Meeting Place Berlin Numero 8
From 2nd-6th July 2015 the 8th Editon of Meeting Place Berlin took place. The Hosted Buyer programme is hosted every two years by visitBerlin Convention Office aiming to acquire congresses, conventions, incentives and similar events for the city of Berlin at international level.
This year's Meeting Place Berlin has reached the highest diversity of participating countries since the event was established in 2005. In total, 130 applicants from 30 different countries and 4 continents got approved for a participation. The international variety shows the growing demand of Meeting Place Berlin. Our 130 participants got elected out of 546 registrations.
Despite of the enormous heat wave we had during the weekend and which furthermore had been the hottest weekend of the year in Berlin, our participants kept up enough energy for attending the tight programme. At record temperatures they participated in the workshop at WECC Westhafen Event & Convention Center Berlin on “Meet Professionals Day” and explored Berlin during “Meet Berlin Day”. On “Meet Facilities Day” our guests have chosen one site inspection tour out of a variety of different theme tours during which different reputaded hotels, congress and event locations were inspected. During the most important programme point “Meet Professionals Day”, 513 hours of one-to-one business conversations between hosted buyers and suppliers were made. Each evening ended with exciting networking events which showed the hip, unique and culturally-historical diversity of Berlin.
To sum it up, we look back on a successful special event and feel certain, that Meeting Place Berlin 2015 made some big impression on our visitors from all over the globe by showing what Berlin has to offer to organizers of the MICE industry.
