Messe Stuttgart

Green Festival has joined forces with Messe Stuttgart, a leading international tradeshow organizer producing Europe’s largest consumer show on sustainability, green products and fair trade. This dynamic partnership leverages extensive networks and tradeshow experience to expand the reach and impact of Green Festival.

Messe Stuttgart is the organizer of a series of concurrent consumer shows in the Sustainable Economy, including shows like “The Market for good taste – the Slow Food Trade Fair,” “FAIR HANDELN – international exhibition focusing on Fair Trade and globally responsible trade and activities,” “Garden outdoor environment – exhibition for garden and lifestyle,” “i-Mobility – exhibition for intelligent mobility, environment and technology,” “YogaExpo – the trade fair for yoga, Ayurveda,” “Haus Holz Energie – the large sustainable building and energy trade fair,” and more. The concurrent events featuring over 1,150 exhibitors attract more than 80,000 visitors annually.

Messe Stuttgart and the ICS International Congress Center Stuttgart, a business division of Landesmesse Stuttgart GmbH, have been setting sustainable trends since they first opened in October 2007. Their central concern is the conservative use of resources and the promotion of an environmentally responsible attitude, including energy use, waste management, water conservation, green transportation, good food and conscious employees.
