Our hall for great show moments

Overview Trade Fair Centre

Our large multifunctional hall in Karlsruhe ranks among the largest of its kind in Germany. Big TV shows, sporting events or company celebrations find a special stage in the dm-arena at Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, as do conventions and trade fairs. Spacious, modern and equipped with a special ceiling construction made of high-quality materials, the dm-arena conjures an atmosphere you wouldn’t expect from a multipurpose hall. Many stars and celebrities have already been our guests here.
