Messe Munich (or Neue Messe München) is Germany’s trade fair complex with the largest outdoor area - a total of 414,000 sq m, 220,000 sq m of which is made up by green space. The indoor area is currently 200,000 sq m and is divided into 18 modern exhibition halls. According to the latest statistics, Messe Munich accommodates over 200 events each year. Around 40 of them are organised by Messe München GmbH.

The venue combines efficient infrastructure, use of advanced information technologies and commitment to sustainability and environmental protection. In addition, Messe Munich offers gourmet experiences provided by renowned restaurateurs.

Established in 1908, Munich’s original fairgrounds were in proximity to Ruhmeshalle. 1998 marked the completion and opening of the new exhibition premises in Messestadt Riem in the Trudering-Riem district. The Gran Paradiso installation by the local artist Stephan Huber graces the water area by the venue from the very start.

Messe Munich’s most recent expansion took place from 2016 to 2018. Two new exhibition halls - C5 and C6 - were added, plus the Conference Center Nord. Their inauguration coincided with the 20th anniversary of Messe Munich in Munich-Riem.
