Messe Erfurt - The right location for your event

As the second largest trade fair location in the new federal states, Messe Erfurt GmbH has become established as a forum for companies and consumers in the heart of Germany. Every year, around 200 events are held here with over 7,000 exhibitors and around 600,000 visitors.

The site combines hall 1 (multipurpose hall), two exhibition halls and the Congress Centre under one roof, thus offering many possibilities for a wide range of events. Organisers, exhibitors and visitors appreciate the high level of functionality of the halls and conference rooms, the short distances between the site locations and the pleasant, bright and spacious atmosphere.

Business areas

Trade fairs and exhibitions

The modern and functional halls provide a lot of space for trade fairs and consumer fairs.


The right infrastructure, from exhibitor parking spaces and organisation offices to ground-level access roads for smooth assembly and dismantling processes, is complemented by expert service provision.

Congresses and conferences

Messe Erfurt is the perfect location for congresses with trade exhibitions, conferences, receptions and evening events.


The 7 divisible rooms with natural light provide space for over 1,600 people, while the multipurpose hall can accommodate up to 5,200 people as well. In addition, there is plenty of space for visitor services in the spacious foyers.

Events and concerts

The multipurpose hall, which can be used for a variety of purposes, is one of the most important locations in Germany for concert organisers.


Up to 12,000 guests can follow sports events, concerts or TV productions supported by top technology here.

Do trade fairs

We see ourselves as a location factor with a driving function: the opportunities for central and east Germany, the networking of the economy and regional marketing are the socio-political topics which stand out for the region. We integrate these topics into the life of the trade fair location so that Erfurt sets standards.

Sights set on the future

Rapid.Tech 3D is one of the most important information and communication platforms for generative manufacturing processes in Europe. The focus is on the latest developments in rapid prototyping, the manufacturing of end products with the help of additive manufacturing and the transfer of the technology to series production.

Messe Erfurt is therefore the only trade fair location which both showcases the industrial use of this technology and addresses private users and people who are interested in the technology in a targeted manner.

Active location policy

Formats such as Investor Days Thüringen or Thüringer Immobiliengespräche aim to deepen the networking of the domestic economy and to promote the marketing of Thuringia as a business location.

Consumer focus

The great consumer fairs attract thousands of guests from all over central Germany. Events such as the Rassehunde- & Rassekatzen-Ausstellung, Reiten-Jagen-Fischen und Forst³, Grüne Tage Thüringen, sport.aktiv, Haus.Bau.Ambiente or Erlebniswelt Modellbau feature exciting product presentations and offer guests interesting experiences.
