Germany, Berlin: The AXICA
Axicais Berlin's most exclusive conference and convention center. Designed by star architect Frank O. Gehry, it combines organic forms, high quality materials and surprising details, creating the perfect site for conferences, conventions, award ceremonies and galas for up to 600 persons. The Plenum, as a walk-in sculpture encapsulated within a skin of brushed stainless steel, has fascinated attendees from all over the world since its opening. However, the technical equipment, dating from 2000, had become outdated. Thanks to now having more than 3 km/1.8 miles of optical fibres fitted, bundled into 100 floor tanks distributed around the room, The Plenum is now more than capable of catering for the most diverse and exacting multi-media requirements. But topping it all has to be the two new LCD screens. The new screens are 108", which makes them the largest currently available worldwide! The conference sound system has been updated also and can now be combined with the interpreter's booth.
