Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre

Four halls and an outdoor area for every kind of event

Four equally large exhibition halls, a spacious entrance hall, a greened inner area and a spacious outdoor area - from 2024 with an expanded multifunctional area - comprise the trade fair campus in Karlsruhe-Rheinstetten.

Our Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, which opened in 2003, is equipped with modern infrastructure so we can quickly adapt all venues to comply your specific wishes. Whether large-format exhibition rooms or a multifunctional hall for events, we have the right location for your event in Karlsruhe. The dm-arena is the flagship of the four halls: it can be completely darkened and is ideal for TV broadcasts and show events.

The large outdoor area complements our range of halls on the exhibition grounds and offers organisers and exhibitors additional space. And there's no shortage of it: from 2024, it will offer an additional 105,000 sqm of exhibition space, partly asphalted and with all the necessary connections such as water, electricity, communication and catering facilities.
