Press Releases

Messe Frankfurt continues to grow

Messe Frankfurt’s growth continued in the past financial year too.

Speaking at the Corporate Press Conference earlier today, Wolfgang

Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Messe Frankfurt,

announced: “We succeeded in setting a new record of around €718

million in sales”.

Messe Frankfurt is retaining its position in third place in a very

challenging and international competitive environment as well as being

well ahead of all German competitors and all worldwide trade fair

companies that have their own exhibition infrastructure.

According to the annual financial statements for financial year 2018,

Messe Frankfurt sales increased by more than seven percent year-onyear.

Consolidated annual net income for 2018 was more than

€50 million, around 25 percent up on 2017, while EBITDA was at a

record level of approximately €132 million. With a total of 507 events

worldwide in financial year 2018, more events were held under the

Messe Frankfurt umbrella than ever before. Almost five million people

came together at these interaction formats.

As Wolfgang Marzin emphasised: “Internationalisation is and will remain

our Group’s strategic direction.” In the light of acquisition activities by

major private trade fair companies, Messe Frankfurt has the distinct

advantage of having been active globally for more than three decades

and of being firmly established in successful economic regions and

strategically important markets with its brands and thematic areas of

focus. Recent figures indicate that 41 percent of Group sales – over

€294 million in total – was generated outside Germany. As Marzin

emphasises: “The very high levels of customer satisfaction throughout

our various industry sectors are central to the success of our events


The company’s events around the world in the first half of 2019 have

also been very positive. With regard to the Group’s international

operational activities, Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of

Messe Frankfurt, explains: “With their very high international component,

our flagship events have crucial added value for specialist retailers. They

provide a wealth of inspiration and show clear prospects in an

ambiguous world.” To this end, Messe Frankfurt adds value by investing

counter-cyclically in quality-enhancing and expansion measures. In

connection with the Group’s worldwide event growth, Braun explained:

“Messe Frankfurt is currently placing no fewer than 17 new events in its

key regions for 2019/2020.” Prime examples of this are the Clean Show

in the USA in 2019, and the Interior Lifestyle Middle East in Dubai and

Formnext South China in Shenzhen in 2020.

More and more events are being held at the company’s Frankfurt base.

As Uwe Behm, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt,

explains: “In this way, Frankfurt and its exhibition grounds are raising

their profile among international medical congresses as an international

congress venue.”

Over the past 20-plus years, Messe Frankfurt has invested almost one

billion euros of its own resources in modernising its exhibition grounds.

Hall 6 is currently being revitalised. When the building is added to the

network in time for the Frankfurt Book Fair, its energy consumption will

be 30 percent lower than legal requirements. As Behm emphasised: “At

Messe Frankfurt, we see an active energy management system as being

central to our sustainable business practices.” From 2020 onwards, the

Messe Frankfurt exhibition grounds will be operated using exclusively

green power. Behm: “All new and renovated buildings will also have an

efficient, energy-optimised design.”

In the current financial year, Messe Frankfurt aims to continue its

qualitative, quantitative and international growth. Wolfgang Marzin: “We

are the leaders in many markets, not least because we are constantly

evolving, because we grow sustainably and because we invest in our

future. It is the function of trade fairs to cushion the possible effects of

protectionist currents worldwide. In such situations, trade fairs are an

unfailing source of optimism.”
