Organisers and partners comments

"We are very satisfied with the first edition of the Gods of Ink Tattoo Convention at the Forum of Messe Frankfurt and the great support we received from the Messe Frankfurt team. We brought the international tattoo scene to Frankfurt where we had a high influx of visitors, also from abroad - thanks to the attractive location. We are looking forward to the next convention in 2024!"

Tamara-Luisa Moreno Ruiz

"With the excellent accessibility, the international, diverse cityscape and the impressive and versatile locations of Messe Frankfurt, we were able to create the ideal setting for an exciting EHA Hybrid Congress 2023 for our 15,000+ participants. EHA2023 will remain in our very fond memories for a long time to come."

"We’ve worked with Messe Frankfurt since the very first IMEX in Frankfurt show, moving into the venue’s largest hall in 2005 as the show grew. Messe Frankfurt has been a very supportive and flexible partner along the way, working with us to regularly evolve the show to meet the needs of our global industry."

Marc Mulligan

"We were extremely satisfied with the implementation of our event at the Qualifying Draw for UEFA EURO 2024™ at the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. The sophisticated security concept and our high security requirements were implemented optimally despite parallel events taking place at the venue. We would like to express our thanks for the cooperation in a spirit of partnership, the commitment shown and the reliability of the Messe Frankfurt team."

Timo Seibert

"After the three-year break due to Corona, the Mainova Frankfurt Marathon had a great re-start this year. More than 20,000 runners were registered at the oldest German city marathon. The run into the festively illuminated Festhalle Messe Frankfurt, the open and generous design from start to finish in the city and on the exhibition grounds characterize the event, whose flair and atmosphere is simply unique. A big thank you to Messe Frankfurt for their partnership support from planning to execution.“

„Messe Frankfurt is one of the world’s largest trade show corporations. It’s an honour to continue our partnership with true experts in their field who bring invaluable knowledge and insight.“

Sustainability by Messe Frankfurt

Sustainability commitment

As the operator of one of the largest exhibition centres and a leading organiser of trade fairs, congresses and events, we want to be a driving force for climate protection and a sustainable event business. Our sustainable business practices are founded on a wide range of voluntary commitments. We were one of the first trade fair companies to decide of their own accord to introduce the environmental management system EMAS (Eco Management and Audit Scheme).
