Trade Shows and Business Events
Hamburg is known to be one of the major Northern European destinations for trade shows.
Consumer and trade shows held at the Messehallen exhibition centre are managed by Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH.
Spanning almost 100,000 sqm across eleven exhibition halls, the Messehallen exhibition centre offers plenty of space that can be flexibly sized and furnished to host a variety of trade shows, conferences and other events such as shareholder meetings. Among the most notable fairs in recent years are the SMM (shipbuilding, machinery and marine technology), Internorga (foodservice and hospitality), Hanseboot (boat-building and yachting), Aircraft Interiors Expo and WindEnergy Hamburg. The exhibition centre is located in the heart of St. Pauli district, and can be reached easily by underground line U2 (Messehallen station) as well as suburban railway lines S11, S21 or S31 (Sternschanze station).
The Hamburg Convention Bureau, a direct subsidiary of Hamburg Marketing, is responsible for promoting Hamburg and the metropolitan region as premium event locations.
For smaller business conventions and events the Airport Convention Centre offers a variety of differently-sized meeting rooms.
