Company boss Klaus Dittrich: “We’ve been growing at above the market average for years”


With a record sales volume of 428 million euros in the year 2016, Messe München has again taken one of the leading positions worldwide. That is confirmed by a current survey from AUMA, the Association of the German Trade Fair Industry.


In terms of sales, Messe München thus occupies sixth place among the exhibition organizers worldwide and third place in Germany. “We can be very proud of this success”, says Klaus Dittrich, Chairman & CEO.


The three keys to this success are


a highly efficient exhibition center which is among the most modern in the world, even 20 years after being put into operation;


a strong portfolio of the company’s own events with a total of ten world-leading trade shows which are continually being enhanced; and


careful internationalization of exhibition activities in the most significant growth regions of the world.


“Of course we won’t be resting on this success”, says Klaus Dittrich, “because especially the competition on international level and the process of digitization hold both opportunities and risks. Messe München is outstandingly well placed and is determined to make use of these challenges in order to further extend its international position.”
