Messe Frankfurt: Business model for global business
As a reliable partner to individual sectors, Messe Frankfurt creates innovative network platforms. Every year, we organise some 150 trade fairs in Frankfurt and at many other locations around the world. We know exactly which future trends are of burning importance to our customers and have close ties with policymakers, with social institutions of every hue and, above all, with the sectors represented at our trade fairs.
We also hire out our Frankfurt exhibition grounds to guest organisers, playing host to around 240 events of this kind every year. Be it congresses, exhibitions, concerts or other events, we can accommodate event formats of all kinds. In addition to Messe Frankfurt’s Congress Center and Kap Europa congress venues, our Festhalle is a multifunctional arena that offers organisers a historic and unique location.
Our offer is rounded off with a wide range of services, including logistics, stand construction, marketing, food services and catering, which help to bring out the best in your event. We are extending our range of analogue and digital services on an ongoing basis, investing wherever we see the best opportunity for creating value for our customers.
