Consumer fairs

The Consumenta in Nuremberg is one of the leading German consumer fairs. On the basis of this successful concept, we also organise consumer fairs in Augsburg and Würzburg, which are always geared to the character and special features of the respective region and are regularly a meeting point and discovery event for the region.

Special interests

Our programme also includes special interest fairs with an international orientation, e.g. the “AMERICANA”, Europe's top event for Western riders, and the “Fascination Horse” which presents classical equestrian events and attracts elite equestrian sportspeople with its top-class tournaments.

In 2023, the new Music Trade fair will be held for the first time in the Exhibition Center Nuremberg. The fair will focus on the diversity and quality of musical instrument making and is aimed at musicians, from beginners to professionals.

The Nuremberg Whisk(e)y fair THE VILLAGE has developed into one of the largest and most important whisk(e)y trade fairs in Europe since its founding in 2013. It’s a popular place for industry insiders to gather every year and an event both for whisk(e)y connoisseurs and those just discovering the spirit. The Nuremberg Gin & Tonic Fair is a lifestyle event that allows visitors to discover all the many variations of gin and tonic that exist.
