Space for Large Conferences: Congress Centres in Leipzig

Is your next association meeting approaching? Looking for the right conference venue for thousands of delegates? Are you also in need of space for a trade show? Then you should definitely check out Leipzig! Leipziger Messe has two large venues for conferences and congresses: the Congress Center Leipzig and the KONGRESSHALLE am Zoo Leipzig. Both facilities are characterised by the space they offer, their flexibility, their expertise and their service. As an organiser, you will also benefit from the expertise of an internationally successful trade fair company. Let us introduce you to both venues.

Congress Center Leipzig (CCL) for congresses with up to 20,000 participants

Plenty of space for conferences of all sizes

A naturally lit atrium and lots of customisable space: the Congress Center Leipzig (CCL) is the perfect combination of aesthetics and functionality. It is one of the most modern congress centres in Europe. And it is directly integrated into the exhibition grounds of Leipziger Messe. In numbers, the CCL has 23 halls and rooms with seating for between 30 and 1000 people. There are also multifunctional, multi-purpose areas and spacious foyers. The exhibition halls and meeting areas in the Messehaus are right next door. The rooms and halls can be combined to suit the requirements of your event. Conferences with just a few hundred delegates are just as easy to organise as congresses with many thousands of visitors and a large trade fair.

Fully customisable exhibition hall

Everything within reach for your delegates

Benefit from the advantages of Leipzig’s exhibition grounds! You can hold large conferences in the CCL and in the neighbouring Exhibition Hall 2. With more than 20,000 square metres of space, it is ideal for presenting numerous exhibitors and integrated plenary halls. This offers you a major advantage: everything is within easy reach, leaving more time for meetings and networking. One event that benefits from this is OTWorld, the leading international congress and trade fair for modern medical aids. The exhibition hall can also accommodate a large plenary hall with several thousand seats and a stage. The large amount of space on offer and the flexible layout has also convinced the German Child and Youth Welfare Congress. Europe’s largest youth welfare summit will welcome delegates to the CCL and Leipzig’s exhibition grounds in May 2025. Some 30,000 guests are expected in total. But what if you don’t need an exhibition hall? The CCL also provides ample space for compact exhibitions as part of a conference. The OECD’s International Transport Forum has been taking advantage of this for years. Just look at the references – the CCL regularly impresses organisers as a venue for national and international conferences.

KONGRESSHALLE am Zoo Leipzig for meetings with up to 1,200 delegates

Historic setting for modern conferences

Want to hold your event close to the city centre? Then you should definitely consider the KONGRESSHALLE am Zoo Leipzig. The Gründerzeit building from 1900 is an architectural highlight and makes for a real eye-catcher. Since its renovation in 2016, the KONGRESSHALLE has been operated by the CCL as a modern conference centre. Fifteen halls and rooms of various types, plus foyers and lounges, can accommodate from 10 to 1,200 delegates. Again, there is plenty of flexibility in terms of room combinations. Add to this the proven CCL-style full service. Another advantage: it is within walking distance of Leipzig’s main railway station and many hotels in the city centre.

Full personal service for your congress in Leipzig

From catering to stand construction

Whether in the CCL or the KONGRESSHALLE: you hire more than just a venue. You also get expert personal contacts who are experienced in the conference business. What’s more, you benefit from the services of the Leipziger Messe group. Subsidiary fairgourmet is responsible for all catering at both venues. Experts are on hand to plan and set up your exhibition and provide event technology. And that’s not all: do you need help with accommodation for your delegates? Or when putting together a supporting programme? Or ideas for an evening event? As part of the congress initiative “Feel the spirit … do-it-at-leipzig.de”, the CCL and KONGRESSHALLE teams have excellent networks. They will be happy to help and advise you.

Eco-friendly local travel

Convenient public transport services and e-charging stations

Are you concerned about the environmental footprint of your event? You’re in luck. The CCL and the KONGRESSHALLE focus on eco-friendly mobility offers. The KONGRESSHALLE is located directly next to a tram stop. Public transport and intercity trains provide easy access to the CCL. And you can get people even more excited about travelling to your event in a sustainable way: team up with Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe (LVB) to offer a congress ticket. With this, your delegate badge then also serves as a ticket for public transport in Leipzig. Electric charging points are available in the CCL car park for delegates travelling by electric car. There is also a charging station for e-bike batteries and plenty of bicycle parking on the exhibition grounds.

Certified sustainability

Taking action for Growth in Balance

Speaking of sustainability: the trade fair company Leipziger Messe is certified according to Green Globe standards. The CCL and KONGRESSHALLE group of companies is also committed to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. Under the slogan Growth in Balance, the focus is on aspects of social, environmental and economic sustainability. Here are some examples: the venues use 100 per cent green electricity. Significant energy savings are achieved through advanced sound systems and lighting technology. fairgourmet focuses on sustainable gastronomy. Its sustainable approaches to catering include fair trade certified organic coffee, sourcing local produce and waste reduction. The CCL is a co-signatory of the fairpflichtet sustainability code. These and other ideas are in good company in Leipzig. Many venues and partners are committed to sustainable events.
