Immerse yourself in culture by visiting the countless museums, galleries, and concert halls, or experience Berlin’s world-renowned nightlife, which boasts an array of bars, restaurants, and clubs that stay open around the clock.

EASE OF ACCESS
Convenient national and internal connections, thanks in part to the many low-cost airlines that service the city, make Berlin the ideal place for your event. Even though Berliners will have to wait a few more years for their new airport, the city is nevertheless very accessible via the two existing options: Tegel (in the northwest of the city) and Schönefeld (in the southeast) — both only a 30-minute drive from the city center.
The centrally located and architecturally striking Hauptbahnhof is the city’s main railway station, which provides hassle-free connection from numerous European cities. In some cases, travel by train can be even faster and less expensive than air travel, so definitely consider your transportation options when planning your event.
Berlin has a high density of the most diverse hotels, especially in downtown. Due to our long-standing relationships with most hotels as a DMC and incoming agency, we are able to obtain a good price-performance ratio for our customers.
For exclusive groups or smaller meetings, the city also offers a variety of fancy boutique and design hotels in all variations and price ranges, such as the Hotel de Rome, the Stue or the Amano houses.
For the pure congress and conference business, many of the hotels are located in the city centre of Berlin as well as in the city west. Hotels and other event locations from our DMC´s portfolio offer a broad range of possibilities and room sizes that are suitable for workshops with breakouts or even become the central element of the event. Of particular note are the Hilton on the Gendarmenmarkt, the Marriott on Potsdamer Platz or the Intercontinental on the Tiergarten, to name only a few.
If you plan an incentive event, our event agency recommends other places with rather spacious rooms in case the guests arrive in company.
Please note while planning your event that the utilization of service providers and the hotels in the city during trade fairs, such as the Green Week, the ITB or the IFA, is very high and therefore likely to be more expensive than usual.
Prices and conditions:
As one of the leading event agencies in Berlin, we have very good relationships with the Ritz Carlton, Marriott, Hilton, Rocco Forte, Intercontinental, Adlon and many more. Thus we can rely on the good service and the best conditions of our partners.
The GPM event agency also plans and carries out international productions, so we are very familiar with the big European cities and have a good comparison. Berlin offers many different and diverse locations compared to other European countries. This was caused by the unique history of the city. Due to the division of Berlin many places were in the throes of dormancy especially in east Berlin and most of it was only rediscovered and brought back to life after the fall of the wall.
In the first search for a suitable location, our DMC Berlin pays special attention to the following points:
- Number of guests
- Type of event (gala, informal evening, tribute, party)
- If possible: definition of goals. What feeling or with what message should the guests be introduced? What part of the event should be utmost remembered?
- existing Features such as technology, furniture, stage, kitchen, etc.
Please note: Depending on the budget, there are locations that we can customize for you from the fork to the loudspeaker. There are also outstanding locations where the furniture and catering is part of the house and therefore cheaper.
- Location (esp. distance to the residence of the guests)
- Style - here Berlin has a lot to offer:
Starting historical, such as the Schlütersaal or Museum of Communication to modern, the Axica at Pariser Platz or U5 Tunnel at Potsdamer Platz. Industrial - such as the Classic Remise, E-Werk, Radialsystem, Motorwerk or clubs like the Spindler & Klatt and the Sage Restaurant. There are also beautiful outdoor locations such as the island of Lindwerder or the many beer gardens in the city and on the riverside of the Spree.
We would like to advise you the following tips, wehen planning the next event in Berlin:
- Trade fair and event periods: If you are flexible in your choice of dates, first look at the Berlin trade fair & event calendar or discuss the appropriate period with us. During the Green Week (January) and the Fashion Week (January and July), the Berlinale (February), the ITB (March), the IFA (September), just to name a few of the big highlights, hotel prices in particular are significantly higher. In addition with short-term planning the selection of locations for lets say evening events is very limited. Logistics areas such as transport, catering, technology and personnel are also affected and can restrict flexibility.
- Choice of Location: Either in the choice of the hotel and in a venue, it should be noted that Berlin has two centers due to its history. Firstly the center of Berlin, where many of the historic sights are within walking distance. Furthermore the City West invites you to shop and is much closer in the direction of the fairgrounds. So for example, if you are planning an evening event as part of a trade fair, a location in the western part of the city is recommended, as it is easier for many of your guests to reach. If you are planning a meeting or convention for example in a hotel, we would rather recommend the district Mitte, as attendees can explore the city with a short amount of time after the meeting.
- Lead time: The longer the time frame of the planning phase is, the greater the selection and, consequently the opportunity to achieve an adequate price-performance ratio.
- Seasons: Depending on the nature of the event, especially when activities are planned, the months of April to September are certainly better, as many activities are more fun when the weather is nice. In general, it is obvious that every city radiates more charm at pleasant temperatures than on a rainy November day. Berlin is no exception, although we can also offer great activities during the winter months.
Berlin is the place where you can closely experience German history. In addition to the classic tours that can be done by foot, by bus or on a boat, there are also many other possible combinations.
These tours can be upgraded by adding special locations as a highlight along the way, such as the TV tower or the Reichstag building. Due to the connections of our DMC Berlin team to the Reichtstag staff, we are able to provide your guests with a snack and even arrange a customized meal on the rooftop terrace.
Of course you can also combine history with activity, such as cross-golfing in the former interception station of the Allies on top of the Teufelsberg. To reach the location the guests could catch a Trabbi or find new ways of transportation - let our references inspire you.
Rather exclusive is the tour through the Berlin Philharmonic followed by a private concert conducted by a violinist of the Philharmonic. Afterwards you may have some champagne and talk to the musician to gain deeper and personal insights into the world of the Philharmonic.
The possible combinations of activities are endless. Depending on group size, composition, budget and schedule, we will realize the ideal concept to exceed your expectations.
Acting sustainably has become a social responsibility for each one of us. So we would like to bring this idea closer to you in the planning and implementation of your event.
During a production we pay special attention to the use of local products for the catering, we prevent unnecessary prints and ban the use of plastic (or disposable). In addition, one can determine the carbon footprint and neutralize it with the support of certified carbon offset projects.
A well-founded carbon footprint forms the basis for a successful climate protection concept. The carbon footprint captures the CO2 emissions caused by an event. It provides valuable information about the respective climate impact and serves to develop an effective climate protection
CO2 emissions that can not be further reduced can be offset by certificates from your financially supported climate protection projects. We focus to ensure that the projects not only lead to ecological but also to social benefits. This is ensured by high standards and permanently verified by independent third parties.
The costs are surprisingly low. If you would like to neutralize your carbon emission, we can determine the costs for that without obligation.
Do good and talk about it!
By supporting the chosen climate project, you are able to use and promote a special label "Carbon Neutral Event/ Travel" on all means of communication. You could put the label on an invitation letter, the guest management tool, intranet, etc.
If it fits into the framework, it is also possible to hand over a personalized certificate "climate neutral journey" to the participants.
As an environmentally conscious event agency, we attach great importance to implementing all events in the context of our social responsibility in the most climate-friendly way possible.
