SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN 2021
on the New Fair Site in Essen
Thisn year, the world's premier fair, SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN, will take nplace in Düsseldorf as a guest event for once. The reason for this is nthe modernisation work on the fair site in Essen. Upon the conclusion ofn this, exhibitors and visitors will find optimum conditions at Messe Essen.
The New Messe Essen will be characterised by open, functional narchitecture, simple orientation, flexible logistics and modern ntechnology. The construction work which started in May 2016 is right on ntrack so that the new foyer covering an area of 2,000 m² and the new nHall 6 will already be inaugurated in November of this year at the end nof the first construction phase. The modernisation will be concluded in n2019 so that the next SCHWEISSEN & SCHNEIDEN in 2021 will take placen in Essen again.
One of the technically most modern fair sitesn in Germany is being created in Essen at the moment. The modernisation nconcept is concentrating on the demands of exhibitors and visitors. "We nhave listened to our customers carefully and are implementing their nexpectations for a contemporary fair site in a consistent way," nexplained Oliver P. Kuhrt, CEO of Messe Essen. "Thanks to modern narchitecture, a spacious, single-storey hall structure with simple path nguidance and high technical standards, Messe Essen will offer perfect nconditions for both trade and consumer fairs in the future."
Inn detail, the concept makes provision for the clear structuring of the nhalls. Thus, 18 previous, sometimes small-scale halls are now being nturned into eight large halls in total. That will simplify the norientation and the logistics and will also offer completely new npossibilities for booth construction. For example, all the halls will npermit even two-storey booth structures in the future.
In then first construction phase, the architectonic highlight of the New Messe nEssen will be created by November 2017. The modern glass foyer covering nan area of around 2,000 m² in the East entrance area will be an invitingn starting point into the day at the fair and will be linked directly to nthe underground railway by its distinctive, deep-projecting canopy. New nconference and congress rooms which will have various sizes, will all ben equipped with the newest event technology and will meet the growing ndemand for conference area will be connected to the foyer.
Moreover,n the conversion will encompass the energy supply and the air nconditioning so that the newest ventilation technology will ensure a nstable temperature and a high air quality across various halls. After nthe complete modernisation in the autumn of 2019, the entire fair site nwill be on a uniformly high technical level.
The new nappearance of Messe Essen will be rounded off by the setting-up of a nGuest Club with its own entrance and a separate access road. Here, nvisitors will have the opportunity to retreat into an appealing ambiencen for discussions or simply to take a timeout from the hustle and bustle nof the fair.
