The Trade Fair Centre

The Trade Fair Centrezoom

The Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre (Messe Karlsruhe) opened in 2003 offers 52,000 m² of hall space and 62,000 m² of outdoor grounds – with a modern infrastructure, exemplary functionality, and prize-winning architecture.

Four spacious exhibition halls flooded with natural daylight. Including the dm-arena for a maximum of 14,000 visitors, an Events Hall (Aktionshalle) with all-round glazing, the green atrium: Messe Karlsruhe offers you ideal conditions for innovative events, whether an international trade fair with thousands of visitors, an exclusive event with hand-picked participants, a professional convention, or an open-air event.

Clarity meets inspiration

The Karlsruhe Trade Fair grounds give you both: an open, clearly arranged area for efficient trade fair visits – and generously-proportioned exhibition areas for inspired trade fair appearances. Even the first impression is a surprise. Spacious, bright, and wood in abundance: four elegant, appealing, and experience-oriented halls, each one offering 12,500 m² of floor space.

Each one of the four halls is at ground level and column-free with a floor loading capacity of 3000 kg/m² and can be darkened as required. A sophisticated logistics system allows rapid assembly and dismantling. And a second entrance area with a separate car par assures you relaxed visitors even at peak hours.

All four halls can be reached quickly from the entrance foyer and always protected from the elements – via glazed passageways. The electronic guidance and information system with a large LED display panel in the Aktionshalle (Events Hall) provides additional convenience and easy orientation.

The rich variety of our regional event cuisine provides the appropriate culinary pleasures. Enjoy a short break from the trade-fair bustle in the self-service Eastside restaurant at the East Entrance (Eingang Ost), the cafe in the Aktionshalle, the two bistros between the halls, or the glazed restaurant on the first floor of the foyer.
