NürnbergMesse a Winner from Reunification
If 9 November 1989 was a historic turning point for Germany, for NürnbergMesse it has turned out to be the lift-off date for soaring growth. Key figures for exhibitions and finances have climbed steadily over the past 25 years: the figures for exhibitors and net occupied space have roughly trebled, attendance has grown 34 per cent, and corporate revenues have skyrocketed by a factor of 15. Today, Nuremberg is an international business hub – and NürnbergMesse is a central focus here. More than 29,000 exhibitors and 1.3 million visitors attended 151 NürnbergMesse Group events in Germany and other countries in 2014. The current financial year has seen the highest figures in company history for exhibitors from outside Germany, visitors, and leased exhibition space. For NürnbergMesse Group CEOs Dr. Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann, the conclusion is perfectly clear: ‘2014 was one of the best financial years in our company’s history. We have never been as international as we are today.’ All in all, NürnbergMesse expects roughly EUR 230 million in revenue – and it should be recalled that compared to the 2012 record (EUR 236 million), the current figure does not include the biennial FachPack fair, which was not held this year.

ACREX India growing continuously
ACREX India, South Asia’s biggest trade fair for air conditioning systems, refrigeration systems and building services, takes place in Bangalore from 26–28 February 2015.

With products from all segments of air conditioning systems, refrigeration systems and building services and its basic theme of “Less Energy=More Life”, the event spans the spectrum to energy efficiency and renewable energy. It also deals with global warming aspects.
Nuremberg moves closer to Istanbul hub
On 1 January 2015, Turkish Airlines will become the “Preferred Carrier” – or favoured airline partner – of NürnbergMesse. Exhibitors and trade visitors in particular are set to benefit from the collaboration between these two globally oriented companies. For the CEOs of NürnbergMesse, Dr. Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann, this agreement is at the same time an important building block for improving access to Nuremberg as a trade fair destination. “Turkish Airlines is a genuine heavyweight in the global airline industry. The partnership we have now entered into is an important step and means better connections to international destinations via Istanbul for Nuremberg as a trade fair venue.” Dr. Osman Nuri Hasirci, Managing Director of Turkish Airlines in Northern Bavaria, holds a similar viewpoint: “For business travellers in particular, Turkish Airlines offers an attractive range of international flights. The contract signed today brings Nuremberg closer to important destinations, for example in Asia.”

NürnbergMesse globally present
It’s mainly the international exhibitors and visitors who make a trade fair into a world-leading event. Attracting and supporting participants from all over the world is the task of the NürnbergMesse Group’s over 50 worldwide representatives. Together with the five subsidiaries in Brazil, China, Italy, India and the USA, they now cover over 100 countries throughout the world for the Franconian exhibition company. Like the Delegate of German Industry and Commerce(AHK) in Vietnam, which is coordinating the networking for NürnbergMesse as part of the 14th Asia-Pacific Conference of German Business (APC) in Ho Chi Minh City. “Our representatives abroad are key partners, some of whom have cooperated closely with us for many years. They are an important interface with foreign visitors and exhibitors in order to achieve a large international involvement at events in Nürnberg,” say Dr. Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann, CEOs of the NürnbergMesse Group. Depending on the country, a visit to an international exhibition has its challenges.

NürnbergMesse Italia “molto bene” for five years
“L’Italia è la numero uno!” has been the case at NürnbergMesse for many years. This leading position has even been improved on by the founding of NürnbergMesse Italia. Some 1,500 exhibitors and over 16,000 trade visitors from Italy meanwhile take part in the international trade fairs in Nürnberg – every year. Compared with ten years ago this is an increase of 30 per cent for exhibitors and 60 per cent for visitors. This means Italy is the country with the most foreign exhibitors in Nürnberg. “Italy is a tremendously important market for NürnbergMesse – the most important in Europe apart from the German market. It is therefore decisive for us to have our subsidiary here in Italy,” say the CEOs of the NürnbergMesse Group, Peter Ottmann and Dr. Roland Fleck, on the occasion of the five-year celebration in Milan.
