Connecting bright minds
Every year, our exhibitions and congresses connect more than 110,000 bright minds from all over the world. Drawing inspiration from our events, these individuals create new solutions that shape the future.
Our highly motivated and passionate team of around 160 people is dedicated to achieving this.
Participating in our events means taking away a wealth of knowledge, new contacts, an abundance of inspiration. And, as part of Messe Frankfurt’s worldwide network, we are able to facilitate this exchange of ideas across borders.
Connecting bright minds – this is the passion that motivates us day after day.
