| 14 December, 2018
Messe Frankfurt has continued its growth in financial year 2018. All in all, new records were set in relevant parameters. Messe Frankfurt is expecting sales to be in the region of €715 million. The 490-plus events held around the world under the Messe Frankfurt umbrella were attended by almost 102,000 exhibitors and an estimated 4.5 million visitors.
Peter Feldmann, Chairman of the Messe Frankfurt Supervisory Board and Mayor of Frankfurt, was delighted at the outstanding figures: “As the majority shareholder, we are proud to have a company like Messe Frankfurt in our investment portfolio.”
The close historical ties between the city of Frankfurt and Messe Frankfurt have always led to advancements on both sides, not least through the economic effects generated by the events in Frankfurt and throughout the region. In 2018, around 54 percent of overall sales – approximately €385 million – can be attributed to the company’s Frankfurt base. As Mayor Feldmann stressed: “Messe Frankfurt generated almost €424 million in Germany alone. This is a new record and is roughly equivalent to the overall sales recorded by the next largest German competitors in the past.”
