Our tradition and our vision are the foundations for what could be called a global artisan workshop. Our successful trade fairs are the result of careful craftsmanship and the outstanding dedication of our employees. More than 1,600 experts around the world make each of our trade fairs a one-of-a-kind event. All members of our team contribute their own valuable expertise. At each venue, the event is carefully planned, prepared and implemented. As a global artisan workshop, Messe Frankfurt unites the highest quality with proximity and international orientation – at every trade fair, be it with one of our 28 global subsidiaries, over 50 international Sales Partners or at our headquarters in Frankfurt.
Our organisation exemplifies internationalism. Over the course of the year, events “made by Messe Frankfurt” take place in more than 30 locations. In 2010 alone, we organised a total of 87 trade fairs, of which 51 were held outside Germany.
Our company is publicly owned, with the City of Frankfurt holding 60 percent and the State of Hesse 40 percent. Frankfurt am Main has always been and will continue to be our home. This is where 36 trade fairs were held in 2010 with more than 42,300 exhibitors and around 1.47 million visitors – in addition to 93 congresses and conventions with 110,000 participants. Our international flagship fairs left their mark on markets and trends.
In the Consume & Leisure segment, Ambiente, Beautyworld, Christmasworld and Paperworld are the most important meeting places for the consumer goods sector. In the realm of Textiles & Textile Technology, Heimtextil, Techtextil and Texcare are international highlights for the textile industry. Our industry classics and giants also include a number of major technology events within the Technology & Production and Mobility & Infrastructure segments, from Automechanika for the automotive sector to Light+Building, IFFA, ISH, Musikmesse and Prolight+Sound for other fields.
With all of these trade fairs, we offer individual coverage of the global markets of each industry. We provide trade fair visitors with a transparent overview of the current range of products and services available as well as developments within their sector.
Our global reputation as experienced hosts has spread. Internationally famous events such as the IAA motor show, the Frankfurt Book Fair and Achema, the world’s largest chemistry trade fair, feel at home with us and value our hospitality.
