Exhibition Site

Friedrichshafen, which is also home to the famous zeppelins, features one of the world’s most modern exhibition centers and a superb infrastructure. The MESSE FRIEDRICHSHAFEN sets standards with regard to functionality and architecture.
Focus on the inclusion of green areas, wood and glass has resulted in the creation of light and natural surroundings for an animating and relaxed business atmosphere. 

The exhibition site has direct access to Friedrichshafen Airport via a separate taxiway. Exhibitor aircraft can taxi directly to the static display area on the open grounds or into the exhibition halls. Halls A3, A4 and A7 are fitted with hangar doors, wide enough for aircraft with a wingspan of more than 22 meters.

Best known for its trade shows and its central location in Europe, the city of Friedrichshafen provides excellent access to major European markets such as Switzerland, Austria, Italy, France and many countries in Central Europe. AERO is also popular with exhibitors and visitors from the UK, Russia and the United States who come to Lake Constance to attend the trade show.

International shows, major sport events or company functions - advanced technology and a perfect infrastructure ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible. We are particularly proud of the fact that we receive so many compliments for our outstanding, customer-focused service.

With around half a million passengers a year Friedrichshafen airport is the second largest in Baden-Württemberg. Friedrichshafen is the gate to the large international hubs of Frankfurt and London. Comprehensive scheduled connections mean stress-free travel. The direct link to the airport by rail means that passengers can alight at the stop "Flughafen/Messe". Shuttle buses take air and rail passengers to the site in a few minutes.

Zurich airport is only 70 km away from Lake Constance and can be reached easily on the Romanshorn ferry and the Swiss railway SBB with regular schedules. The immediate proximity to the Zeppelin-Luftschifftechnik company lets you gain fascinating impressions and allows you to take advantage of the tourist flights on offer.

Whether a one-hour round flight of Lake Constance or a complete company charter is what you need, Deutsche Zeppelin-Reederei offers options for attractive incentives and adventurous entertainment programmes.

Modern technology

A media network has been laid across the entire exhibition site. Every 7.5 metres we supply the necessary connection points for power, water, compressed air and telecommunications. Roof suspension points are also fitted at intervals of 7.5 metres.

Wood, which is the structural element of the roof construction, gives the halls a natural and attractive look. The multifunctional halls A1 and A2 also have added noise insulation, for better acoustics for concerts, congresses etc.

None of the halls, with the exception of halls B4 and A6, have roof supports which allows for optimum and unlimited site planning.

Halls A3 and A4 have doors with a width of more than 22 metres for access of large exhibits and entire aircraft to the halls.

Specially reserved parking spaces between the halls keep distances particularly short for exhibitors. The camping ground in the area of the East Car Park has an infrastructure that makes living on wheels truly comfortable.


More oppertunities

The 4,000 sqm Hall A2 can be divided into up to 3 modules for conferences, congresses or similar events of this kind. Modules can be scaled for 1,000 to 3,000 people.

On the 1st floor of the West Entrance there are more congress and conference rooms next to the central exhibition restaurant. These have capacity for between 10 and 450 participants.

The light flooded foyer - designed as a communication and meeting area - serves as a distribution and connection element at the same time. It is, however, also suitable for product presentations, small exhibitions and receptions or as a platform for business events.
