As a city fair in the heart of Europe, the venue occupies the third-largest exhibition center in Germany and, with nearly 400,000m2 of indoor and outdoor space, is among the top ten in the world. With more than one million inhabitants, Cologne is the fourth largest city in Germany and is one of the most important and popular tourist destinations in Europe.

The time and place will be just right for another major event of our industry. Be part of it and celebrate together with us in the circle of our worldwide trade fair family. We cannot wait to welcome you in Cologne.”

The Future of Exhibitions, Congresses and Events
In the event world, it’s simply part of life if things don’t work out as planned.
Networking typically happens at real, in-person events. But it’s also possible to do it online; it just works a little differently. There are various options available to organisers.
New products and a well-conceived stand design are not the only drivers for a successful presence. Many other factors are also important, but trade fair planners often lose sight of them.
Trade fairs and trade fair companies need to constantly further develop, become more agile and flexible and offer services all year round. New, digital offerings are very important here. With its TrustedTargeting technology, Messe München offers its customers access to leading business-to-business decision-makers on the Internet.
