Global Exhibitions Day 2018
Koelnmesse and the entire international trade fair industry are celebrating Global Exhibitions Day on 6June: This year together with our partner Corferias at Alimentec in Colombia! As Koelnmesse, we are strong in Latin America: In addition to our successful subsidiary in Brazil, we have been the first international trade fair company to have our own subsidiary in Colombia since the end of May.
With this year's focal topic of career paths and opportunities, Koelnmesse is pleased not only about an increase in the workforce to an average of 804 employees in 2017 (+20 percent in the last three years), but also about the successful cooperation with the Cologne Institute of Trade Fair Management. This is dedicated to the training of executives in the trade fair industry.
We are looking forward to many more successful trade fairs and to continuing the excellent cooperation with our national and international team!
Trade fairs reconsidered
Digitalisation is one of the most important trends of our time and it also has wide reaching implications for the trade fair industry. We tap into the opportunities this affords and implement them to best benefit Koelnmesse’s exhibitors, visitors and employees. A crucial element of taking this step into the future is the ability to go beyond the beaten path and entirely reconsider what was previously considered given. Read more in our Annual Report 2017.

We are looking forward to the next steps. Follow us into the digital future and find out how we are rethinking the trade fair of the future!
