Germany is one of the world’s largest exporters. Trade shows in Germany and abroad bring together many German firms and their international business partners. Even in this age of ever greater digitisation, trade shows remain an indispensible forum: a forum for companies to build new contacts and step up existing ones. A forum for presenting ideas and innovations, and for advertising products. This applies to young self-employed people and large established companies alike.

The Federal Government can rely on trusted cooperation with its partners from industry. This particularly applies to the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry.
The ‘Trade Fairs International’ magazine also has a very important role to play. For more than 20 years now, it has been delivering full and well-informed news about international trade shows and exhibitions.
May the next 20 years and beyond be just as successful!
