Messe Düsseldorf – a pioneer in digitalisation and sustainability

Messe Düsseldorf offers much more than an excellent venue with 18 state-of-the-art ground-level halls from 4,000 sqm to 25,000 sqm (altogether about 262,000 sqm gross covered space plus about 43,000 sqm outdoor space). With approximately 39,000 companies in the immediate neighborhood, some 100,000 companies in the economic catchment area, just under 12 million people living within a one- hour-drive and all major European cities only a one-hour-flight away, Messe Düsseldorf is perfectly located at one of the economically strongest and most charming destinations in the heart of Europe.


As a matter of fact, Düsseldorf has repeatedly been voted one of the cities with the best quality of life worldwide. It is the combination of down-to-earth Rhenish ‘savoir vivre’ and sophisticated elegance that makes Düsseldorf, the capital of the federal state North Rhine-Westphalia and home to some 600,000 inhabitants, such a popular place.

While very cosmopolitan, Düsseldorf at the same time is quite rightly called a 10-minute-city: the airport, the main railway station and the city centre are all only minutes away from each other and from Messe Düsseldorf, which has its own motorway exit and tram stop.

Messe Düsseldorf’s infrastructure can cope with events of literally any shape or size and thus meet all kinds of requirements. At Messe Düsseldorf, organisers who want to realise their own trade show concepts are cordially welcome – and will always be professionally and passionately assisted. They can also benefit from synergies from 22 number one trade shows in five areas of expertise (machinery, plants & equipment, trade & services, medicine & healthcare, lifestyle & beauty and leisure) as well as some 2,500 conventions and corporate events held every year.

For regional start-up events, modern combinations of expo and conference or exclusive in-house trade shows, Messe Düsseldorf also develops a tailor-made solution for each organiser with professional know-how, perfect service, individual support – and a lot of enthusiasm. Organisers, exhibitors and visitors alike will therefore find everything just how they want it.

Thanks to the close co-operation with reliable local partners such as the Düsseldorf Office of Economic Development and a well-established international network, Messe Düsseldorf gladly ‚transports‘ trade shows to the city of Düsseldorf – or to 140 countries worldwide.

It goes without saying that – especially on account of the Covid-19 pandemic – for Messe Düsseldorf it is of the highest importance to offer all prerequisites for safe and successful trade shows. All required health precautions, hygiene measures and social distancing rules are strictly observed and constantly adapted to future developments and changing legal requirements.

Due to high-performance air handling systems across the entire venue, the volume of fresh air constantly supplied to Messe Düsseldorf’s large halls and entrance areas by far exceeds the recommended air quality corresponding to the outside air.

At Messe Düsseldorf, the continuous improvement of the venue is taken very seriously. Not only in terms of logistics and services, but also when it comes to regularly optimising existing or building new halls. So Messe Düsseldorf’s new multi-functional hall No 1 and the adjacent completely glass-enclosed new South Entrance meet the latest standards in energy and resource efficiency – from the lighting, heating and ventilation systems to a demand-controlled compressed air system.

Messe Düsseldorf has been successfully organising trade shows for people and with people in Düsseldorf and all over the world for more than 70 years with great passion. At the same time, operating both nationally and internationally, Messe Düsseldorf is well aware of the effects of the company’s entrepreneurial activities and ecological responsibilities, which is why Messe Düsseldorf has decided to become one of the pioneers in terms of digitalisation and sustainability.
