The idea and foundation of Messe München arose out of the German economic miracle period in 1964. Shareholders of Messe München GmbH to this day are the Free State of Bavaria, the City of Munich, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, and the Chamber of Crafts for Munich and Upper Bavaria.

While we build on our many years of experience and tradition, we always think and act with the future in mind. Under the leadership of Klaus Dittrich, CEO of Messe München since 2010, the exhibition center is currently being completed: As of 2018, the Munich exhibition grounds will comprise 18 halls featuring total exhibition space of 200,000 m².
