History of Koelnmesse – a tradition of successful trade fairs

Konrad Adenauer dreamed of creating a global trading centre for the regional economy on Cologne soil: the 1924 Cologne Spring Fair laid the foundations for successful trade fairs in Germany. Nine decades later, after the German Economic Miracle and globalisation, with dedicated employees and top, innovative, international trade fairs in Cologne, Adenauer’s vision has become a reality with Koelnmesse GmbH.
