Koelnmesse takes on responsibility

For Koelnmesse, taking on responsibility means acting sustainably for the benefit of its employees, its trade fairs, its exhibition centre and the city of Cologne as a trade fair venue. This is not just a matter of a few high-profile projects; it’s a question of responsible business operations in all of the company’s units. We have put together a few examples on the following pages.

Sustainability measures

_New trade fair formats

Koelnmesse put the year 2020 to use, driving the transformation of its events and readying new formats for use: From the conventional “trade fair business” to hybridisation. Conceptual design, our sales approach, communication and event implementation all needed to be rethought.


Highly motivated, healthy and well-trained employees are the basis of corporate success.


Marketing the city

As a key factor in the regional economy, Koelnmesse promotes Cologne as a business location.
