Many small steps lead to a greater whole


Koelnmesse 3.0 stands for the modernisation of Koelnmesse until 2030. It will particularly affect the Southern Halls and the traffic and parking situation, and it will create more attractive halls and better traffic routes. The plan also includes a new Hall 1plus, which will offer 10,000 m² of additional exhibition space to make up for the constraints caused by temporary construction measures, a CONFEX® Hall for new formats that combine a conference and an exhibition, and a new entrance terminal for the Southern Halls that will act as a modern and functional boulevard that connects and leads into the eastern and western parts of the exhibition grounds.

The closely coordinated sequence of construction measures and trade fair times enables Koelnmesse to modernize the exhibition centre without interrupting operations.
