The Venue

With 195 meetings for associations in 2015, Berlin has risen to the top of the annual International Congress and Convention Association’s (ICCA) host city ranking. It is the central location in the heart of Europe and it is its unique mixture of traditional and modern, of art and culture that makes Berlin so popular.


The ICA 2018 will be held in the ESTREL, Germany’s largest hotel. The Congress Centre alongside the ESTREL covers a space of 269,000 sq ft – roughly the size of two football pitches. Space enough to hold the various parallel sessions during the ICA 2018 – up to 11 lectures will be held at the same time.


Detailed information on the congress venue will be available in due course.

About Berlin

Berlin looks back on an eventful history of more than 750 years. Various historic episodes have left marks on the face and the atmosphere of the city: The Brandenburg Gate, Victory Column, Olympic stadium or the Urania World time clock. These and other monuments and memorials remind visitors of the city’s lively past. Nowadays, Berlin is an open-minded city, a melting pot for many cultures. More than 190 nationalities represented in the city shape the metropolis in many ways. This is also reflected in the cultural life. 175 museums, 140 theatres, 300 private or municipal galleries and 300 cinemas demonstrate that Berlin is an excellent destination when it comes to art and culture.


Around 12.5 million people visit the German capital every year – and the visitor numbers are increasing. From the famous landmark, the Brandenburg Gate, the symbol for division and unification of Germany, to the Reichstag, the seat of the German government – the city has many interesting sights to offer. One highlight – and also a historic location – is the Museum Island, home to five internationally-renowned museums, e.g. the Pergamon Museum with its most prominent exhibit, the monumental Pergamon Altar. Last but not least, many beautiful parks and gardens with impressive stately homes such as like Charlottenburg Palace or Sanssouci Palace attract many visitors every year.


Apart from the cultural sights, Berlin is also a culinary hotspot. Around 4,500 restaurants serve almost every type of food. One particularly famous Berlin dish is the Currywurst, a fried sausage with spiced tomato sauce. There are numerous restaurants where you can try Currywurst. It is a dish definitely not to be missed when visiting Berlin.
