Cologne is number one exhibition centre for about 25 sectors. Every year around 80 trade fairs, guest and special events contribute to making Koelnmesse one of the world‘s leading trade-fair companies. About 3 million visitors from 210 countries and over 50,000 companies from 128 countries participate regularly in the organiser’s events.

Implementing the future-focussed cluster „Digital Media, Entertainment and Mobility“, Koelnmesse is expanding its international areas of competence. This complements its strategic cornerstones of „Global Competence in Food and FoodTec“ and „Global Competence in Furniture, Interiors and Design“ and sharpens  Koelnmesse’s business profile.

Efficient, flexible and attractive: Funded to the tune of 600 million euros, the Koelnmesse 3.0 investment programme is future-proofing the world’s sixth-largest exhibition centre and ensuring it meets the demands of tomorrow’s trade fair business. The programme includes modernisations as well as new buildings. From 2021 onwards, the Confex®, for example, will provide a modern event space with a capacity of 5,000 persons or more. On completion, it will close a gap that has traditionally existed in the region’s congress venue offering.
