World-leading trade fair organiser wins competitive bid

 

Leading international trade fair and conference organiser, Messe Frankfurt GmbH, was recently awarded the responsibility for organising the German Pavilion at the upcoming 2015 World Expo in Milan, Italy. Messe Frankfurt was awarded the prestigious contract by the German Ministry of Economics, beating off stiff competition from numerous other bids.

 

“Compared to other bidders, Messe Frankfurt’s proposal better met the requirements of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi)”, commented Dietmar Schmitz, Commissioner General for Trade Fair Policies and EXPO Participation at the BMWi. “We look forward to a fruitful cooperation.”

 

“We are pleased to have won the contract and would like to thank the federal government for their trust in Messe Frankfurt's expertise”, added Wolfgang Marzin, President and CEO of Messe Frankfurt.

 

The World Expo takes place every five years, and Milan follows previous editions in Hannover (2000), Nagakute (Japan, 2005) and Shanghai (China, 2010). Dubai is currently in the running to host the Expo in 2020. The theme of the 2015 Expo is “Feeding the planet, energy for life”. According to the organisers, the national pavilions will focus on issues such as food, energy, life and the globe. The World Expo is scheduled to be open for six months, from 1 May to 31 October 2015.

 

Messe Frankfurt is considered the world’s largest trade fair corporation with its own exhibition grounds. The company has a presence in more than 150 countries around the globe. Over the course of the year, events “made by Messe Frankfurt” take place in more than 30 locations. In 2011 alone, Messe Frankfurt organised a total of 100 trade fairs, of which more than half were held outside Germany, with eight having been held in Dubai.

 

“Messe Frankfurt being chosen as organiser of the German Pavilion is a great honour and acknowledgement of its years of expertise in conducting trade events around the world,“ said Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt’s Middle East subsidiary, Epoc Messe Frankfurt. “Over the years we have grown to be one of the leaders in the trade fair and conference field in the region, by extending Messe Frankfurt’s brand of in-depth market knowledge and expertise to our regional events,“ he added.

 

Epoc Messe Frankfurt has grown to be one of the leading trade fair and conference organisers in the fast-growing Middle East region with a comprehensive calendar of tightly-focused trade events.
