Leipziger Messe GmbH with the Congress Center Leipzig (CCL) and its five subsidiaries ends the 2013 event year with record sales estimated at over 85 million euros. “This was the best business year for Leipziger Messe since German reunification,” says Managing Director, Martin Buhl-Wagner. “For this we would like to thank our clients, partners and employees.” In total around 1.2 million guests visited the 37 trade fairs, 97 conventions and 34 events in the areas of business, politics, sport and entertainment. The business of the five subsidiaries also showed very positive development.

“The multi-pillar concept we are using as our strategic basis is bearing fruit,” says Buhl-Wagner, summing up. “Our exhibitors, visitors and customers are also increasingly expecting us to practise sustainability.  That is why the corporate group is once again undergoing Green Globe certification.”

The record result for the Leipziger Messe corporate group can be explained on the basis of five points:
  • Highly successful industry and trade fairs in 2013
  • Large number of high-calibre conventions
  • Foreign business strengthened – cooperation with environmental trade fair in Russia in 2014
  • Large-scale and corporate events contribute to success
  • Sustainability in action – construction of a combined heat and power plant
