Trade fair database: Tips and FAQs on searching

AUMA’s trade fair database gives you information on 5,000 trade fairs in Germany and around the world. But what’s the fastest way to find the right trade fairs? The "standard" function lets you search by name or location. The "advanced" function lets you select different criteria and search by sector, location and/or time range. You can then use filters to refine your hit list – which will give you the trade fair or selection of fairs you’re looking for!
