Fairs on the rise

Messe Institut. With an average turnover of 231m euro, the seven German fair companies that have joined forces in the Union of Major German Fairs (GDG), posted a record figure, as Messe Institut has discovered. The GDG consists of Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hanover, Cologne, Munich and Nuremberg Fairs. Messe Institut calculated the average turnover of the past three years, as many fairs have different annual schedules. Frankfurt Fair is number one at 381m euros, well ahead of Düsseldorf (318m euros).
