Similar to previous UNFCCC sessions, the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn (COP 23, 6 – 17 November) offers the possibility for Parties and admitted observer organizations to apply for delegation offices (located in the “Bula Zone” of the official conference venue) and pavilions (located in the “Bonn Zone” of the official conference venue) on a commercial basis.

Requests for renting space on a commercial basis have to be made through the website of the General Contractor for COP 23 by 9 June 2017, using the log-in details sent to you. All those without log-in details may request them by sending an email to the COP 23 Commercial Services Team at mail@cop23-service.de.

Additional details are included in this information note to Parties.

COP 23 will host many side events and exhibits by Parties (governments), non-Party stakeholders and the UNFCCC secretariat. These events and exhibits will take place in the “Bonn Zone”, making it a major hub for showcasing climate action, knowledge-sharing, capacity-building and networking.

As per past practice, it is planned that side events will be clustered around major themes, to be announced at a later stage, with specific days being dedicated to different clusters.

For more information on the application procedures for the different types of activity inside the official conference venue, please refer to the table below. Kindly note that the availability of space for side events and exhibits for entities without observer status in the UNFCCC process will be announced at a later stage. For any activity outside the official conference venue, please contact the City of Bonn(contact details will be made available in due course).
