The EMECA Members met at the premises of MCH in Basel for its spring General Assembly. “We see a very positive trend with a strong performance of nearly all EMECA members in 2022 and 2023”, explains Roland Bleinroth, EMECA president.
All venues are back on track in terms of exhibitions and events reaching
2019 levels or better, with just a few not yet fully recovered, mainly due to a
later reopening date”, says Bleinroth.
Multiple challenges remain in the fields of energy and service prices, staff shortage, talent attraction and staff retention. At the same time, all Members improve their offerings with more and better services and numerous trade show innovations. Subsequently, the number of new shows launched and planned is impressive, in all sectors, own and guest shows as well as B2B and B2C events. The activity worldwide has picked up again, too, especially in Asia after its only recent opening. Chinese exhibitors and visitors start coming back to Europe, an important factor for many exhibitions. Everywhere, investments are launched again, especially into sustainable energy supply and a more sustainable organisation of events.
EMECA has awarded Raccoon Media Group (UK) the “BELA 2023” – Best Exhibition Launch Award – for its outstanding achievement with the National Outdoor Expo 2022 held at NEC Birmingham.

The interactive activities implemented both inside the halls and outdoor went well beyond other similar industry events. We also appreciated the comprehensive sustainability measures, carbon footprint measuring and ambitious goal to be a net zero carbon event in 2025. The launch also is a role model for organiser-venue collaboration, we congratulate Raccoon Media Group as well as the NEC Birmingham on the success achieved.” The BELA Award was created on the occasion of EMECA’s 30th Anniversary last year.
In order to master the transition to carbon neutral and finally to net zero
carbon events, EMECA is supporting the global Net Zero Carbon Events initiative
as a Gold Sponsor. “It is crucial to work in a collaborative way within the
entire exhibition and events industry on minimising our activity’s impact on
climate change. If we move forward in a coherent way we can strengthen our role
model position: exhibitions are a crucial part of the solution as we provide
the meeting and market places to work on solutions to the climate crisis”,
emphasises Roland Bleinroth.

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.
