Messe Frankfurt is the world’s largest trade fair, congress and event organiser with its own exhibition grounds. The Group employs more than 2,500 people at around 30 locations around the globe.
With boundless passion and a wealth of experience, we have been active in the international trade fair business, both in Frankfurt and worldwide, for some 800 years. From automotive to logistics, from textiles to music, from energy efficiency to security, from homes to beauty – Messe Frankfurt’s programme of trade fairs, congresses and other events is extremely comprehensive. And the quality of our events meets the very highest standards.
The right people, the right encounters at the right place – this is the basis on which we design our events. We look forward to having you on board as a guest, customer and partner.
In 2016, Messe Frankfurt organised no fewer than 417 trade fairs, congresses and other events for its customers. These events are “touchpoints” for the sectors, bringing together supply and demand, business partners and customers, and trends and markets. The Annual Report gives insight into our diverse event portfolio, which provides each product with a tailor-made presentation platform for an international audience. This means that Messe Frankfurt’s worldwide events are a constant indicator for innovations stemming from the realms of business, science, technology and design.
