Trade Fairs and Exhibitions
Nuremberg is on the way to becoming a European congress metropolis
Over the past few years Nuremberg has successfully establishing itself as host to highly specialised international trade fairs and congresses. A total of more than 50 trade fairs and congresses are held in Nuremberg, the latter frequently with accompanying exhibitions. Two thirds are rated as "International Trade Fairs"; amongst them are seven leading world fairs. For instance the toy manufacturer from China keeps one eye on Nuremberg as does the coffee producer from Brazil who can count on selling his entire annual harvest at the BioFach.
In the congress market lies an enormous growth potential which, following the opening of the CCN East (CongressCenter Nürnberg), can now be made full use of. At present Europe's most modern congress centre has a seating capacity of 3,200. There are therefore altogether more than 11,000 seats available for congresses in the Trade Fair Centre in Nuremberg.
The NürnbergMesse is member of the Gemeinschaft Deutscher Großmessen (GDG e. V.). In the German trade fair makers' rankings, the NürnbergMesse is today at 7th place. Measured by exhibitors, visitors and available space, the NürnbergMesse is amongst the top 20 leading trade fair locations in the world.
