We celebrate anniversary – 35 years Messe Augsburg!

On April 9, 2023, Messe Augsburg celebrates its 35th anniversary on the occasion of the opening of the trade fair grounds. With an investment of around 30 million marks and a construction period of less than a year, the Schwabenhalle and five other lightweight halls were completed as planned, right on time for the ceremony. The baptism of fire followed immediately: in the so-called "opening week", more than 50,000 visitors came to the exhibition center - 30,000 of them at the Open Day on April 9 alone, and others then to concerts by Ute Lemper and the Ersten Allgemeine Verunsicherung, among others - and made the opening a complete success. Incidentally, the trade fair company itself is celebrating its 37th birthday this year: it was entered in the commercial register back in June 1986.
