Messe Augsburg continues to focus on regional specialties in catering

“Die Tafeldecker” (the Tafeldeckers) catering and hospitality company will be responsible for catering at Messe Augsburg: this regional company, which operates three restaurants, a catering service and a cookery school, will ensure the physical wellbeing of all visitors and participants at Messe Augsburg from the beginning of the 2023 new year.

With the Tafeldeckers on board, the trade fair venue will have a professional catering service partner from January 2023, who won over Messe Augsburg with their superb offer. The Tafeldeckers impressed us with their upscale cuisine and a team with decades of experience in excellent restaurants. Added to this are a unique service and passion for their business sector - two attributes they have in common with Messe Augsburg. When you put all these ingredients together, this makes them an excellent partner for trade fairs and other events.

Bavarian-Swabian specialties for international trade fair guests

Another asset of the Tafeldeckers is the regional aspect, which is extremely important to them, combined with the quality that sets them apart: contemporary regional delicacies served under the name Bavarian-Swabian tapas by outstanding chefs. In addition, they offer international specialties that have been carefully selected and "Bavarianized". Messe Augsburg will also offer this special feature to its trade fair customers and guests in the future. The Tafeldeckers will hit the ground running with Messe Augsburg for the first events in the new year: Visitors and exhibitors from near and far can then try the Tafeldecker quality for themselves.


Lorenz A. Rau, CEO Messe Augsburg: "With the Tafeldeckers, we’ve found a catering partner who understands how to meet our demands and those of our customers with the highest standards. The quality and service orientation of our new partner and their unique concept convinced us right from the start. We are looking forward to our future collaboration!”

Toni Ludwig, owner of the Tafeldeckers: "We are delighted to be able to further expand our portfolio, and that we have found a partner in Messe Augsburg who not only shares our regional roots, but with whom we can delight our regional and international visitors with our culinary passion and expertise.”

About the Tafeldeckers:

"Die Tafeldecker" have been present in the Fuggerei, the oldest social housing complex in the world, since 2016. The Hopfengarten near the Bürgersaal in Stadtbergen followed in 2020 and the Tafeldeckers have also been available at the Golfclub Augsburg in Burgwalden since March 2022. In addition, customers can hire the Tafeldeckers as a professional catering service provider. The Tafeldeckers also operate a cookery school where they pass on their skills and experience to inquisitive gourmets. This enables the Tafeldeckers to add new, unusual flavors to Augsburg gastronomy.
