One note on our main meeting location: Most of the General Council will take place at the “Leipziger Messe.” In German, “Messe” means conference grounds (sometimes translated as “fairgrounds”), but we refer to it simply as the “Messe” throughout this document. At the Messe itself, the Council will occupy two buildings: the Congress Center Leipzig (CCL) and Hall 2. The CCL contains the registration desk, offices and smaller meeting rooms while Hall 2 has the plenary hall, the dining room and the display area.
