Was present during Essen Security 2018. Halls are good, organisation and content also good. Catering however was very bad. Understaffed, badly trained, badly managed, power cut during lunch service, no cutlery for at least 2 hours. Needs some attention!

Located about 10 minutes away from the Main Railway Station, 4 stops on the U Bahn. Great place and some nice eateries in the neighbourhood.

Messe Essen is a nice fairground in that one does not have to go outside to change between the halls. There are lockers for luggage, but these are difficult for you to find. Food and beverage I found to be overpriced. As an exhibitor, out...More
