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.

The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy has developed a number of different instruments to support trade shows:
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.

UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, has released the latest edition of its flagship Global Barometer research, which takes the pulse of the industry.

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.
Most exhibitors want to attract as much traffic as possible. The largest continuous space of an exhibition stand can be actively used for this purpose: A photorealistic floor is a design option that fulfils several functions at once.
Planners of corporate events always need to be up-to-date. Planning and implementing, and hence the job of an organiser, are constantly changing.
