All Expectations Exceeded for denkmal and MUTEC
The 12th edition of the historic preservation sector’s leading European trade fair, denkmal, and the international trade fair MUTEC have ended with outstanding results. 13,900 visitors made use of the opportunity to get up to speed on the latest developments and current trends at the two trade fairs. Markus Geisenberger, Chief Executive Officer of Leipziger Messe, declared: “By achieving a significant increase in the number of its visitors, denkmal has proven admirably that it is Europe’s most important event for the historic monument preservation sector. MUTEC was able to register growing visitor numbers too. It was for the first time organised by Leipziger Messe itself, which turned out to be a great success. In combination, these two international trade fairs have come to take the role of a vanguard for the preservation of cultural heritage.”
We look forward to the chance to welcome you back to Leipzig in 2018!

(11/03/2016) Russia will once again contribute to the historic preservation sector’s leading European trade fair, denkmal, with three shared stands this year – for the Russian Federation, St. Petersburg, and Moscow. In particular, Moscow’s municipal government delights visitors in Leipzig every two years with an elaborately designed stand that follows a specific theme. This year, the stand pays homage to the protected WDNCh trade fair area, both for historic and topical reasons.
