This also includes the activities of the subsidiary Messe Düsseldorf Moscow.

Dr Stephan Keller, Lord Mayor of the state capital Düsseldorf and Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Messe Düsseldorf, explains that it is a logical step that Messe Düsseldorf, as a city subsidiary, also suspends its activities in Russia for the time being. Previously, the city partnership between Moscow and Düsseldorf had already been put on ice.

Wolfram N. Diener, Chairman of the Board of Messe Düsseldorf, emphasises: “The current events are in contradiction to the mission and values of our company to create international marketplaces for a free, cross-border intercultural and economic exchange.
