Fairs & Events in Essen
Trade fair visit in Essen – comfortable with chauffeur
Located in the heart of the Ruhr region, Essen is one of the most important locations in the Ruhr metropolitan region. With approx. 580,000 inhabitants, the former cultural capital is one of the ten largest cities in Germany – as are the trade fair cities of Cologne, Düsseldorf and Dortmund. In addition, Essen is an extremely relevant business location: three DAX corporations and several MDAX and other large companies have their headquarters here.
For a long time, the city was regarded as the centre of the coal and steel industry. Meanwhile neither coal is mined nor steel is produced in Essen, but in the course of structural change the service sector has grown massively in recent decades. The monuments of the former industry are today the core of a gradually evolving industrial culture – including the UNECO World Cultural Heritage Zollverein Mine.
Around 55 trade fairs are held in Essen every year – including 10 leading international equestrian fairs such as Equinata and Techno Classica, the world’s largest classic car fair. In addition, trade fairs geared primarily to the supply sector and smaller special exhibitions are also held here. Over the course of the year, a total of around 1.5 million visitors from more than 160 nations come together here. In addition, there are more than 800 events in three congress centres as well as shows and corporate events in the Grugahalle, which also belongs to Messe Essen GmbH. In addition, there are countless opportunities in Essen and the neighbouring cities of the Metropole Ruhr to make promising contacts at business events and trendy meetings.
