THE BLUE – Tomorrow’s Green

THE BLUE develops innovative event formats on current topics with experts from the fields of business, politics, technology and the environment.

With now five independent formats and several thousand visitors since its launch at the global wind fair WindEnergy Hamburg 2014, THE BLUE accompanies current topics from the fields of business, politics and technology for renewable energies. The unique thing about the format is its independence.



Sonnendeck St. Pauli
The Beach Club Sonnendeck St. Pauli is the perfect venue for THE BLUE BEACH. Located directly on Hamburg’s LandungsbrĂĽcken, with a view of the Elbe, the Elbphilharmonie concert hall and the wind turbines of the city of Hamburg, the perfect networking atmosphere is created as soon as you enter. Hamburg’s first outdoor address has a capacity of up to 800 guests on 980 m2. Sustainability was taken into account when furnishing the venue – “second use” takes centre stage here, without compromising on an elegant and stylish ambience. Solar panels on the roof of the newly designed beach club convert the Hamburg sun into energy. Large umbrellas preserve the unique view and special atmosphere in typical Hamburg weather.
