Messe Frankfurt – the marketing and service partner for trade fairs, congresses and other events
As a reliable partner to individual sectors, Messe Frankfurt creates innovative network platforms. Every year, we organise some 150 trade fairs in Frankfurt and at many other locations around the world. In 2019, these were joined by around 270 congresses, conferences and other events. This diversity helps to come up with new, clearly defined solutions for the various questions facing business and society today – from artificial intelligence, renewable energy and mobility concepts to new forms of learning, intelligent textiles, personalisation and Smart Cities.
We know which future trends are currently of great importance to our customers and have close ties with policymakers, with social institutions of every hue and, above all, with the sectors represented at our trade fairs.
