Company history


Head office in Mannheim.

The company spring Messe Management GmbH was established in 1998 with three business divisions: sponsoring, stand construction and exhibition concepts. In June 2000, spring Messe Management GmbH launched its first very own exhibition under the name “Zukunft Kommune”. The “HRM Expo | Zukunft Personal” followed in November of that year.

Following the success achieved by these first two events, it rapidly became clear that the company’s future focus should be on the organisation of specialist exhibitions. Creating new exhibitions and taking over and developing existing ones consequently became the company’s core activities.

Deutsche Messe AG, one of Germany’s largest trade fair companies, acquired a majority stake in spring Messe Management GmbH at the end of June 2012 and finally took over full ownership in April 2015, making spring Messe Management GmbH a wholly owned subsidiary. Since the takeover, spring Messe Management GmbH has been systematically developing its events in the context of the Deutsche Messe Group and organises exhibitions both at home and abroad on the subjects of HR management, professional learning, corporate health, job and career as well as the public sector.

In January 2017 spring Messe Management rebranded its exhibitions. A single brand name, “Zukunft Personal”, will now be used to combine all the HR specialist exhibitions in the group. The new brand strategy’s objective is to showcase the broad spectrum of HR management trends such as digitalisation and leadership during a range of varied formats, spread throughout the year and with a shared commitment to quality, benefiting visitors and exhibitors alike.
