The future is looking good. Looking good for us. And looking good for you. With the reconstruction of hall 1 and the new South Entrance we are giving our homebase a complete facelift towards the river Rhine. And making it even better than before. With more presentation facilities, meeting places, and scope for your business. We’re looking forward to 2019 – and to making your stay with us even more pleasant than it is already.
In our construction timeline you will find deteiled information about the progress of construction with pictures and video material on specific events.
Here you can access our media library, where you will find our image database with photos and renderings, as well as videos and audio contributions.
Best prospects – also for your future plans
By building a new South Entrance and, right next to it, a new Hall 1, we want to do more than erect some good pieces of architecture. We are keen to give you maximum functionality and keep our easy accessibility by car, bus and taxi – in other words: to help you enjoy your time at the trade fair even more. To achieve all this, we’re investing EUR 140 million – without subsidies.
7,800 square metres on the River Rhine, with a good view of the Düsseldorf skyline – and all under a 20-metre translucent canopy: this is how we’ll welcome you from 2019 onwards. After 170 metres you’ll pass through the glass front of the new South Entrance. A few steps further up you’ll find yourself right in the midst of it: the Foyer with over 2,000 square metres of space – an area which is suitable for meeting up and for holding events. Also, it’s definitely worth lifting your eyes and discovering the glass-enclosed meeting room which protrudes into the Foyer above the heads of all trade fair visitors and convention delegates.
Foyer: length x width x height: 93 m x 40 m x 20 m
Foyer: clear height 17.5 m
Canopy height: 20 m
Canopy material: Translucent fibreglass fabric with LED lighting
Entrance to underground car park (300 spaces)
160 above-ground parking spaces, bus stops and taxi rank
Two direct access points to the neighbouring Nordpark

Messe Düsseldorf 2030: Strategy with a Future
Now let’s look a few years further into the future – as far as 2030. We’ve invested around EUR 636 million in meeting your needs, your requests and your convenience. It’s something we started 30 years ago, when we reconstructed Halls 6 and 7 in 2000. Since then we’ve repeatedly had a critical look at our masterplan and made sure it was geared towards our visitors, exhibitors and anyone organising guest events. It’s a no-brainer for us – and it follows directly from our need for economic efficiency and sustainable development. By autumn 2016 we’d already rebuilt and completely refurbished 11 of our 19 halls and made them usable for multifunctional purposes. And of course you already saw 2019 with your own eyes. We hope you enjoyed our little trip into the future as much as we did. Looking forward to seeing you – perhaps even today, at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre.
