A David amongst the Goliath(s). This week a UK trade magazine for the Meeting Industry with over 18,000 readers, has published the 2009 results of its annual Readers poll. In the category, “Top International Purpose-Built Venue”, the axica conference and convention centre Berlin, was voted runner up, second only in the world to the Barcelona International Convention Centre (CCIB) but ahead of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
“This is truly a remarkable result and is a tribute to the work we have done on an international stage over the last 9 years.” comments Jochen A. Lohmar, Managing Director. “2009 sees the tenth anniversary of the axica in the DZ Bank building and I can think of no better way to start the year than to receive this kind of international recognition. It also adds to the momentum Berlin is currently gaining as a top conference destination, which also was voted fifth in the world in its own right.” axica represents Berlin’s exclusive conference and convention centre. It caters for 7 to 700 people, be it for congresses or conferences, award shows or gala events. And all within the impressive architecture of the award-winning architect, Frank O. Gehry. www.axica.de
