Messe Karlsruhe

See and be seen. Some trade fair grounds are so big that it's easy to get lost. Then there are others that offer very little space for showcasing big ideas. And then there's the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre. There you get both: an easily negotiated, clearly structured area that simplifies any visit – and spacious exhibition areas where you can put on a major show. Start with the remarkable Events Hall with its open architecture defined by glass and steel. Lots of space, lots of natural light, lots of wood: the four exhibition halls also hold surprises. Because they are different from other halls. More elegant, more inviting, more of an experience. Each hall is at ground level, column-free, has floors that can support weights of 3,000 kg/m² and can be blacked out individually. Good for your nerves: state-of-the-art technology ensures your function will go off smoothly. Good for your stomach: our trade fair catering service includes the Eastside self-service restaurant at the east entrance, the CAFETIERO Café, two bistros between the halls and a really special place for a tasty meal: the glass-walled Bellefoire Restaurant in the upper storey of the foyer – with sophisticated cuisine and a superb view over all the colourful trade fair happenings. For conventions, too, the Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre offers the perfect setting: the Trade Fair Conference Centre accommodates more than 2,000 guests and is situated in the upper storey directly above the entrance areas. Meetings, conferences, workshops, seminars: every type of business event is possible, with the choice of a large auditorium, the convention area in the east wing and twelve additional conference rooms. All can be divided and combined to requirement, all have state-of-the-art conference equipment, all offer direct access to the trade fair restaurant. Need still more space? Then use our Events Hall too, with room for up to 1,200 guests. And for major events the dm-arena offers space for up to 10,000 persons – for company conventions, party and trade union conferences and more.
