Sustainability & Green

Together into a greener future. The topic of sustainability and the green future of events is particularly close to our hearts. You can expect lectures and panels on the topic of sustainability in the event industry. In addition, sustainability-oriented exhibitors and their products will be marked separately so that interested trade buyers can find the suppliers they are looking for more quickly.

'Green Events' at Prolight + Sound

Lecture at the Green Event Day of Prolight + Sound

"Green events" are not just wishful thinking, but should become standard for all events. How can this goal be achieved and in what time frame? Where does the industry currently stand? And how must it position itself in the future?

On all four days of the fair, there will be lectures and panels on these burning issues with representatives of venues, manufacturers, educational and scientific institutions as well as agencies and innovative start-ups. In addition to organisational and technological steps towards climate-neutral events, the main topics include social sustainability, environmentally friendly tour management and sustainability communication.


The programme is created in close cooperation with the European Association of Event Centres (EVVC) with the support of the Association of Media and Event Technology (VPLT).

Sustainable event operations at Messe Frankfurt

Frankfurter Messegelände

Messe Frankfurt's sustainable development is being driven forward with its own Sustainability Board. Messe Frankfurt has also signed the "Net Zero Carbon Events Pledge". This commits us to climate-neutral event operations by 2040 at the latest.

Measures that are already being actively implemented today are, for example:

  • Photovoltaic systems on the exhibition grounds: these can generate a total of 2.4 gigawatt hours per year the equivalent of energy for 500 households!
  • Stand, hall and grounds power supply completely with green electricity since 2020
  • Efficient management of recyclable materials: 90 per cent of the waste produced at trade fairs on the grounds is returned to the material cycle
  • E-cars: More and more company vehicles run on electricity - numerous charging stations are available on the grounds.
  • Green oases: There are "green oases" on the exhibition grounds themselves: over 890 trees even 244 vines and beehives can be found on the grounds.
