Messe Berlin


Messe Berlin – hosting the world for over 200 years

Here on the exhibition grounds in the heart of the German capital, Messe Berlin hosts trade fairs, congresses, and events. Taking as our slogan ’Hosting the World’, each year we welcome millions of visitors, exhibitors, and organizers from around the world to our wide-ranging trade fair and event venues.

Berlin has been a trade fair venue for over 200 years, and, for many decades, one of the most important worldwide. As a state-owned enterprise, every year Messe Berlin conceives, markets and organizes hundreds of events. They include our leading international trade fairs, Fruit Logistica, InnoTrans, ITB and Grüne Woche. Each year, millions of visitors, exhibitors and organizers come to the Berlin Expo Center from all over the world. Our venue provides them with a platform to display and discover new products and services, establish new business leads and exchange knowledge.

Our outstanding venues are ideal for staging international trade fairs, congresses, and events. With 27 trade fair/event halls and additional multi-purpose venues to choose from, every event becomes an experience in itself.

Hosting the World

Messe Berlin aspires to be the perfect host at every event. This approach is reflected in the company’s slogan ‘Messe Berlin – Hosting the World’. The Messe Berlin Group has a professional team of 900 employees who offer a full range of one-stop services surrounding trade fairs and events. They are augmented by an international network of foreign representatives in over 160 countries – a direct link to the German capital for exhibitors and visitors from around the world.

Our trade fair portfolio

From leading international trade fairs to popular public fairs and target group-specific B2B events: Messe Berlin offers a broad portfolio of its own events. Our formats are as diverse as the target groups they address. But they all have one thing in common: our events bring people together.
