Messe Frankfurt is building! Due for completion in the autumn of 2018, Hall 12 is presently under construction in the western section of the exhibition grounds. The new building will offer a total of 33,600 square metres of exhibition space, split between two levels.
The two-storey building will be around 248 metres long and 118 metres wide with a height of around 30 metres. The trade marks of the two exhibition levels will be functionality and flexibility, as the lower level can be partitioned in a number of ways to produce different areas that can be used independently.
This extends considerably the range of locations the Frankfurt exhibition grounds can now offer conference and convention organizers. These include, in addition to the exhibition halls themselves, notably the Congress Center, the Festhalle, the Forum and the Portalhaus. In all, 80 convention and conference rooms with a capacity of 22,000 places are now available, along with complementary exhibition areas.
