From 4 to 10 May that time will have come around again: the world’s largest packaging trade fair, interpack, is just around the corner! But did you know we not only hold a trade fair here at our “homebase” on the topic of finishing processes and packaging? All our international events that focus on these topics are grouped under the “interpack alliance”. And there are quite a few! In addition to events in Moscow or Shanghai we are also in the starting blocks with a food packaging trade fair in Africa. The food processing & packaging exposyum (fppe) is to run from 21 to 23 November 2017 in Nairobi, Kenya. Reason enough to take a closer look at interpack’s younger foreign brother and the location of Africa in closer depth.
Good health is something we like to wish to people, especially at the end of the year. And good luck. To the people we meet – both at home and throughout the world. To you and your families and friends we wish you Season’s Greetings and a Healthy and Successful 2017.

On 8 June 2016, is the first time UFI, the home of the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry, and its members celebrate the Global Exhibitions Day (#GED16). Messe Düsseldorf is looking forward to welcome people from all over the world at drupa 2016 – the perfect occasion to celebrate this first ever held day and to show how much fun it is to work in the exhibition industry! Watch our #GED16 Video and find out, what we love about our job!
Without tubes, wires and cables, no industry would function, daily life would be incapacitated, and our office routine – without connection cables, metal springs (for hole punches), paper clips or telephone wires – would be practically impossible. Thus the two leading trade fairs, wire and Tube, have more significance in our everyday life than it would seem at first glance. We looked around and took advantage of the opportunity to meet with our colleagues from Messe Düsseldorf North America (MDNA) for an interview.
There are all kinds of different jobs and activities at Messe Düsseldorf. . Today we’d like to highlight a job which is very specific and only relates to trade fairs – a hall manager. In all, there are 17 hall managers who look after the 19 exhibition halls on our premises. To find out what a hall manager actually does, we boldly ventured into the hurly-burly of the disassembly work after ProWein and just asked one of them. To be precise, we asked Frank Schaefer who manages Hall 9.
