Nuremberg is proud to be host of international trade fairs

At a time when small tacky health food stores existed and eco-freaks were dressed in linen, some people got together and launched a tiny organic trade fair.

Today where Health Food stores can be found on every corner and discount supermarkets are even stocked with organic products the tiny organic fair has turned into a world leading trade fair for organic products.
When you talk to Bernd Dietrich, head of Nuremberg Messe for over ten years, about BioFach, now the largest trade organic trade fair in the world, he seems very satisfied.

The International Toy Fair is of course still the biggest and most famous trade fair in Nuremberg but it has always been organised by external partners. This also applies to the other big trade fairs like Consumenta and Journey & Tourist.

The Nuremberg Messe itself has been following different directions and has been concentrating on highly specialised international trade fairs. So it is no wonder that their Biofach fair has now its own show in USA, Brazil and Japan as well as for the first time in China in 2007.
It seems as Nuremberg Messe has found its own successful way as total revenue has trippled in the last ten years to 125 Million Euros. Since 2004 the number of visitors have increased from 690.000 to 830.000. Alone 1,3 millon visitors came to the International Toy Fair.
Over the last ten years over 400 million Euros were invested in the Convention Hall, infrastructure,Congress Centre as well as for a modern parking space and a automated parking guidance. Nuremberg has developed into a equally important fair ground like Munich, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Friedrichshafen and Leipzig which all have newly built grounds.

A wellness and nature skin care trade fair will be held in Nuremberg in 2007 the first time. When the tiny group of pioneers formed BioFach trade fair they would have never imagined of such a fair being launched one day.
