DRESDEN, Germany - Top venue for meetings and conferences: With its 14 conference rooms for up to 700 participants and its first class service, Hilton Dresden is the first choice for event organisers in the state capital of Saxony. The conference area of the hotel, which is located directly between the Elbe and the Frauenkirche church, received a further upgrade in the last months. In the first phase in Q1/2011 the Hilton Meetings area was upgraded. In a second phase (completed this week/end of September 2011), the Congress Centre and Foyer were given a facelift. The modernisation project cost approx. 700,000 Euro.

Developed by the renowned architects K2 of Aachen in close accord with the hotel, the modernisation project is being carried out by Hagenauer hotel concept. All the rooms are being updated to meet the high qualitative standards of the award winning meetings by Hilton, which set benchmarks worldwide with excellent service and first class facilities. The rooms are therefore for example equipped with minibars and conference tables with integrated LAN ports; state-of-the-art 60-inch flatscreens are also available for professional presentations.

The ambience is also more contemporary: new carpets in warm red and beige tones, matching wallpapers, accent walls and completely new entrance areas in warm dark brown wood tones create a pleasing atmosphere for work and breaks. As an additional highlight, the foyer of the Congress Centre was extended and opened up to encompass a view of the world-famous historic mural built up of more than 25.000 tiles of MEISSEN porcellain, called the Fürstenzug (Procession of the Princes). Non-stop digital signage in the events area and in all public areas rounds off the upgrade.
