Information Platform About the Modernisation

Until the end of the first construction phase from May 2016 to autumn 2017, MESSE ESSEN will be providing information on the details of the modernisation in a dedicated Info Pavilion.

Those who are interested can find information about the individual development phases in the Info Pavilion, covering around 55 m², and take a virtual tour to experience the new exhibition grounds.

Opening hours

The Info Pavillon is opened on demand.


The Pavilion is located in the P1 car park directly to the right of the entrance.

The heart of the pavilion is a 3D video animation which guides visitors through the new foyer, the new conference area, the new Hall 6 and the new VIP Lounge.

In addition, an illustrated timeline from the founding of the fair company in 1913 to the completion of the modernisation in 2019 is showing important stages in the history of the MESSE ESSEN.
