In 2014, business trips from Europe to congresses and conferences in Germany increased by 5 %. A total of 12.4 million European business people has travelled to Germany last year.

Matthias Schultze, Managing Director of the German Convention Bureau:

“The number of business trips from Europe to conferences and events in Germany has grown year on year for the past five years – from 2.3 million in 2009 to 3.7 million in 2014. There are several reasons behind these encouraging figures. Germany offers excellent infrastructure and good value for money, both important criteria for event planners. It also offers several areas of expertise which organisers can work with for events which cover related industries. Several German cities and regions lead in the areas of business and science, and the country is a leading centre in the field of sustainability and innovation.”
