Wrap up & Get together

Conference venue

The SPAICER Symposium will take place in the Spreespeicher, a historic grain warehouse at Berlin’s Osthafen with a wonderful view of the Oberbaumbrücke. In the middle of the media quarter of the trendy scene district Friedrichshain, not far from MTV, Universal Music and the Mercedes-Benz Arena and East Side Gallery, the Spreespeicher is a unique place for inspiring events. The unmistakable architecture of the listed warehouse looks back on a history of over 100 years and gives the building an individual face.

The Spreespeicher is easy to reach from the A10 motorway ring road, as well as with S-Bahn and U-Bahn stops nearby, Ostkreuz station and only a few minutes from Ostbahnhof with ICE connection. The Spreespeicher can also be easily reached by water. There are numerous access possibilities along the Spree. Numerous hotels are located in the direct vicinity of the event location.
