KölnKongress looks back on an successful business year 2016: the highest level of revenues in of the company's history was registered and international congresses, large companies and well-known artists ensured a versatile and successful event year. Both the number of events and the number of visitors managed to maintain the high level of the previous year, and the total utilization of KölnKongress's facilities was almost at the same level as last year. "2016 was not an easy year for the event sector, so we are delighted to have been able to match the positive figures of the previous year and, particularly in this year, to have recorded the highest turnover since the founding of KölnKongress", said Bernhard Conin, Managing Director of KölnKongress GmbH. "As a result of the terror attacks in Paris and the violence on New Year's Eve in Cologne itself, short-term event bookings were down everywhere in the first half-year of 2016. Particularly pleasing, therefore, were the extremely high booking figures in the second half of the year, which made this result possible.”
The outlook is once again good for 2017: the Gürzenich has already been able to book numerous events in the medical field, the calendar of the Tanzbrunnen is already filled with popular crowd-pullers, the Congress-Centrum Koelnmesse is the guarantee for successful congresses, meetings and branch meetings and the Flora Köln is in great demand for company events, conferences, cultural events as well as private parties.
