AXICA Kongress- und Tagungszentrum

Event location

With its location directly in the heart of Berlin at the Brandenburg Gate, the masterpiece by architect Frank O. Gehry is one of the most exclusive and unique conference venues to be found in Germany or even worldwide. Here, design combines perfectly with functionality and the event rooms invite to discuss innovations or develop new approaches.

With a special conference venue like the AXICA, it is much easier and more lasting to leave a lasting impression on your guests, to bring people together and to transport content, thanks to the excellent technical equipment and catering that excites all the senses!

Live streaming and video conferencing is an essential requirement in the event industry. It is not a challenge, it is a chance to be able to reach your participants anywhere. AXICA has therefore launched the “Plug and Play Studio” in the room Plenum in cooperation with the technology provider AMBION - a live stream and video conferencing tool that enables professional digital events for ten to 20,000 users. In addition, all other rooms of the AXICA can be equipped as professional studios.

The Special Location is the ideal place for business and also social events. The building is dominated by grandiose glass surfaces and contemporary architecture. Bright, light-flooded, clear in its formal language, the building welcomes guests from politics, business and society. Lightness, transparency and sophisticated design unite in perfect symbiosis.

Commitment to sustainability

No premium without sustainability - we have given ourselves this principle, we always question ourselves and have ourselves regularly audited in order to set and achieve new goals objectively.
