Modernisation of the Fair Site in Essen

The starting signal for the New Messe Essen was given on May 2, 2016. The comprehensive modernisation of the fair site in Essen with an investment volume of around Euro 90 million is in full swing.

Regular updates on this website will keep you informed of how IPM ESSEN is affected by the modernisation.

During the first construction phase from May 2016 to October 2017 Halls 9 and 9.1 are being demolished.

At the same time, a glass foyer covering 2,000 square metres is being created on the East Fair Building.

Oliver P. Kuhrt, CEO of Messe Essen GmbH:

"The temporary halls will be located in attractive positions which will permit an optimum circuit.

We are using the modernisation as an opportunity to combine the ranges on offer at IPM ESSEN spatially and to adjust the hall structure to the target groups of visitors."
