A festive ceremony with around 500 invited guests from the political, economic, media and fair sectors took place at Messe Essen today in order to celebrate the conclusion of the first phase of the modernisation of the fair site right on time.

With the opening of the new glass foyer which covers an area of 2,000 m² and has directly adjoining new congress rooms, the construction project started in May 2016 is reaching its most important milestone. The first half of the new Hall 6 which covers an area of 11,000 m² and offers a direct view into the Grugapark is going into operation at the same time. The North Rhine-Westphalia Minister for Economic Affairs, Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart, personally congratulated the city and the fair company on its new architectonic landmark.
