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.
