With global portfolios it is represented on all relevant growth markets worldwide and is conveniently located next to Düsseldorf airport.

Kirstin Deutelmoser, director, business development, Messe Düsseldorf, commented, “We are very pleased to be a member of the AEV again after some years of absence. The exchange with the AEV network was very enriching in the past and we will now reconnect with it for the future, representing the City of Düsseldorf and Messe Düsseldorf as an outstanding trade fair location.”

Rachel Parker, director, AEV, commented “We are thrilled Messe Düsseldorf is returning to AEV membership. Being a member of our association cultivates connections between venues facilitating the exchange of insights and keeping them abreast of the latest event venue management technologies, trends and best practices.”
