Germany’s Most Successful Private Trade Fair Promoter

P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG has been Germany’s most successful private trade fair pro-moter for decades in the field of technical trade fairs and technically oriented public exhibi-tions. With globally esteemed events such as the Control international trade fair for quality assurance and the Motek international trade fair for automation in production and assem-bly, Schall has succeeded in developing entirely new markets and thriving market plat-forms.

As trade fair heavyweights, Control and Motek are now able to claim the status of globally leading events. The Fakuma international trade fair for plastics processing and the Blechexpo international trade fair for sheet metal processing take second place in the world rankings for their respective industry sectors.

The overall trade fair portfolio of the Schall group of companies is distinguished by the unique combination of outstanding, technically accomplished events which are consistently aligned to the market, and the public exhibitions promoted by fully owned subsidiary Messe Sinsheim GmbH which enjoy success all over Europe. The Schall group of companies was founded in 1962 as a garage start-up by Paul Eberhard Schall in the southern German town of Neuffen, and evolved into a global player on the trade fair scene over a period of dec-ades. Its longstanding success is based on a consistent niche market philosophy, a constant willingness to innovate and world-class service for exhibitors and visitors.

Depending upon event scheduling, eight technical trade fairs are held both nationally and in-ternationally, and four world-class public exhibitions are promoted in Germany each year. The Schall group, which also includes PESCHA Media-Agentur, is represented in roughly 20 industrialised nations around the world by agencies abroad, as well as by licensed events and collaborations. The clearly defined success strategy: Schall makes “trade fairs for mar-kets”.
