Ultra-modern fair and congress centre

The Leipzig trade fair has a long tradition and considerable international influence.

Leipzig, the Trade Fair City, renowned for trade since the 11th century, especially for long-distance trade, has a long tradition of fairs.

In 1996 this success story shifted roughly seven kilometres to the new trade fair grounds located right on Autobahn 14. Trains run by Deutsche Bahn and MDV S-Bahn trains have regular airport connections and stop directly at "Leipziger Messe", Leipzig Trade Fair station.

In 2000, Leipziger Messe's imposing glass hall was awarded an architecture prize.

The modern architecture of the Leipziger Messe, a mixture of transparency, linearity and clarity, turns the trade fairs into unique events and in 2000 the company was distinguished with the Outstanding Structure Award by the IABSE for the impressive 238 metre glass hall. With five fair halls, 111,300 square metres of undercover exhibition areas, 70,000 square metres of outdoor area and the Congress Center Leipzig (CCL), a state-of-the-art congress centre, it can support the regional economy year after year and constantly provides new momentum.
