New Frankfurt Congress Ambassadors named

For the eighth year in succession, the City of Frankfurt, Messe Frankfurt and the Chamber of Industry and Commerce have honoured the commitment of leading local figures who have engaged their prestige and dedicated their time to the cause of bringing conventions and events to Frankfurt and to the locations of Messe Frankfurt.

Halle 12

Hall 12 officially opened

The new Hall 12 was officially opened at a ceremony attended by some 2,000 invited guests from the realms of politics, business and media. It was constructed over a two-year period and is the cornerstone of the open area development in the western section of the exhibition grounds.

Hall 12 – vision becomes reality

Aesthetics combined with functionality – that was our vision for the new Hall 12. Now, affording over 33,600 square metres of event space, that vision has become reality. To mark the official opening, the installation Flying to Peace by Munich designer Ingo Maurer was set in motion.
