Messe München Celebrates Record Year of 2019
With over 32 000 exhibitors and around 2,5 million visitors at the Riem, Munich location, Messe München registered a record year in 2019, 15 of the company’s own events and 163 guest events took place at the Exhibition Center of Messe München last year.As an organiser of trade fairs and congresses, Messe München has been directly and severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Since March 2020, no more events have taken place. “In the worst case, we reckon with a loss in sales of up to EUR 240 million in the present year. We have been economical in recent years and have currently adopted a strict cost-saving policy. We are doing everything to protect the health of our exhibitors, visitors and staff and to be in a position to carry out the upcoming events successfully in the autumn”, summarised Klaus Dittrich the present situation.As a replacement for cancelled events, Messe München has developed digital conferences and platforms to at least offer its customers the possibility of making presentations and contacts and conducting business online.
