Messe Berlin has won the 2013 Exhibition News Award for Best International Venue, edging out the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) and Johannesburg Expo Centre in the finals.
Messe Berlin received the judges’ highest marks for its new exhibition grounds at ExpoCenter Airport; the progress being made on construction of CityCube Belrin on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds; and the quality of its service for exhibitors and trade visitors.
Christian Göke, COO, Messe Berlin, thanked the “numerous national and international event organizers” who sent in statements to the awards’ program supporting Messe Berlin.
He also applauded Messe Berlin’s employees. “This award is a fantastic recognition of the efforts of all the employees at Messe Berlin,” he said. “It was their commitment that helped make Messe Berlin’s turnover in 2012 the highest in the company’s history to date.”
Trade publication Exhibition News gave out awards in 22 categories at a gala held April 10th at the Lancaster Hotel in London.
