Entry in the North American market

August 1, 2013 Messe Stuttgart has joined forces with Green Festivals, the largest and most successful series of consumer shows focusing on sustainability education and green products and services in the North American market. For the last 16 years, Green Festival has pioneered consumer events showcasing exhibitors representing the green, sustainable economy in diverse sectors including food, fashion, lifestyle, mobility, finance, energy, health, travel and more. The former employees of the Green Festivals series are being taken on by the newly founded subsidiary of Messe Stuttgart in order to ensure the continuity of the business model. With its third subsidiary abroad, Messe Stuttgart is now also present and active in the United States. We plan to extend the well-established Green Festival event series to other cities and to position additional Stuttgart trade fair and exhibition opportunities in North America.
