GHM – At a glance

Founded: April 9th 1968

 

GHM emerged from the "Verein für Handwerks-Ausstellungen und Messen e.V." ("Association for Skilled Craft Exhibitions and Trade Fairs"), founded in 1948. The fact that GHM has its headquarters at the Munich exhibition grounds can be traced back to the origins of the Internationale Handwerksmesse: the latter started out in 1949 as one of the first large-scale Munich trade fairs. When the Messe München exhibition grounds moved to their current site in Riem in 1998, GHM also relocated its offices to be right at the heart of the action in one of Europe's biggest and most cutting-edge trade fair centres.
