Confex, the new conference and exhibition centre in Cologne - embedded in one of the most attractive inner-city exhibition grounds in the world. 
The fusion of conference and exhibition with maximum flexibility and ideal accessibility: that's what Confex stands for! Two conference levels with 22 conference rooms, a prestigious outdoor terrace and the Confexhall, which can be divided into three sections with a total capacity of 4,300 people, are available for congresses, general meetings, corporate events, trade fairs or party conferences. The surrounding entrances to the Confexhall are directly connected to the light-flooded foyer, which offers space for receptions, breaks and staged side events and leads directly onto the open-air plaza.
The Confex is easily accessible by all means of transport and is ideally connected to a large motorway network, the ICE train station and many multi-storey car parks are within walking distance. Numerous hotels are located in the immediate vicinity.
The building also scores points with its scalable size, as it is integrated into one of the world's largest exhibition centres. This means that the Confex can be expanded at any time to include additional rooms, halls and areas - for maximum flexibility in event planning in the centre of Cologne.
Modern trade fair and congress technology in all rooms is complemented by the professional expertise of the staff for event formats of all kinds. The Confex creates the best conditions for bringing industries, people and markets together.
