The next generation exhibition centre

The modernisation that started in May 2016 is focused on investment in the future viability of MESSE ESSEN and developing its location advantages.

With clear, functional architecture, the Essen exhibition centre will be one of the most technically modern exhibition centres in Germany. The architectural redesign is largely dominated by two characteristics: Openness and light.

The new design connects the city of Essen with the exhibition centre and brings urban flair and brightness into the entrance area. The exhibition grounds, the conference rooms of the CCE and the Grugahalle will show exhibitors and visitors that they will be able to meet the growing challenges of the market with a uniformly high level of technical expertise and an architecturally clear design.
