Messe Düsseldorf: 2012 a successful business year +++ Group consolidated sales at EUR 381 million +++ Group profit steady at previous-year level


Messe Düsseldorf Group closed the 2012 business year with a 2.1% increase in sales, reaching a total of EUR 381 million (2011: EUR 373 million).

Messe Düsseldorf: Successful with its own trade fairs and as a competent, expert partner for guest event organisers +++ Organisers benefit from the outstanding infrastructure and best possible service provided by the location


With 14 events in 13 weeks, the first quarter of 2013 was extremely eventful for Messe Düsseldorf. In addition to the company‘s own major fairs such as boot or ProWein, four guest events were also held at the exhibition centre; each year there are ten to fifteen events, which are not organised by Messe Düsseldorf itself. “Many of the trade fairs and conferences staged by our guest organisers are a thematic complement to the classic areas of competence and expertise at the Düsseldorf location. In this connection for example, the pharmaceutical trade fair EXPOPHARM rounds off the medicine and health theme sector. As a result, the organisers not only benefit from the optimum conditions at the exhibition centre, but also from the sector-specific know-how and wealth of experience of our staff”, explains Werner M. Dornscheidt, President and CEO Messe Düsseldorf. read more...
