For business customers

Centrally located & flexible.
RuhrCongress Bochum.

A congress and event center that combines all the advantages of its location: Right in the middle of Europe's largest metro area, the Ruhr area. Right next to one of the most important traffic routes in Germany, the A40 motorway. Ideally accessible by bus, train and plane. At the RuhrCongress Bochum a wide range of trade fairs, conferences and congresses as well as concerts, events and galas can be arranged flexibly and in line with the very latest state of the art technology.

In order to live up to the idea of a building with short distances, the Renaissance Bochum Hotel was integrated into the concept. All barrier-free of course. Whether for 20 or 5,000 guests, we will tailor your event so that it precisely fits in with your concept. We would be pleased to contribute our own ideas and experience in order to create optimal conditions for you in up to 7,500 square metres. Our rooms are fully air-conditioned, modern, and equipped with user-friendly equipment. Wi-Fii is available as a matter of course, as is our flexible, highly trained staff. Event service for us means being there for you as a competent contact at all times. And last but not least, we can also ensure that our culinary catering delights are the right choice for you.

Green events

At the RuhrCongress Bochum, we attach great importance to the sustainable use of all available resources. This starts with small things such as the use of recycled paper and ballpoint pens made from renewable raw materials and extends to the "green" transportation of your guests with 100 % green electricity.

This sustainable economic approach is not only limited to the use of resources and the development of appropriate processes and strategies in the area of ecological and economic processes, but also to social aspects. In this context, we have been committed to the sustainability code of the German event industry (“fairpflichtet”) since 2012 and have committed ourselves to its principles and guidelines.

Supporting programme

Far more than "just" history and stories of coal and steel.


Bochum, as a metropolis in the heart of Europe, is just as important as it is vibrant:

Cultural center, university town, business and science hub.

Education and research is performed at 15 research institutes and six universities, including the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany's largest campus university.

More than twelve museums, the renowned Schauspielhaus theater and numerous cultural events inspire visitors to Bochum. The Bochum Symphony Orchestra, one of the country's top orchestras, "sets the tone". Since 1986, Europe's largest music event has been taking place in the city: the rock festival "Bochum Total". Companies such as Deutsche Telekom, ThyssenKrupp, VONOVIA, Deutsche BP and GEA make use of the metropolis' many locational advantages right in the middle of the district.

Tourists and residents alike enjoy relaxing "Ruhr hours" around 14 parks and lakes, or the hustle and bustle in the 70 restaurants, nine discotheques, and the cafés and pubs of the legendary "Bermuda Triangle". In short: The versatile flair, the beautiful corners of the town and the no less attractive edges make Bochum special - and especially worth seeing!

In terms of infrastructure, Bochum and thus the RuhrCongress Bochum, is optimally connected to road, rail and air networks:

  • Central ICE train station
  • Good connections to Dortmund and Düsseldorf airports
  • Dense motorway network
