Our centre is regularly occupied by different worlds. Naturally in the form of the various industries that the shows and meetings represent – indeed this is what we convey in our motto “Your world, our focus”. But many of the events are also important to the world around us.
Ever since its formation in 1961, Elmia has held fairs on themes such as forestry, agriculture, the environment and energy. Perhaps this is because the centre was built in the heart of farmland? In any case many green, beneficial ideas have clearly originated here.
When it comes to fairs with an environmental theme, we have often been ahead of our time. In the 1970s we hosted fairs on water care, waste management and energy, for example. Today several of our fairs have a green profile – Elmia Agriculture and Elmia Subcontractor, to name but a few.
