Welcome to COP 9

COP 9 - Meeting Venue

The ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 9) will be held in the area consisting of the Hotel Maritim (the main conference site) and those government buildings in close vicinity, including those of the Ministries for Environment, Transport, Research and Health.

The Hotel Maritim and the central plaza - Robert-Schuman-Platz - are connected by an axis/avenue which is part of the exhibition “Plaza of Diversity”. A central stage for public events will be set up in Robert-Schuman-Platz.

The exhibition “Plaza of Diversity” is a platform for a wide range of events and activities accompanying the conference. It will be found between the Hotel Maritim Conference Centre and Robert-Schuman-Platz and in the green spaces between and around the neighbouring government buildings.

The High-Level Segment will take place mainly at the World Conference Center Bonn (WCCB), former seat of the German Parliament, close to the UN Campus. This is approximately a 15 minute drive from main conference site.
