With our events we meet highest quality standards and create global interfaces between the industry, commerce, politics, services and consumer goods sectors.
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.
* preliminary figures 2022
Trade fairs, congresses and events are Messe Frankfurt's core business, both as an organiser in Germany and abroad and as a host. In financial year 2021, Messe Frankfurt had to contend with the effects of the pandemic for the second time. Once again, this severely disrupted the Group’s growth, which had been stable up to 2019. Owing to the global coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing travel restrictions and quarantine regulations, physical events around the world were cancelled or restricted locally. Events under the Messe Frankfurt umbrella had to be cancelled or postponed. In the Annual Report, you will find Messe Frankfurt's key economic figures for the 2021 financial year.
