Leading association of the German trade fair industry
As the umbrella organisation of the German trade fair industry, AUMA, is the combination of all those forces representing partners shaping the trade fair market, in other words, exhibitors, visitors, trade fair organisers and service companies. The main task of AUMA is therefore to promote German trade fairs at home and abroad. To this end, AUMA promotes the quality of German trade fairs by creating market transparency, supporting cooperation between market partners through an exchange of information and experience among its members and joint projects with the members.
AUMA supports the market activities in particular of small and medium-sized German companies via their participation at trade fairs in Germany and abroad. Externally, as the industry's umbrella organisation, AUMA combines the forces and represents the interests of the exhibiting, visiting and organising trade fair industry as well as the trade fair service providers on a national and international level. Internally, AUMA plays an active role in balancing the interests of these different business circles.
