“wire/Tube” will benefit from Dusseldorfs fair’s renovation

August 2017 — In May 2017, the fair’s ground was broken for reconstruction of the southern entrance area and Hall 1. The plans for a complete reconstruction have been definitively approved for implementation. The capital expenditure for the section amounts to Euro 140 million.

Dusseldorf/Germany (fair corporation) – In total, Messe Dusseldorf will invest Euro 636 million in their premises before 2030. The works are to be completed by summer 2019. The new South Entrance will give a modern presence on the banks of the river Rhine, looking out over the city of Dusseldorf. Trade fair visitors and convention delegates will be welcomed by a new illuminated and translucent canopy, 7,800m² in size and around 20 m high. The scope of the renovation of the South Entrance also includes the reconstruction of Hall 1. To this end, the fair corporation plans to demolish the current Halls 1 and 2, which are smaller, and replace them with a new build 2017. Hall 1, measuring 158m by 77m, with over 12,000m² of floor space, will then be around the same size as Halls 8a and 8b. The new hall will meet the high technical standards that the entire trade fair centre is subject to. It will be accessible via seven gates, with suspensions from the hall ceiling being as easy to configure as it is to set up stands using the hall floor. Pedestrians can use the bridge on the 1st floor to cross between the hall and the Congress Centre. As well as being connected to Halls 3 and 4, there will be a main route leading from the South Entrance directly to the rest of the premises. In 2018, the “Tube” exhibitors previously housed in Halls 1 and 2 will be provided with alternative, attractive stand options in halls 16 and 17. So Tube 2018 will be held in halls 3 to 7.0 and halls 16 and 17. The exhibitors of “wire” 2018 will present their innovations in halls 9 to 16. The master plan for the fairground’s modernisation was started in the year 2000 with the new construction of Halls 6 and 7a.
