Before, during and after the fair—connect accompanies you all year round and offers you not only comprehensive services, but also a community area that you can use to network with your industry. The new event app of Messe München will be available for download for selected trade fairs in the future.
It is the perfect companion for every trade fair attendee, no matter if you are participating as a visitor, exhibitor, journalist or industry representative. You will receive all relevant information on exhibitors, products, events, topics and services.
and, as of May, also for: transport logistic and OutDoor by ISPO
The following connect features offer you the best possible orientation and overview, so that nothing stands in the way of a successful trade fair visit!
Interactive Hall Plan
The interactive hall plan will give you a perfect overview of the exhibition halls and will mark your favorite exhibitors directly in the app, allowing you to determine your own, ideal route through the fair.
Exhibitors and Events
The app enables you to plan your stay at the trade show individually in advance: choose your favorites! You can find and mark relevant exhibitors and products via our filter function. Also favorite events of interest to you. The upcoming relevant events will then automatically appear on the connect homescreen.
Communicate directly with our Customer Support in live chat and receive an immediate answer to questions related to your trade-fair visit. Live chat is not only available during the fair, but also during the setup and dismantling periods.
Another focus of the app is the networking option: we offer a digital platform for information exchange, discussion and networking. The basic idea is based on group communication. There are so-called channels in which the participants can interact or get in touch with decision-makers and experts from the industry—and stay in touch—before, during and after the show!
You can either start a conversation with another app user directly via Messages or communicate within a group. So you can contact existing customers as well as potential new customers. The networking feature is not just for trade fair visitors: by purchasing a Networking Only ticket, you can participate in the industry gathering from any location.
Current Topics of the Industry
The topic channels are intended to discuss industry-related questions and benefit from each other's experience. Share what you are doing or what is moving you, and get targeted feedback from the industry.
That too is possible—with our sponsored channels. Set up your own brand channel and feed your own content to present your company on an interactive platform.
