News & Innovations

Cologne Convention Bureau revamps media presentation for Cologne as congress location 

The Cologne Convention Bureau (CCB) has published a new version of the handbook Meeting Point Cologne (MPC) for the year 2017/18. The first part of the 156-page, richly illustrated handbook is produced in a magazine-style layout and provides the reader with highly informative and entertaining editorial content on Cologne as a congress location. The second part features an overview of around 150 partners from the following sectors: congress locations, conference hotels, event locations, and event services. Meeting Point Cologne therefore combines a wide range of both hard and soft facts on the advantages of Cologne as a location for the MICE sector and provides congress planners with first-class assistance in staging their event.

Quick and easy access to information via smartphone or tablet too

For the first time, the editorial content of this year’s annual handbook is also available via a responsive website for smartphone or tablet. Access is via a “teaser wall” at locations.cologne, where the handbook content supplements an online conference planner, an event calendar with dates of trade fairs, congresses and scientific events, and a presentation of the Cologne Convention Bureau and its services.

All the content of the new Meeting Point Cologne is also available at locations.cologne. A print copy can be ordered free of charge at convention@koelntourismus.de.
