Trade-fair center boosts the economy
50 years of Messe München
Messe München celebrated its 50th anniversary on April 1, 2014. The company looks back on an impressive history: It went from establishing the Messe München exhibition portfolio in the early years to the Group becoming increasingly international and evolving into one of the leading organizers of trade fairs and exhibitions in the world.

The study conducted by the Ifo Institute for Economic Research last year documents the company's success. It examined the economic consequences of Munich's trade fairs and conventions for the city, the state and the rest of Germany. It did an impressive job of documenting how the Messe München trade-fair center strengthens the local economy more than ever. Messe München's trade fairs and conventions secure 24,400 jobs and generate EUR 2.63 billion in nationwide sales as well as EUR 490 million in total tax revenue.

In short: Every euro of sales at Messe München GmbH generates approximately ten euros in the region.
