Take a look around – let yourself be inspired!
Digitisation, networking, safety and security are some of the most pressing issues of our time. Messe Frankfurt has 24 events in Europe, Asia and South America that address these themes and offer key solutions. They provide innovative interaction platforms for efficient building management, intelligent networking, security of supply, design and sustainable usage of scarce resources, namely energy and water. The two international flagship events ISH and Light + Building are of particular interest here.
Consumer goods are pure emotion. Both as everyday utensils and design objects, they are an important economic factor. The continuing trend towards digitisation and new distribution forms is changing sectors at a breakneck pace. Tailor-made business platforms provide answers to the challenges of the time. Messe Frankfurt has the internationally leading trade fair formats for zoning in on the opportunities of the future.
Automation and digitisation of production and processes: These are the challenges facing exhibitors and visitors at our trade fairs for the Electronics & Automation Technologies sector. With SPS IPC Drives (electric automation), SMTconnect (systems integration in microelectronics) and PCIM (power electronics, intelligent drive technologies and energy management), Mesago Messe Frankfurt is responsible for the most important forums for their industries internationally.
Music, shows and other forms of live performances are taken to a new level of experience. This is made possible by technology and services relating to music production, stage lighting and sound. Messe Frankfurt’s international brands are a magnet for B2B and B2C target groups, with experts and key accounts from all over the world coming together here.
The increasing scarcity of fossil fuels, growing global energy demand, access to clean water, waste disposal and recycling are all amongst the major challenges facing the world in future. These challenges are also creating new opportunities in these markets worldwide. The world needs intelligent technologies and innovative companies. Eco Expo Asia is an example of the platforms we offer throughout the world to foster exchange in the growing market for environmental technology.
Sustainable and responsible food management for a growing global population presents challenges for which the industry has concrete solutions. Innovative ways of ensuring the safe, secure, efficient and economical production and packaging of food are the focal point of our four trade fairs for the food industry. The industry's top themes are resource efficiency, production optimisation, food safety, digital solutions and food trends. With IFFA, an event that has been taking place since 1949, Messe Frankfurt is responsible for organising the international flagship event for the meat industry in Frankfurt am Main. The company’s other three events in this industry are located in China and Argentina.
Intelligent process optimisation, complexity and agility: Messe Frankfurt provides focused B-to-B platforms for each of these fields in growth regions worldwide. These include trade fairs and congresses, such as Formnext and RosMould for additive manufacturing and intelligent production processes, Wire & Cable Guangzhou for the wire and cable industries, and Zellcheming Expo for decision-makers in the chemical pulp and paper industry.
Mobility and logistics are the cornerstone of our modern life. Connected cars, autonomous driving and renewable energy drives are the hot-button topics in the sector. At our international trade fairs, it is not only key accounts from the automotive sector who interact with another. We provide the right trade fair format for intelligent ideas relating to transport systems of the future. Not to mention events in the fields of commercial vehicles, motorcycles and logistics.
Messe Frankfurt is one of the world’s leading organisers of events for the growth field of civil security, with eleven events in Asia, Germany, the Middle East, South America and East Africa. We have responded to the growing global market in this sector by offering an excellent means of gaining access to the world’s most dynamic regions with international brands such as Intersec and Secutech.
With the ever-increasing importance of Industry 4.0, digitisation, safety, security, textile care and cleanrooms have become essential components. Messe Frankfurt events throw a spotlight on industry’s latest innovations in key fields, creating the ideal platform for discussions with business partners and customers. With Texcare International in Frankfurt, TXCA&CLE in Shanghai and various conferences taking place under the Texcare Forum brand, Messe Frankfurt has established a presence in strategic markets for textile care, while the specialist Cleanzone fair focuses on hygiene and cleanroom technologies.
We create momentum for the textile industry worldwide, bringing together the most important events along the textile value chain within the “Texpertise Network”. Over 50 events worldwide show what is happening in the sector. At Messe Frankfurt, innovative ideas are created and presented with a global reach.

Joint study by Messe Frankfurt and RWTH Aachen confirms safety of air quality in trade fair halls
Over the past two years, it has been virtually impossible to hold trade fairs, even though many exhibition halls in Germany have sophisticated ventilation systems in place. The health authorities operated on the assumption that, when people breathe, they emit potentially virus-infected aerosols in the same way they emit CO2 and that this would lead to widespread infections with SARS-CoV-2.
