Hanover is known all over the world as the trade fair capital par excellence. Every year an average of 113 national and international trade fair events take place in the largest exhibition space in the world, which boasts 26 halls. These events include the Hannover Messe (Hanover Fair), the CeBIT and the trade show EMO.
As the airport of Hannover-Langenhagen is just eleven kilometres north of the city and enjoys a good S-Bahn connection, trade fair guests can reach the exhibition halls in less than half an hour. Thus it is that most visitors to the capital city of Lower Saxony only get to know the area between the exhibition space and the airport or train station, and thus only associate the city with trade fairs.
