The Koelnmesse 3.0 investment programme, which will have a total volume of more than €600 million by 2030, made good progress last year. The first stage of construction, the new multi-storey car park at the Zoobrücke, was first used for dmexco 2017, for which it provided 2,000 parking spaces and a logistics area for over 300 trucks.

Koelnmesse is taking the digital transformation very seriously as a basis for new business models and for the improvement of its own processes. As a result, it will invest over ¤50 million in digitalization by 2022 - as part of the Koelnmesse 3.0 programme, for innovative digital services such as the furnishings platform ambista, and for the creation of a state-of-the-art IT infrastructure.
