CEPIC Congress 2014 will take place from 04 to 07 June 2014 at the Maritim ProArte Hotel, Berlin.

AT THE HEART OF THE "CITY OF CHANGE"

Berlin’s Governing Mayor, Klaus Wowereit, once said of the capital city of Germany: “Berlin is poor, but sexy”. Twenty years after the fall of the wall, poor but sexy Berlin has turned into a startup technology hub, with its low cost and buzz attracting artists, young creatives and talents from all over the world. Berlin is the on-trend creative capital of Europe.

As a congress venue, Berlin offers a number of important additional advantages on top of trendyness:
- Centrally located
- Well connected with two international airports
