Conventions in 2017

New fairs and old favourites make Hamburg a magnet for many sectors

Hamburg is set to host many conventions in 2017. Two premieres will be held this year: home² from January 27-29, 2017 – a fair for homeowners and those interested in building and renovating. From October 13-15, the Hamburg Motor Classics will be held for the first time in Hamburg’s fairgrounds and targets fans of vintage vehicles. The second round of regional order days will be held in July 2017.

Whisky and gin trends

Some 900 exhibitors from all over the world will present their offers for the upcoming season at the 40th Reisen Hamburg from February 8-12. Soaring interest in holidays and mini-breaks in caravans and tents has prompted more and diverse exhibitors. Later, over 180 international firms will present products focusing entirely on golf at the Hanse Golf from February 17-19, 2017. Hamburg counts among the most attractive regions for the sport making it an ideal place for the fair.

Whisky, rum, cognac and gin will take centre stage at the Hanse Spirit from February 17-19 and the Einstieg Hamburg Fair for Vocational Training, Studies and Career from February 17-18 will be held almost simultaneously. Guests may find plenty of distraction and are encouraged to concentrate on their objectives.

The agenda includes master classes, parties and special, themed events.

Internorga – Europe’s leading trade show for food service

Parents are advised to keep an eye on their children in view of such attractive bikes. Internorga is Europe’s leading trade show for food services and hospitality. Around 1,300 exhibitors will be attending the fair from March 17-21, 2017. The FH Nord, the industry get-together for the north German butcher trade, will also be held as part of Internorga.

Aircraft Interiors Expo – The world’s largest fair for aircraft interiors

Several international figures in aviation are based in Hamburg making the city a clear choice to host the Aircraft Interiors Expo April 4-6.

More than 530 exhibitors are expected and will present products such as seats, textiles, lighting, galley kitchens, cockpit doors and services for air cabin interiors. Unique products are distinguished by the Crystal Cabin Award (CCA) – the “Oscars” for the aircabin sector which are presented during the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX). Tourism is also at the heart of the World Travel Catering & Onboard Services EXPO in April which runs parallel to the Aircraft Interiors Expo. Exhibitors will present their latest products and solutions for catering and on-board services.

Painters, floorers and plasterers

From April 25-26, Hamburg’s convention centre will become a hub for some 4,000-decision makers in human resources.
