Messe Frankfurt aims to reach 2019 sales levels again by as early as 2023
| 29 June, 2020
Messe Frankfurt is looking optimistically to the future. At Messe Frankfurt’s Corporate Press Conference, President and Chief Executive Officer Wolfgang Marzin emphasised: “By 2023, we want to reach the same level of sales as we did in financial year 2019.”
Mayor Peter Feldmann, Chairman of the Messe Frankfurt Supervisory Board, also stressed: “The Group’s strength – which lies in its solid and strategically smart business and investment practices – is proving its worth more than ever today. I particularly welcome the counter-cyclical investments, be it in the exhibition grounds – as is the case with Hall 5 at present – or in strengthening its portfolio of events around the world.”
In the second half of the year, Messe Frankfurt aims to resume its trade fair operations using a well-structured, clearly planned approach. With an extensive protection and hygiene concept, the Frankfurt Book Fair in October will be kicking things off at Messe Frankfurt’s Frankfurt base, followed by Formnext and Hypermotion. Nordstil is to be held in Hamburg at the beginning of September, while Nuremberg will be playing host to SPS in November. Messe Frankfurt is also confident regarding its international business. Group events are due to resume in China as of mid-July. Many of the postponed events have been assigned replacement dates for this year.
