Deutsche Messe – 5G SMART VENUE 

Deutsche Messe celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2022

Back when Deutsche Messe was founded in Hannover in 1947, soon after the end of World War Two, nobody could predict just how successful its maiden event would be, right from the start. When the gates closed on the 21-day Export Fair, it had generated as many as 1,934 export contracts, worth a total of $31.6m. Since then the company has brought together millions of people at events around the globe, thus paving the way for international business. Its service-driven approach is highly valued by guest event organisers, partners, exhibitors and visitors alike.

Deutsche Messe today -  A 5G SMART VENUE with endless possibilities

The venue has 392,453sqm indoor space, 58,000sqm open-air space, ready-to-play digital and hybrid locations, pre-built, sustainable and ready-to-use event space, conference facilities - all set within a total fenced area of 1.4m sqm – which makes it the biggest multifunctional 5G SMART VENUE in the world.
