New Exhibition and Convention Hall Cologne Trade Fair
Client: Koelnmesse GmbH, Cologne
1st prize, Competition 2015/2016
under construction, completion 2024
At the year 2016, JSWD was awarded to upgrade the inner city Exhibition and Convention Center of Cologne. The cubature of the Confex® fits harmoniously into the ensemble of existing trade fair buildings and, together with the new Hall 1 (also by JSWD), forms the structural conclusion of the inner-city trade fair area towards the Rhine Park to the west.
The multifunctional new building is designed for events with up to 5,500 participants. A variable connection with other exhibition halls, especially with the neighboring Hall 1, enables a completely new spectrum of event formats for trade fairs, congresses and events. This is also supported by the offer of conference rooms of different sizes.
The Confex® can also be operated self-sufficiently and accessed directly via the new west entrance.
