New Meeting Dimensions: Makeover for the CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf
The CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf is getting a makeover. By 2019 it will have expanded its capacity and enhanced its visitor amenities. Trade Fair Hall 1, which is immediately adjacent, is to be fully rebuilt, while the CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf will be completely refurbished.
The new hall will have an area of 12,000 square metres, with capacity for around 10,000 people in row seating. Twelve conference rooms will be created on the same level as the event floor of the CCD Congress Center Düsseldorf with which they will be connected by a glass passageway. The 2,100-square-metre foyer can also be used as an event space. The entrance area features extensive glazing and provides access both to the trade fair grounds and the conference area.
One of the striking architectural features of the new-build project is the projecting roof made of translucent fibreglass fabric; 20 metres high, it has an area of 7,800 square metres. 300 additional parking slots will be created in the underground garage, as well as 160 parking spaces above ground. Two direct pedestrian overpasses will give visitors access to the greenery of the neighbouring North Park.
