right here. What makes MESSE BREMEN and CONGRESS BREMEN so special.

The Hanseatic city of Bremen in Northern Germany may seem small at first, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for with its entrepreneurial spirit and what else it has to offer. An immense variety of industries between tradition and innovation makes the city-state a strong business location – both nationally and internationally.

At the same time, the diverse and extremely vibrant cultural scene ensures that there is always something going on in Bremen – and since everything is so nicely situated next to each other, our guests are automatically in the middle of it all. Just right here.

It is exactly this interplay that gives the city its very special charm. We at MESSE BREMEN and CONGRESS BREMEN use this potential of the Hanseatic city in the north – and turn it into your benefit:

  • Short distances not only characterize your arrival and departure, they also make your entire stay on site considerably more relaxed.
  • Endless possibilities make your visions come true: Seven halls and numerous rooms can be combined just as you like, offering space for events of all kinds.
  • Acting future- and service-oriented to us means not only keeping an eye on sustainability and using the latest technology, but also providing personal full-service support. In addition, we cooperate with reliable partners from the region.

Short distances.

“Combined with excellent facilities, and many industrial companies in the local area, MESSE BREMEN was the perfect venue to host our event. We are very excited to return again in 2022!”

– Mike Robinson, CEO Trans-Global Events Ltd.

Often exhibition centres are located on the outskirts of the city because of the space they take up – outsourced to industrial areas or fallow ground. Not so with us.

MESSE BREMEN, which shares its site with the Congress Centre Bremen and the ÖVB-Arena, offers a location that is second to none. Located in the immediate vicinity of Bürgerpark and the main railway station, MESSE BREMEN and CONGRESS BREMEN are an integral part of the city – central, inseparable, right here. The result: short journeys – no matter where you come from or where you’re going.

Thanks to the central location of MESSE BREMEN and CONGRESS BREMEN in the heart of the city, even a short visit to the trade fair or congress is enough to get an all-round impression of Bremen and enjoy the maritime flair.

The short distances during the journey, as well as within the city, offer several advantages that also have an impact on the attractiveness of your event:

  • You allow visitors a pleasant, uncomplicated arrival and departure – and an atmosphere that invites them to spend the evening together in the Old Town.
  • You integrate the maritime character of the city into the trade fair or congress visit and thus create a multi-dimensional experience.
  • You offer your guests numerous opportunities to round off their visit to Bremen and extend it as they wish – for example, with a stay in one of the many hotels in the immediate vicinity.

Our smallest room covers 51 square metres, our largest hall more than 1 hectare. This means: We at MESSE BREMEN and CONGRESS BREMEN stand for flexibility.

Would you like to combine an exhibition and a congress? Then our divided rooms offer you the opportunity to use the space in different ways and to benefit from the versatile equipment and architecture. Or would you prefer to have the exhibition and lecture areas merge instead? If so, we have a capacity of more than 23,000 square metres of gross hall space at your disposal, which you can exploit to the full.

Our total of seven halls, which also house the Congress Centrum Bremen and the ÖVB-Arena, are characterized by clear differences in dimensioning and design. This means that we at MESSE BREMEN and CONGRESS BREMEN can turn all your event wishes into reality and equip them with a suitable space – without any extra construction work.
