Many companies are already beginning planning for exhibitions in 2017. For almost 130 German exhibitions over the first eight months of 2016 – from international trade fairs to regional public exhibitions – FKM-certified exhibitor, exhibition space and visitor figures are already available and can be viewed free for planning purposes at And of course, data from the years 2015 and earlier is also available. The data is certified by the renowned auditing company Ernst & Young at the request and according to the rules of FKM – the Society for the Voluntary Control of Fair and Exhibition Statistics.

This confirms the reliability of FKM data and makes it possible to conduct direct comparisons, either to the same exhibition in previous years or to other exhibitions. For many of these exhibitions, there is also data about the visitor structure.

This enables exhibitors to identify which exhibitions are attracting “their” target groups and thus provides a secure basis for deciding whether to participate in an exhibition for the first time, or once again. In total, over 200 exhibitions of the current year are subject to FKM certification.
