For the fourth time, the international exhibition industry is celebrating Global Exhibitions Day. The initiator of the Global Exhibitions Day on 5 June 2019 is UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry. This year's focus is on the global economic impact of trade fairs and their contribution to the protection of resources.
Around 60% of exhibitors at German trade fairs come from abroad, and by no means only from Europe. Out of a total of 195,000 exhibitors from Germany and abroad in 2018, 47,000 (= 24%) came from overseas. This gives visitors to German trade fairs access to the global offerings of their sectors.
The export strength of the German economy is closely linked to the participation of German industry in foreign trade fairs. The presence of German companies at foreign trade fairs has been growing accordingly for years. In the meantime, 40% of the companies exhibiting in Germany are also represented at exhibitions abroad (2000: 28%).
Over 30% of visitors to German trade fairs come from abroad, and not only from Europe. Of a total of 9.6 million visitors from Germany and abroad in 2018, around 650,000 came from countries outside Europe. This gives exhibitors at German trade fairs access to worldwide demand in their sectors.
