Germany's Best Hotel-Event Location: Hotel Atlantic Kempinski Hamburg

Berlin / Hamburg, 28 September 2015. The leading online platform for hotel and event locations locationportale GmbH has chosen the Hotel Atlantic Kempinski Hamburg as the winner in the category for the Best Hotel-Event Venue. locationportale GmbH has awarded this prize for the sixth time. With over 500 guests, the award ceremony took place in Berlin on 28 September 2015. Overall, 450 candidates competed in eight different categories hoping for the top prize. The Hotel Atlantic Kempinski competed in the category "Best Hotel-Event Venue" and was up against other hotels including Stue in Berlin, the Egerner Alm in Rottach-Egern and the Villa Kennedy, Rocco Forte in Frankfurt am Main.

The Hotel Atlantic went to work with the initial request from the jury, investing time and showing creativity. The "White Castle on the Alster" then wowed with its flexible use of space, the elegance of the banquet areas and the unique blend of modernity and history. “The team has proven that it is not only a hotel-event venue, but that it brings events to life with flair, making it something very special,” mentioned Thorsten Neumann, Managing Director of noi! Event & Catering GmbH & Co. KG, in his laudation.

Located directly on Alster Lake, just a five-minute walk from Central Station and in close proximity to the exhibition and congress centres and the international airport, the hotel has the ideal location for business and private events of all kinds. The industry-renowned seal of quality for outstanding events has strongly gained importance and has become a decision criterion for national and international event- and meeting bookers. Being awarded top prize is particularly appealing, as the planners and organizers attach even higher standards in looking for exclusive and unique features and creative and innovative concepts. The Hotel Atlantic is not only distinguished by that fact, but also continuously develops new ideas and concepts. For example, the Übersee-Club at the Binnenalster is a top event location available exclusively through the grand hotel.

Divided into eight categories – such as "Classic" and "Historic" event locations, "Special Topic Locations" and "Gastronomy Event Venues" – all other venues were evaluated in a public online poll based on a points system to qualify three or four nominees per category. All nominees then created an extensive event concept to convince the jury of uniqueness, concept, service and quality. "Together with my team we are proud to have convinced the jury of the uniqueness of our meeting and event facilities and we can henceforth officially designate ourselves as Germany's Best Hotel Event Venue," said Peter Pusnik, Managing Hotel Director of the grand hotel. Influenced by the extraordinary architecture at the time of its opening, the five-star-superior hotel offers 13 individually characteristic function rooms that can be combined for a total area of 1,260 square meters. Whether for international conferences, exclusive board meetings, representative galas or private celebrations, the hotel provides perfectly conceived delivery options, cutting-edge technology, culinary finesse, engaging service and a professional team with attention to detail to make every event a special experience, featuring a fusion of tradition and modernity.
