Join us for the official Preconvention Welcome Party in Hamburg's Chamber of Commerce, an historic building located in the heart of the city. Make new friends from around the world and enjoy an evening that is filled with music, drinks, culinary experiences and more! Moin and welcome to Hamburg!
A Hanseatic reception
You can look forward to inspiring words of welcome and a brief stage program throughout the evening. Be ready for a great party.
The impressive halls of the Chamber of Commerce are adorned with columns, arcades and galleries, and, in the midst of classical architectural history, offer the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in an atmospheric celebratory evening after the official welcome reception.
All nations are invited to present their country or region through culinary specialities. Expect the Hamburg hosts to showcase food such as Helbing, Labskaus, Franzbrötchen or similar goodies. Let yourself be surprised by what the world brings and enjoy the diverse culinary treats!
Food trucks and free drinks
Fancy food trucks await the guests in the breathtaking inner courtyard of the Chamber of Commerce. With your ticket you will receive cider and beer at the bars for free throughout the entire evening.
The evening will be accompanied by a varied musical program, ranging from hit DJs to live bands! Bring your dancing shoes!
Information subject to change.
For guys we recommend a dark suit with or without a tie.
For women we recommend short party dresses. When in doubt, wear a little black dress and dress it up with fun jewelry—or, if you'd rather wear color, opt for something bright and feminine. Of course long dresses will work too, as long as you can dance in them!
