New Platform for Meeting Experts in Berlin

The first Meeting Experts Conference, Mexcon 2012, will take place in Berlin. For the first time the meetings of the leading German associations of the congress, convention, incentive and event industry will take place under one umbrella.

“Mexcon highlights the significance of the Berlin convention business for the general public,” said visitBerlin CEO Burkhard Kieker. “The meeting and convention market is amongst the established key business drivers of the German capital. With its future-oriented topics, Mexcon is a perfect fit for Berlin, which is itself a trendsetter and leading meeting metropolis.”

The centrepiece of Mexcon 2012 is the specialist convention at the ICC Berlin on 20 June 2012. It will be opened by the Berlin Senator for Economic Affairs, Technology and Research, Sybille von Obernitz. 400 experts from the business community, academia and politics will discuss the future of the event industry.

During the other days the annual meetings, membership meetings and board meetings of the participating associations will take place. This includes the largest association of the meeting and event industry, MPI, as well as ICCA. Furthermore, the Berlin Convention Office of visitBerlin will organise, in co-operation with the visitBerlin Partner Agencies a large networking event. It will be staged at the former Tempelhof Airport on 19 June.
