We will be happy to support you in planning and staging visitor-friendly trade fairs, network-promoting congresses, specialist conferences, corporate events and events for the public at large.

With over 100 years’ experience as an exhibition organiser and having staged numerous trade fairs of our own, we know what it takes to make a successful event. And we will be happy to share this know-how with you. We pay attention to sustainability in everything we do. With our direct links to public transport, local and seasonal catering choices and the use of renewable energy, we make it easy for you to opt for environmentally-friendly solutions.
