Germany: Messe Frankfurt Sees Record Figures for 2013; Kap Europa to Open 2014

Financial year 2013 saw Messe Frankfurt make further advances from a strategic and financial perspective as well as expanding its market position among leading international players. The company is set to end the current financial year with a new sales record of approximately €543 million and profits of over €40 million. At the same time, the foundation is being laid for the coming years. On presenting the Group’s preliminary key figures for 2013, Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Messe Frankfurt, stated: “We have reached key milestones as regards efficiency and profitability as part of our Messe Frankfurt 2020 strategic programme.” 

In 2014, Messe Frankfurt aims to reinforce and expand its market position in all business segments. This involves constantly evolving with regard to products and markets. However, it also involves making further investments in the company’s Frankfurt base. 

The Kap Europa congress centre is to go into operation in the second quarter of 2014, with the first events booked for June. Marzin: “This construction project will end on schedule and on budget.” Kap Europa houses conventions and conferences for up to 2,500 participants, thus closing a gap in the Frankfurt Rhine/Main region between the capacity on the exhibition grounds on the one hand and the hotels on the other. Even before its construction phase was completed, it was the first convention building worldwide to be awarded a DGNB Gold Preliminary Certificate on account of its outstanding sustainability.
