Meet in Dresden

Ideal conditions

Events are like puzzles. Many small pieces have to fit together to create an all-round coherent product that inspires attendees. In Dresden, event professionals find all the elements for designing successful events and a first-class infrastructure for meetings and conferences, including varied surroundings, very good transport, short distances, and a diverse selection of venues.

Messe Dresden as the city’s trade fair grounds and the International Congress Center as well as Ostra-Areal and Ostra-Dome offer a first-class infrastructure for congresses with up to 6,000 attendees. For smaller events, choose from a wide range of unique settings for special experiences in romantic castles by the Elbe river, manor houses on vineyards, museum spaces full of art treasures, on Elbe paddle steamers or in historic industrial buildings.
