Hannover enjoys an international reputation as a trade fair and convention venue. The Hannover Messe – an eye-catching example of modern architecture – is the biggest exhibition centre in the world, with more than 460,000 square metres of covered indoor space and 58,000 square metres of outdoor grounds. As the venue for HANNOVER MESSE and the EMO trade fair, the 26 halls and pavilions become a showcase for technological innovation every year. Hannover also offers a range of outstanding locations for conventions and conferences.
Numerous trade fairs help drive growth in the global economy with their innovative technologies and new products. The HANNOVER MESSE trade show is the most important event for capital goods. Flagship fairs such as DOMOTEX Hannover, LIGNA Hannover, BIOTECHNICA, EMO Hannover, CeMAT and the IAA International Commercial Vehicles Show shine a light on international market trends. Thanks to its excellent transport connections and the sheer volume of exhibition space available, Hannover ranks among the top trade fair cities.
The Hannover region is also a leading destination for conferences and conventions, offering a wide variety of high-quality and unusual venues. With a palace, an adventure zoo, the TUI Arena, the Hannover Congress Centre and Hannover Messe's futuristic Convention Centre to choose from, businesses can be sure of finding the perfect location for their event. And there's no shortage of activities for that all-important supporting programme either: how about a trip to the GOP Variety Theatre, a night at the casino, or a dragon boat race on Lake Maschsee for starters? Hannover has a big reputation as an excellent host, as the EXPO 2000, the 2006 World Cup and countless trade fairs and sporting and musical events have shown.
