Welcome to Global Gate!

One World. One Gate. Unique Global Services.

Trade fairs have to keep up with the rapid pace of globalisation so they can offer companies access to the world’s main emerging markets. In international trade fair business, it is therefore essential to create professional communication platforms for globally active exhibitors in these markets. Messe Düsseldorf with its subsidiaries and expert partners is now offering you a new service brand – Global Gate – for your global business with the plastics and rubber industry.

One World. One Gate. Unique Global Services. With this positioning, Messe Düsseldorf with its expertise from K has reconfigured itself as the “gateway to the world”. With a new autonomous and expressive service brand that stands for the international strategy of Messe Düsseldorf, for its promise of performance and its customer-focused service. Our own trade fair platforms and strategic alliances with leading trade fairs for plastics and rubber worldwide give you the opportunity to be present in the emerging markets that mean most to you. Global Gate brings together the best of two established brands in international trade fair business. And offers you the best for your business success under a single umbrella.

We look forward to welcoming you.
