Special services and benefits
Our events generate enthusiasm for products, brands and industries. That is why it is so important that our employees are enthusiastic about their activities as well. As an employer, we want to inspire and motivate you. Requirement for being satisfied is an attractive working environment with challenging and fascinating positions. Moreover, we are known for our collegial corporate culture and various benefits that await you at Koelnmesse.
Flexible working hours
Lots of our jobs can be performed on a full-time or part-time basis, and you can schedule your own hours as part of an attractive flexitime arrangement. If you perform any overtime, these hours are remunerated or compensated in full in time off (in one consecutive block).
We firmly believe that the best ideas are borne from collaboration – sometimes that's on site in the office or on our trade fair grounds and sometimes that's while working remotely.

Every Koelnmesse employee has a Microsoft Surface including a pen and keyboard – so you can work just as smoothly while on business trips or out and about as you can while on our trade fair grounds.
