Koelnmesse organises over 80 trade fairs, exhibitions and events – plus around 2,000 congresses held each year in the cathedral city. This puts it in the top ten trade fair centres in the world and makes it the third largest in Germany. Since the middle of the year, trade fair organisers and their clients in the Southern Halls have been able to count on Neumann&Müller Veranstaltungstechnik's (N&M) many years of expertise: the company will provide comprehensive support for exhibitors in Halls 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 11 – and therefore for 182,000 m² of a total of around 400,000 m² of exhibition space – in the field of safety-related wire suspension systems. Koelnmesse and N&M recently agreed on a service partnership to that effect. Exhibitors in search of a perfect trade fair presence can also take advantage of N&M's extensive portfolio covering all areas of event technology.
This collaboration marks a reprise of the two companies' long years of cooperation: from 2009 to 2013 N&M also acted as a service partner to Koelnmesse and its clients for specific halls. Moritz Späth and his team at N&M put together a new technical and business concept which saw them emerge victorious from the bidding process. In future, N&M will show a presence at its own branch office on the grounds of the trade fair centre, enabling the company not only to ensure reliable implementation for exhibitors in the field of wire suspension systems and rigging but also to provide trade fair planners with N&M's entire portfolio of high-quality solutions for the deployment of video, lighting and audio at short notice.
