One of the most modern trade fair and exhibition centres in the world

Hamburg Messe and CCH – Congress Center Hamburg is a cutting-edge trade fair and convention complex in a very central location. Altogether, 107,000 square metres of exhibition space are available to exhibitors and visitors. The new trade fair halls are notable for very light and transparent architecture and blend well into their immediate surroundings. Immediately adjacent to the green innercity oases of Planten un Blomen and Schanzenpark, Karolinenviertel, Grindelhof and Hamburg University, Hamburg Messe is truly unique for its downtown location.

Hamburg Messe

More than 400 events visited by over a million people are held annually in the grounds of Hamburg Messe and Congress GmbH. The portfolio of trade fairs extends from such specialised fairs as SMM (the premier world event for the shipbuilding industry) and INTERNORGA (Europe’s leading trade fair for the hotel and catering industry) to the great consumer exhibitions drawing more than 100,000 visitors. In addition, numerous specialised events held here correspond to such city industry clusters as shipping, aerospace, media and renewable energies.

Congress Center Hamburg

Only a park separates the extended and modernised CCH – Congress Center Hamburg from the Messe fair / exhibition site. Cultural events are held here, but above all, major international congresses. Thanks to the direct connection between the new multi-function hall and the CCH’s conference area and its proximity to the trade fair grounds, Hamburg Messe and Congress GmbH is one of the strongest competitors worldwide in the market segment for specialised congresses with accompanying exhibitions.
