The Kongresshaus at the lake of Zurich and the Tonhalle are being rebuilt since summer 2017 for approximately 3 years as a result of a long overdue renovation. From 2017 to 2020, the Tonhalle Orchestra will move to the MAAG area in the newly built temporary concert hall. For this the Tonhalle company has rented the MAAG EventHall and the old Härterei club. This means that as of 1.1.2017 MAAG Music & Arts AG does not have a large hall for its various public and corporate events as well as for their own concerts. In order to ensure that this business area does not have to be given up and existing customers can be saved, the city of Zurich actively sought an alternative replacement location. Furthermore, the need for an event infrastructure in the city of Zurich is further strengthened by the simultaneous conversion of the Kongresshaus.
Hall 622 contributes to the fact that the existing events do not leave the city of Zurich during the partial occupancy of the Maag-Halle by the Tonhalle and the conversion of the Kongresshaus. It offers a multifunctional and provisional event location (without club and fixed restaurant), which is aimed at corporate events such as general meetings, conferences and gala dinners as well as public events such as trade fairs, exhibitions and even concerts. In order to minimize the noise pollution for the surrounding residential area, the acoustic measures were given full attention. The rental business and the existing know-how of MAAG could be taken over 1 : 1 for this new hall.
Hall 622 is the event location for all types of events and events. The industrial charm remains recognizable and a clearly positioned atmosphere (industrial charm) is created which distinguishes itself from hotel congress infrastructures and newly built venues such as the Umweltarena in Spreitenbach and Eventpark Stettbach (since autumn 2016).
In this industrial ambience and established location for events in Zurich, up to 3500 guests can attend and enjoy concerts and events.
