Join us in Hamburg, Germany from June 1-5, 2019 for the Rotary International Convention!
There is no experience for a Rotarian quite like an International Convention.  Meet old friends and make new ones from around the world.  Hear great speakers and enjoy fabulous entertainment. Participate in the many breakout sessions on topics of interest to you.  Stroll through the House of Friendship.  Enjoy the many restaurants and tourism opportunities that Hamburg has to offer.


The multi-facetted port city invites you to the Rotary International Convention from June 1st through June 5th, 2019. Use this opportunity to get to know Rotarians from around Germany, Europe and the world! Help shape the future of Rotary and become inspired during the conference.

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg has a long and rich Rotary tradition: the first German Rotary club was founded in Hamburg in 1927. The "Gateway to the World", tradition meets modernity, the Elbe Philharmonic Hall – all this is Hamburg. And so much more. Visit us in 2019 and we can explore this global city together.

We look forward to seeing you!
