On Wednesday, September 25, Messe Düsseldorf put its new Hall 1 into operation after a two-year construction period. The first event: Expopharm, Europe's biggest trade fair for the pharmacy sector. The contracted event, run by Avoxa, the media group of German pharmacists, marks the beginning of continuous occupancy until Drupa in late June 2020. K, the world's premier trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry, has been the first proprietary event to occupy the new hall from October 16 to 23, 2019. 158 m long, 77 m wide and with over 12,000 square metres of floor space without any pillars, the new Hall 1 is roughly the size of Halls 8 a and b, offering 558 square metres more space than the two old Halls 1 and 2. It will be accessible via seven gates, and it will allow suspensions from the ceiling and also the supply of facilities to stands from the hall floor. Visitors access the hall through the 16.5-m high, transparent foyer, whose 2,000 square metres can also be used for events. Located in front of the foyer will be an oversized, 7,800m² canopy roughly 20 m high made of translucent glass fibre fabric. It will be completed over the coming months and serve as a landmark for the new entrance.
