Interested parties have time up to 31 March next year to submit their bids. Also exhibition-related uses such as offices and hotel spa, entertainment and leisure activities are possible. "We think that there are enough people are interested in that," said Monday the head of the Real Estate Fund, Holger Lippmann. Though there are many hotels in Berlin, there's a lack of of accommodation offers in direct proximity to the exhibition", says Lippmann. The only hostel in the area is currently the Ibis hotel on Messedamm in corner with Masurenallee.
