CMF – Congress Center Messe Frankfurt

Welcome to the CMF, the largest and most versatile conference location in Frankfurt. Capable of accommodating up to 3,400 guests, it is linked directly to all the exhibition halls on the fairground.


Modern, open, bright, practically futuristic: the Congress Center Messe Frankfurt has been completely revamped in 2020. Every aspect of the Congress Center Messe Frankfurt's design has been carefully thought through and its four levels provide plenty of space for successful business events. Among the facilities available are eight comfortable conference and meeting rooms, four offices and a VIP lounge.

The versatile Harmonie hall  

Measuring 1,800 square metres, the Harmonie hall is the multifunctional heart of the Congress Center in Frankfurt and can adapt to suit all your plans: an auditorium for some 2,200 participants, an accompanying exhibition or a show with a lavish banquet? Configure the hall the way you need it – it is even possible to combine an auditorium with an exhibition: the Harmonie hall fits the bill here with its mobile floor, flexible partitioning and state-of-the-art technology. Harmonie Hall also offers direct access to the pillar-free Hall 5.1. Individual event design at its best!

Flexibly combinable and easy to reach

Congress Center Messe Frankfurt not only offers ample space but also more combination options than any other venue. Thanks to the Via Mobile covered moving walkway, it is connected directly to all halls in the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. By combining the Congress Center with the Forum or the New Hall 5, it is possible to bring to life a wide range of concepts that will make your event unique: a congress with accompanying exhibition, additional breakouts or an unforgettable evening event with a special ambience.

As well as this, Congress Center’s reachability is second to none. Located at the heart of Frankfurt with ideal connections to hotels, public transport and parking spaces, and just a ten-minute walk from the Central Station – what better venue for your event? Right next door in the same building complex is the Maritim Hotel Frankfurt with eight hotel floors and 543 rooms.

New registration counter singled out for the German Design Award 2021

Congress Center Empfangscounter

As soon as you enter the Congress Center, prepare to be amazed: the new, round registration counter – which looks like it is suspended in mid-air – is modern, highly communicative and almost futuristic in its design. We are especially proud that it has received a German Design Award “Special Mention” in the Excellent Product Design (Office Furniture) category right off the bat.

The registration counter serves as a central communication hub in the main foyer, facilitating personal interaction in every direction. There are screens that can be customised for individual events, while spotlights and a ring of lights illuminate no fewer than ten workstations.
