech Expo Europe.

Once again, Space Tech Expo – Europe’s largest exhibition and conference in the field of space technology – will gather the international aerospace industry in the heart of Bremen. From 15 to 17 November 2022, more than 100 speakers and 450 exhibitors will ensure knowledge growth and an impressive all-round experience for over 5,000 participants from the B2B sector.

In addition, there are numerous other events that will fill our halls and rooms with life again – trade fairs, congresses and more. We stand for industry diversity, combine tradition and innovation, give sustainability a chance – and thus create future-proof congresses. CONGRESS BREMEN: create change.
