bcc Berlin Congress Center

Event location

The bcc is located in the center of Berlin with 5,000 m² of space for up to 1,500 people over three levels. In addition to the dome hall as the heart of this listed building, 25 additional event rooms are available for your event. The majority of the rooms have movable partition walls that allow various room combinations. Equipment and furniture coordinated with the architecture, in-house catering, modern conference technology and experienced staff form a holistic service concept for high-quality meetings, congresses and conferences. 

We look forward to getting to know you and your event during an on-site visit or virtual tour.

Commitment to sustainability

Events at the bcc stand for the use of sustainable technologies, the effective use of resources and sustainable event operations. In addition to an energy-efficient lighting system, electricity from 100 % renewable energy sources, modern ventilation control system with heat recovery and the use of regional goods and services, employee satisfaction and the social aspects play an important role.

Most of the technology, furniture and other equipment used at the bcc is already on site and owned by the bcc. This also avoids thousands of truck kilometres per event. Reusable products and materials are preferred for exhibition and decorative constructions. Due to many years of experience, food quantities can be precisely calculated in the bcc's own kitchen and overproduction avoided.

Detailed information can be found in the "Information Sheet Sustainability in the bcc" below.
