MesseMomente - A photo exhibition for the 20 year anniversary of the new exhibition grounds
In the year 1996, the new exhibition grounds were opened and the Leipziger Messe subsidiaries FAIRNET and fairgourmet were established. Some of the best impressions of that period, documented in 20 photographs, can now be viewed in the atrium of the Messehaus as part of the "MesseMomente 2016" exhibition from 25 August to 14 November on the occasion of the 20th anniversary.
From the laying of the foundation stone on 25 August 1993 and the official opening of the finished exhibition grounds three years later to the many exciting events and festivities that have been held on the new grounds - each photo tells a unique story and invites you to take a journey through time.
The exhibition is completed with many personal impressions of the people who work on the trade fairs. Employees of Leipziger Messe had a chance to participate in the exhibition as part of a photo competition "Share our best MesseMomente". From the 150 photos that were submitted, the jury selected the best ten, which can now be viewed together with ten other images from professional photographers.
The exhibition is open to visitors from Monday to Friday, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, from 25 August to 14 November 2016; please register in advance by contacting Kerstin Ratzenberger (0341/678-8127 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
