* Standing room for 11,000
* Seating capacity for 8,000
Below a spectacular roof construction an architectural room concept unfolds and opens in all directions and not only because of the glass façades. With the turning and sliding doors it is possible to open half of the space of the hall so that the interior and exterior spaces are completely merged. Thus, the outdoor ground of the fair is integrated with the indoor area and results in an open-air-effect that is unique in all of Europe.
