Meet Arena Berlin – Home to Xpomet 2019!
Every great conference needs a great venue, and here at Xpomet, we’ve managed to unearth one of the very best in the great city of Berlin.
Imagine: you’ve bought your Xpomet 2019 ticket (What? You haven’t? why not? OK, get one here now and then come back!), you’ve booked your flights and hotel and now, all you need to know is where to go on the day.
Arena Berlin is located on the banks of the Spree, right on the cusp of where East met West. No, really – the train station to the south, Treptower Park, was in the DDR, while the station to the north, Schlesisches Tor, was in the West. The physical wall was just outside of Arena, literally 50m away.
Back then, it was a pretty depressing place to be, but now, it is much changed. The whole area is packed with great restaurants, bars, nightclubs and cultural centres: the world famous nightclubs of Club der Visionäre, Chalet and Watergate are within five minutes walk, while award-winning eateries such as Freischwimmer and Burgermeister – regularly cited as the best burger in the city – are just as close.
Arena itself is the perfect venue for a conference like ours: it is 20,000 square metres in size, with an industrial aesthetic and all possible modern amenities. Built in the 1920s, it retains a lot of the charm of that famous period in the history of Berlin, while also boasting everything that a forward-thinking conference such as ours could ever need.
It hosts trade fairs, musical festivals and cultural events all year round and is located easily for public transport access. There is a U-Bahn station to the north, an S-Bahn ring line station to the south and a bus stop right outside that connects them both.
We couldn’t ask for a better place to host Xpomet 2019!
