Messe Essen would like to make a responsible contribution to a slower spread of the novel Corona virus. For this reason, we have decided to limit the number of employees working directly at and on the exhibition grounds to a core team for the time being. We therefore ask for your understanding that there may be delays in answering telephone or written enquiries. We will deal with all enquiries as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding and stay healthy!

As the centre of the Rhine-Ruhr cultural landscape, the Grugahalle presents jazz, pop and rock stars from around the world. It is a show stage and concert hall for stars and orchestras, and a sports venue for tennis, handball, gymnastics, boxing and football. It is a circus ring and ice palace.
