Messe Frankfurt raises the bar for growth
Messe Frankfurt has left the difficult and demanding last three years behind it and is now enjoying both qualitative and quantitative growth in Germany and abroad. By the end of financial year 2023, approximately 340 events will have been held worldwide under the Messe Frankfurt Group umbrella, with more than 84,000 exhibitors and an estimated four million visitors. After a strong core business in 2023 with sales in excess of €600 million, the company is planning further growth in 2024 – a year in which a relatively high number of events are scheduled – and expects sales to be comparable with the previous record year 2019. Messe Frankfurt will increase its international competitiveness by investing in its worldwide core business, modern technology and sustainable event management.
Messe Frankfurt expands into Indonesia with launch of Asiabike Jakarta in 2024
Jakarta, 31 October, 2023. With its commitment to net zero by 2060, renewable energy and green innovation are increasingly topping the list of development priorities for Indonesia. Now, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd is stepping forward with its first trade fair in the country – Asiabike Jakarta, which aims to become the leading platform in the region for showcasing two-wheeler innovations and fostering business opportunities in the sustainable mobility sector. The inaugural edition is scheduled to take place from 30 April – 4 May 2024 at the Jakarta International Expo (JIExpo), organised in cooperation with the Jiangsu Bicycle Co Ltd, Periklindo (Indonesian Electric Vehicle Industry Association), and Pt. Dyandra Promosindo.
Messe Frankfurt expects sales revenue in the region of €600 million
Messe Frankfurt has been able to continue its growth course more quickly than anticipated and now expects a further increase in sales for the current financial year. Around 340 events are being held under the Messe Frankfurt umbrella in 2023. After a very dynamic first six months, projections for the second half of the year are also good. The Group is able to operate at full force largely thanks to the decision by top management not to lay off any staff during the three-year crisis period. With investments in its core business and digital transformation and a strong focus on sustainability, Messe Frankfurt is continuing to optimise its long-term corporate strategy.
Adding value with sustainable business practices
For Messe Frankfurt, sustainability means acting as a responsible corporate citizen while continuing to strengthen the Group’s performance. Sustainability is a central pillar of its corporate strategy. Here, the company strikes a healthy balance between ecological and economic interests, social responsibility and diversity. Our sustainable business practices are geared towards the ten principles of the UN Global Compact and the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
At home in global markets
For over 30 years, Messe Frankfurt has been active in growth markets worldwide with its sector expertise. The Group’s events outside Germany allow SMEs in particular to gain a foothold in emerging markets. The Messe Frankfurt Group has a powerful global network consisting of 28 subsidiaries and more than 50 sales partners serving some 180 countries.
