The Munich exhibition grounds provide 18 halls with 200,000 m² of exhibition space, and Germany's largest outdoor grounds, covering an area of 425,000 m². The grounds in München-Riem were inaugurated in 1998 to relieve the trade fair halls at Munich's Theresienhöhe. The State of Bavaria, which holds a stake in Messe München International representing 49.9% of the shares, contributed approximately 325 million Euros toward construction costs, which totalled around 1.3 billion Euros.
Trade fairs of international relevance
Bavaria is the ideal location for trade fairs and events of any kind. The three large Bavarian trade fair grounds open up access to international markets for Bavarian companies, thereby making a key contribution to export promotion—an important factor for Bavaria as an export-oriented business region.
Messe München International
Since 1997, the State of Bavaria, which holds 49.9% of the shares in NürnbergMesse, has participated in the numerous expansion and modernisation projects, contributing more than 50 million euros toward new halls and the NürnbergConvention Center East.
Messe Augsburg's principal shareholder is the City of Augsburg. It is operated by Augsburger Schwabenhallen Messe- und Veranstaltungsgesellschaft mbH (ASMV), which is successively developing into a trade fair organiser. The State of Bavaria has contributed nearly 40 million to numerous modernisation works at Messe Augsburg.
