Messe Dortmund
Official IFOY Partner

Messe Dortmund stands for innovative events. Located in the middle of Germany's most populous state, it is an expert for individually organized trade and public fairs of international importance, which are realized flexibly and close to the customer. European or world leaders in their sectors are the trade fairs JAGD & HUND, InterTabac, BOE, elektrotechnik and the CREATIVA. The trade fair program includes a total of more than 50 events.

The 4500 square meter North Entrance is the anchor point of the strategic further development of the trade fair location. Together with the light-flooded visitor passage and the rebuilt trade fair forecourt, trade, public or special interest trade fairs meet optimal conditions.

The Dortmund trade fair center has excellent transport infrastructure. A dense network of freeways, national and international train connections and airports make it easy for visitors to reach the exhibition center. The site is directly connected to six freeways and is only a five-minute drive away from Dortmund's main train station and a twelve-minute drive away from Dortmund Airport.

Covering an area of 300x70 meters, Messe Dortmund offers a total of nine exhibition halls with up to 60,000 square meters of space for individual exhibition formats. Every year, the group of companies organizes more than 1,000 events with over 1.7 million visitors from the fields of trade fairs, congresses, conferences, music, sports and entertainment. More than 9,000 exhibitors present themselves at around 60 trade fairs. This makes Messe Dortmund one of the most powerful trade fair locations for guest show organizers in Germany.

"The Ruhr region is one of the top logistics regions in Germany due to its central geographical location, the available workforce and the good infrastructure. Dortmund, with the Fraunhofer IML and many other institutions, is the heart of European logistics research. We are delighted to have been able to bring the world's most important intralogistics award, the IFOY AWARD, to Dortmund, which attracts international logistics media and trade visitors. At the same time, Messe Dortmund can expand its portfolio with TEST CAMP Intralogistics to include another exciting B2B field."
