Messe Berlin's annual results for the year 2019 are on track, as the provisional figures of the annual financial statement show. According to the statement, the group closed 2019 with sales of EUR 283 million (2017: EUR 284 million). The result must be seen in the context of ongoing intensive investment by the company not only in the modernisation of the exhibition grounds but also in the expansion of its new business. As part of this strategy, in August 2019 Messe Berlin opened Hub27, a multifunctional convention and exhibition hall, after a one-and-a-half-year construction time. To further expand its business, in November 2019 the company launched a new trade fair for suppliers to the e-mobility sector called MES Expo (Mobility, Electronics, Suppliers). At the event's first edition from November 5 to 7, more than 50 national and international companies showcased to an audience of well over 1,300 representatives from the industry. The next edition will take place in Berlin November 9 to 11, 2021. Business abroad is also to be further developed. 2020 will see the launch of ITB India as the third replication of the global reference fair ITB. "Stagnation would mean market share losses in the globally expanding events business", said chairman and CEO Christian Göke.
