Moin, Moin, as the people of Hamburg say to greet each other.

The 2019 RI Convention is in Hamburg, Germany, June 1-5, 2019. The Hamburg Messe is the site of the convention’s general sessions, breakout sessions, and the House of Friendship. When your hotel, please note that there are no shuttles.  New this year, Rotary will provide every convention attendee with complimentary access to Hamburg’s public transportation network. The Hamburger Verkehrsverbund (HVV) has an extensive bus, rail, and ferry system, making it easy to travel throughout Hamburg. To get to the Hamburg Messe, the convention venue, take the U3 train to Sternschanze station or the U2 train to Messehallen station.
