Every year, events organized by Karlsruher Messe- und Kongress GmbH — which goes by the brand name _messe karlsruhe — bring together almost 8,000 exhibitors and 770,000 visitors in one of the most lively economic, scientific and research regions.
Our more than 300 trade fairs, congresses, cultural events and conferences take place at three locations: the ultra-modern trade fair center; Germany’s largest congress center, located in downtown Karlsruhe; and the Europahalle.
For example, since 2004 _messe karlsruhe has hosted art KARLSRUHE, which ranks as Germany’s most important art fair south of the Main River. At the same time, as host and organizer of numerous digital trade fairs and conferences in the context of digitization and art, it has become an important figurehead for the city and region of Karlsruhe. With its international audience and its expertise, _messe karlsruhe sees itself as a communication and network partner in the UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts program.
Finally, art KARLSRUHE has aspirations to present the topic of media art to an anticipated crowd of 50,000 visitors at its 2020 or 2021 edition (both held in February).
