New hall 12 in Frankfurt
In Frankfurt the foundation stone is laid for the new hall 12 in the West portion of the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. The new hall will be inaugurated in time for Automechanika 2018.
The two-storey hall will be approximately 248 metres long, 118 metres wide and approximately 30 metres high. Exhibition space will be around 33,600 gross square metres in total. In his speech, Uwe Behm, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt, discussed the benefits of the new project: “The new Hall 12 is the cornerstone of our development activities in the open area of the West portion of our exhibition grounds. It will fit harmoniously with the neighbouring buildings while conveying a discernible independence. We are building a state-of-the-art, highly flexible hall with a transparent design that allows for ideal visitor management and logistics.”
An integral component of the new structure’s façade will be provided by the Via Mobile, a covered and glazed transport system with moving walkways and escalators connecting the various halls. The two-storey hall will be inaugurated in time for Automechanika 2018.
