The Messe Frankfurt Group, the organiser of the Texcare International show, will end financial year 2016 with a high level of sales and a very profitable result compared with the rest of the sector. For the second time in a row, Messe Frankfurt Group sales are set to exceed the €640 million mark and will be comparable with the previous year’s level.

On presenting the group’s preliminary key figures for 2016, Wolfgang Marzin, president and CEO of Messe Frankfurt, said the company will reach yet another excellent result – probably in the region of €60 million – which is a marked improvement on the previous year. This year’s EBITDA will also be better than last year’s figure and set a new record.

In 2016, a total of 138 trade fairs and exhibitions were held worldwide under the Messe Frankfurt umbrella, featuring some 92,300 exhibitors – more than ever before – and attracted more than 3.5 million visitors.

Messe Frankfurt’s activities outside Germany set new records with 87 events and more than 49,000 exhibitors and 1.9 million visitors.
