Connecting Global Competence: True to this leitmotif, Messe München connects people all over the world—and has been doing so for more than five decades. Our mission: Offering our customers the best platform for successful business, at the Munich home location and around the globe.
Our customers are seeking a platform for professional exchange, promising business relations and networking with major multipliers and associations.
We can offer them all of this: Messe München is one of the largest trade fair companies worldwide and facility operator of the Munich exhibition grounds, the ICM – Internationales Congress Center and the MOC Veranstaltungscenter München. With a network of affiliated companies in Europe, Asia and South America and around 70 foreign representations, we also have a successful global presence. With a staff of around 1,100 employees, we organize and hold international flagship trade shows and conventions, and we host guest events, annual general meetings and corporate events including conferences and trainings in our various locations.
We bring people together, both live on site and digitally: 2020 presented the trade fair business around the world with great challenges. The majority of trade fairs couldn’t take place in person because of the coronavirus pandemic. With its innovative spirit, motivation and flexibility, Messe München therefore expanded its existing portfolio with digital formats and products during lockdown. It also fine-tuned a sophisticated safety and hygiene concept so that it was prepared as soon as in-person trade fairs were possible again: This was a tremendous success at IAA MOBILITY in September 2021. By looking forward, Messe München is once again in fifth place in the global revenue ranking for 2020. Thus, Messe München demonstrated its strength and stability, even in a crisis year.
Topics that Count for us: Digitalization. Globalization. Consolidation.
From Munich to the world: Messe München has become a global player. Thanks to many years of experience, a broad knowledge base and one of the most modern exhibition facilities worldwide, we know exactly how to make international key trade fairs and premium events successful.

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 has been expanded: After completion in 2018, the Munich exhibition venue now comprises 18 halls with a total exhibition area of 200,000 m².
