Update 16.09.2020: Currently valid hygiene concept of MESSE ESSEN

Here you find the guide hygiene concept for visitors


Messe Essen would like to make a responsible contribution to a slower spread of the novel Corona virus. For this reason, we have decided to limit the number of employees working directly at and on the exhibition grounds to a core team for the time being. We therefore ask for your understanding that there may be delays in answering telephone or written enquiries. We will deal with all enquiries as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding and stay healthy!

One location - countless possibilities

With roundabout 55 trade fairs and exhibitions, including ten leading trade fairs, the Essen exhibition centre is among the top ten exhibition locations in Germany. An appealing mix of international, national and regional professional and consumer trade fairs attracts around 1.5 million visitors annually. MESSE ESSEN offers exhibitors the ideal environment to present their company and to establish important contacts with experts, key customers and opinion leaders.

Directly connected to the exhibition centre, the Congress Center Essen expands the event portfolio with symposiums, conferences and diverse corporate events. In addition to our flexible spatial concepts, event planners can also take advantage of the organizing expertise of our experienced team. The Grugahalle rounds out the remarkable diversity of event options in Essen. Shows with international stars, major sporting events and prominent concerts take place here.

With this extraordinary range of events and spatial flexibility, the Essen location sets the standard for event concepts.


Fairs, congresses, conferences and events – benefit from our synergies!
