Celebrates a Mega Year of Records
Top results in the home market and abroad, for its own as well as guest events: Messe München is very pleased about the best year in its history. Group sales for 2019 will likely be around EUR 480 million. The EBITDA-earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization-is expected to exceed EUR 130 million. A substantial increase is also becoming evident in terms of exhibitors, visitors and events carried out. Messe München is thus continuing its successful growth course.
"For Messe München, 2019 was a year of superlatives and we are very, very proud of it", says Klaus Dittrich, Chairman & CEO of Messe München.

"This is the result of a foresighted, long-term focusing of our exhibition business on strengthening the home market and international business, the two mainstays in this mega year of records. With our sales figures, we are well on the way to achieving the objectives of our Strategy 2021."
In the year 2019, Messe München organized 43 events of its own throughout the world, 15 of them in Munich and 28 abroad. In addition, there were 163 guest events and congresses at the Messe München Locations. The total of 206 events at home and abroad were attended by about 3.15 million visitors and 44,500 exhibitors. In the home market of Munich, around 2.5 million visitors and 32,500 exhibitors were welcomed. Most gratifying here was the increase of three percent in both exhibitor and visitor numbers at the company's own events compared to the previous editions. The number of exhibitors from abroad even increased by nine percent, visitors from abroad by seven percent.
