Messe Frankfurt launches seven brand events in Central Asia
Tashkent, 16 February 2024. Messe Frankfurt will extend its footprint in the Central Asian market by establishing seven brand events in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. The country’s strategic location as a crossroads of Europe and Asia positions it as a promising trade gateway and transportation hub, facilitating the economic development of neighbouring countries and access to the wider region. The company’s stronger presence in the market will promote business opportunities and foster the sustainable development of pillar industries, including cosmetics, textiles and clothing, automotive, logistics and transportation.
Messe Frankfurt raises the bar for growth
Messe Frankfurt has left the difficult and demanding last three years behind it and is now enjoying both qualitative and quantitative growth in Germany and abroad. By the end of financial year 2023, approximately 340 events will have been held worldwide under the Messe Frankfurt Group umbrella, with more than 84,000 exhibitors and an estimated four million visitors. After a strong core business in 2023 with sales in excess of €600 million, the company is planning further growth in 2024 – a year in which a relatively high number of events are scheduled – and expects sales to be comparable with the previous record year 2019. Messe Frankfurt will increase its international competitiveness by investing in its worldwide core business, modern technology and sustainable event management.
Messe Frankfurt expects sales revenue in the region of €600 million
Messe Frankfurt has been able to continue its growth course more quickly than anticipated and now expects a further increase in sales for the current financial year. Around 340 events are being held under the Messe Frankfurt umbrella in 2023. After a very dynamic first six months, projections for the second half of the year are also good. The Group is able to operate at full force largely thanks to the decision by top management not to lay off any staff during the three-year crisis period. With investments in its core business and digital transformation and a strong focus on sustainability, Messe Frankfurt is continuing to optimise its long-term corporate strategy.
Messe Frankfurt Japan relocates to new office to accommodate expansion
The move to larger premises on 20 February marks a new chapter in Messe Frankfurt’s ongoing growth journey in Japan. Following a solid recovery in its trade fair business from COVID-19 related disruption, the company organised 10 events and welcomed 2,838 exhibitors and 183,243 visitors in Japan during 2022.
Messe Frankfurt back on course for growth
Messe Frankfurt is back on course for growth again after the pandemic restrictions were eased in April of this year. Approximately 52,000 exhibitors and 3.3 million visitors attended the 310 events held during the year under the Messe Frankfurt umbrella. The Group is expecting sales to be in the region of €450 million, compared with €154 million in the previous year. Now that the master plan for the Messe Frankfurt exhibition grounds is being brought to a successful close, the focus of investment is on three key areas: new trade fair concepts, digitalisation and sustainability.
