The wonderful Mövenpick Hotel Berlin, located in the city Centre of Berlin (at Potsdamer Platz) was the chosen Venue to host the conference.

The building was a former Siemens building completely renovated although it still preserves some features of its earlier design. The recent renovations paid close attention to design and detail and resulted in the modern interiors with classic accents.

In this 4-Star Superior Hotel, the Mövenpick Hotel Berlin staff is very happy to welcome all guests in the 243 hotel rooms, 12 event and meeting rooms, gym, sauna, restaurant and bar.
