City info

Munich is the most attractive city in Germany when it comes to art, culture, fashion, shopping, leisure and sightseeing. The English Garden, Botanical Garden and Olympic Park attract thousands of visitors. The Residenz and the Nymphenburg Palace are two important buildings in the middle of the city.
Munich also occupies a leading position in an international comparison. In a unique combination, Munich offers its guests a climate of tolerance, enjoyment of life and dynamism - factors that represent a high synergy effect for every trade fair.

Another highlight and a dream destination for guests from all over the world for two weeks every year: the Munich Oktoberfest.
Traditionally, the Oktoberfest begins with the arrival of the festival landlords. Afterwards it is called "O-zapft is" at the official "Wies`n-Anstich" by Munich's first mayor. More information about the Oktoberfest can be found on the official website of the city of Munich.



Messe München has launched the Messeerfolg initiative to sustainably increase the positive effects of trade fair participation for companies. The new service for exhibitors comprises a trade fair-specific range of workshops, online training, IT-supported work tools and numerous services to help exhibitors prepare, implement and follow-up on their trade fair appearance.

In addition to imparting theoretical know-how, the initiative focuses primarily on practical support for exhibitors.

With intelligent solutions such as the trade fair budget planner, the trade fair stand planning tool, the online appointment scheduling tool as well as the invitation services and lead management solutions, the new initiative focuses specifically on the success-relevant aspects of trade fair participation. Interactive online training sessions and workshops provide best practice examples and case studies with practical tips for the trade fair planning process and also enable active exchange with other exhibitors.
