The exhibition business in Berlin all started with the first Prussian Commercial Exhibition in 1822. The city has been drawing exhibitors and visitors for 200 years – a special anniversary for Messe Berlin as a business driver of the capital city and therefore a reason to celebrate!
„Exhibitions are the gateway to the world and are part of Berliners' DNA.“
Franziska Giffey, Governing Mayor of Berlin
Franziska Giffey, Governing Mayor of Berlin and patron of the anniversary: "Exhibitions are the gateway to the world and are part of Berliners' DNA. The 200-year history of Messe Berlin is a history of innovation and progress. The IFA consumer electronics fair, International Green Week and, since 1967, also the ITB travel trade show have remained leading Berlin fairs with international flair until today." The anniversary year takes the motto "200 years of hosting the world", which not only looks back but also looks forwards: "We are convinced that people will want to experience products and innovations with all their senses in the future, too, and will seek face-to-face live contacts to build networks", said Martin Ecknig, CEO of Messe Berlin.
