Hair and Beauty 2008 Postponed

The Hair and Beauty fair planned for 27 and 28 April 2008 has been postponed. This decision was taken by the Board of Management of Germany's fair and exhibition company after the companies of the hair-cosmetic industry had failed to register for this year's Hair and Beauty. "We very much regret having to take this decision but we want to offer planning certainty to those companies that did support the fair and register at an early stage", said Dr. Michael Peters, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt GmbH. Additionally, it is still possible at this stage to ensure that all visitors are made aware of the new situation.

Messe Frankfurt will decide on the future of Hair and Beauty after holding consultations with the Federation of the German Hairdressing Trade the notional sponsor of the event the Advisory Council and leading representatives of the exhibitor and visitor sides. This decision will be announced in due course.

Messe Frankfurt took over Hair and Beauty from the previous organisers, Dr. Kater Marketing, in April 2006. The first Hair and Beauty held by Messe Frankfurt attracted a good 37,000 visitors to Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre. Thus, Hair and Beauty was Germany's biggest hair-dressing show in 2007.

With annual revenues of 423 million and over 1, 400 employees around the world, Messe Frankfurt is Germany's biggest fair and exhibition company. The corporate group has a global network of 14 subsidiaries, five branch offices and 48 international sales partners, which represent Messe Frankfurt in over 150 countries of the world. Events 'made by Messe Frankfurt' are held at over 30 venues worldwide. In 2007, the Messe Frankfurt group organised a total of 113 fairs, 69 of them outside Germany.

At present, the Exhibition Centre can boast 578,000 square metres of ground space with nine exhibition halls and a congress centre. The company is publicly owned with 60 percent being held by the City of Frankfurt and 40 by the State of Hesse.
